Pigs Head Is A Traditional Mexican Meal

by yudaica2013 ·

My wife and I could feed four adults for what would cost us as a couple, eating out in the United States. You can get a big steak with all the trimmings, and drink for less than $ 6.00 USD each. Although we see many Mexicans in restaurants, we do know some who never eat out. But I would say that it is a cheap form of entertainment and value of adopting a habit. One area in which I refuse to live like a native is in some of their traditional dishes, including pig’s head.

One day we were in the local supermarket when I saw a flyer from the store with a pig’s head is illustrated in the meat section. They had his mouth came a smile! I found this horror in the meat department and have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder pig head since! I live in constant fear of receiving an invitation to someone’s house and will serve the pig’s head as the meat dish. Can you imagine that? Not on the table that smells smell roast pork. They bring a covered pan to the table only to reveal the head of a smiling pig staring at you (eyes still in his head, by the way). And what do you want? Is it to ask about the dark meat or white when dad carving the turkey for Thanksgiving? What part of the vile beast is the best meat? Is it the ears (which consume a lot of those here), neck, or maybe the nose is the most delicious! “Oh, that nose looks very good today. Hocico please!” However, if both the native as you can (with the exception of pig’s head), you will be able to save a considerable amount in their daily expenses. “Tha? Tha? That’s all folks!”
