Eeeee! Who you callin’ turkey, chicharrón?

This week in Food, Ari LeVaux visits decades-old Chicharroneria Orozco’s new digs on Bridge and samples a golden-fried plate of turkey tails (aka colitas de pavo), one of the few non-pork meats in the place.

In other chicharrón news, that’s the name of the porcine sidekick carried around by Lynette ("Shit Burqueños Say") in a new series of New Mexico State Fair commercials. Felicidades to Blackout Theatre and Expo New Mexico for a local marketing campaign that’s actually, and awesomely, local.
