(Calgary Sun)   Some people are outraged that a pizza that has 90 slices of jalapeño-infused pepperoni topped with diced jalapeño peppers is being called "La Chingona" or translated most politely as "badass." I'd be more worried what it does to diners' colons   (calgarysun.com) divider line 157

I'm thinking that by morning the pizza's description will fit better for the ass than the colon.
 
2014-03-23 05:10:02 PM  
Yah, but I'd still try a slice.

Context is everything...that word can mean "badass," "cool," or "f*cker," depending on how it's used.

There's a popular pizza chain in SoCal called Chi-Chi's...the name is Messican slang for "tits." :)

Huh, so Mexicans have their own pizzas-for-Mexicans business in the US.
I could understand maybe an Asian chain without lactose in the ingredients, but a Mexican pizza service seems unusual.
Do you pay extra for them to smuggle in your extended family? A punch card that rewards you with a flame decal for every 10 pizzas?

I like pizza patron...looking forward to try this pizza

Heh, that's the place that also accepts pesos. I'll have to try it with some Tabasco or cholula. Or both

For me jalapeño falls into that category of food where I like the taste of it, but I don't like to eat it.  Pickles are another one.   Jalapeño juice or pickle juice on my food? Awesome, it adds flavor, I just don't want to have chunks of that stuff in the food.

2014-03-23 07:54:53 PM  
I loooooooove jalapenos. Yeah, they'll blow out your colon something fierce, but that La Chingona looks like an orgy for my taste buds. Add some chopped pepper and glaze it with mango-habanero sauce ... oh my god ... i'm friggin' droolin'. If it don't make your eyeballs sweat, it's bland.

Hm, according to the Urban Dictionary a "chingona" is a "f*cking bad-ass chick". "Comida chingona" is bad-ass food or more correctly f*cking bad-ass food.

However, before anyone gets their panties in a knot, the Barrio Cafe in Phoenix has used it for a slogan since 2002:

Esta comida esta bien chingona.

Or essentially, "This food is really f*cking good." Mexicans don't say anything without putting f*ck into it.

I'd eat it. I'd ask them to put a few habaneros on there to give it a little heat too.

Hey Vasquez, you ever been mistaken for a man?
 
2014-03-23 08:22:37 PM  
It IS a pretty strong word!  You couldn't get away with using its equivalent in English.  Actually, I'd be surprised if you could get away with it in México.  Just because everyone says it doesn't mean they'll accept it written in public.

Apparently, so is geography. Here in New Mexico I have never heard it used in any other way than the last term. It's a insult.

Jalapenos. The cheap "hot" pepper. Not gonna brag, but it could be worse. Just finished BBQ with serranos, even the wife calls japs have a spiciness just a little higher than a bell pepper. Quite unlike that third world "gut killer" peppers.

Yeah, I've noticed that. At work, we have a group of folks from south of the border that work in a particular area of the facility, and my work area is right near there. Granted, these are all blue collar, likely uneducated guys but yes... it seems that every other word out of their mouth is "chinga" in some form or other (chingada, chingow, whatever) Other favorites are "verga," which literally means "rod," but you can guess the slang term, "cabron," (goat, meaning cuckold) and the old standby, "puta," meaning "whore."

It does sound pretty appealing, at least to try once.

Yeah, jalapeños aren't really that hot, not if you're an aficionado of hot.

Having said that, I once got some big jalapeños from the Mexicans at the flea market & they tried to warn me "¡Son muy picosos!" but I just smiled & said "Gracias señor." I didn't think to try them, just made stuffed jalapeños for our neighbors' party with them.

Nobody could eat them, they were so farkin' hot!

There's a pretty big variation even between peppers of the same type.  Usually jalapenos are a bit hot, but not close to unbearably so.  A local Mexican place has a dish that they serve with a griddled whole jalapeno though, and wherever they're sourcing their peppers from, it's hotter than most habaneros I've tried.

Sorry, Carlos. Pizza Patron doesn't want pizzas with good taste.

Bacon and jalepeno is imho the better pairing than jaleps and pepperoni. Gotta be new York style too because when you go deep dish all the dough and cheese seems to lessen the spice and flavor of the pepper.

There was a big Tex-Mex chain restaurant called Chi Chi's that was around for a couple decades before it bankrupted.  Pretty popular all over the east/mid-east.  I haven't been to one since at least '92, but I seem to remember them being similar to Tumbleweed.

charlesmartel11235: I can't eat pizza unless it's drowned in red pepper flakes


A pizza doesn't need anything spicier on it than mushrooms (maybe anchovies) and nothing's worse than some over the top sauce that's hot for the sake of being hot.
