Are you a taco fanatic? Then you should definitely check out this massive taco native to Corpus Christi. Those who see it in person have been taken aback by its unbelievable size.
This enormous taco was created by the owner of Recio’s Smokehouse Restaurant and Catering located in Corpus Christi, Texas. This baby-sized taco contains many ingredients common in breakfast tacos across the great state of Texas such as refried beans, chorizo, cheese, egg, potatoes, brisket, and breakfast sausage wrapped in a 24-inch tortilla. The difference from other breakfast tacos is, of course, the size of the tortilla and the fact that this colossal taco weighs 4.5-pounds!
The owner of the restaurant Minnie Recio stated that the idea to create this unique taco came from her sons that thought she should sell the biggest taco in the state of Texas. When she first started offering the taco it was priced at $3.50. Now Recio customers can purchase it for $12.99.
Last week a customer posted a picture of himself cradling the taco as if it was a baby on his Facebook timeline. His post went viral and was shared over 20,000 times, making Recio’s taco internet famous.
Similar to other restaurants in Texas and around the country Recio’s has a free-if-you-can-finish-it challenge. If any customer is able to completely consume the ginormous taco in less than 13 minutes they won’t have to pay for the taco. As you can imagine only a few people have managed to complete this challenge.
If you like tacos of all different sizes filled with all different kinds of ingredients than you will definitely want to come to the Texas Taco Music Fest! At this special event taco enthusiasts and music lovers will enjoy activities, shows, and of course tacos at Houston’s Discovery Green on Saturday, September 16, 2017.
