(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

ReverendJasen: Lorelle: 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." :)

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.

/gimme a chimi!


The fried icecream at chi chi's is still the best I've had, the rest of the food was below average (which is probably why they're bankrupt).

. . . One ad, a man asks for the new pizza at a store but is warned only "chingones" can handle its spiciness. The customer proves his worth by claiming he can clap with one hand, make music with the tails of rattlesnakes and live with his mother-in-law for a month.

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

Jalepenos are weak sauce.

Nah. It had to have been other reasons. There are plenty of fairly bad Mexican chain restaurants that are still around.

One more in the chorus of "Jalapenos vary significantly in heat" - I grow the "gringo" variety with just a wee kick, but I've had some at some local places that'll knock you down.

I love how people only associate jalapenos with hot. The actual flavor is amaze balls if you take away the seeds/meat (the white stuff on the inside). For example, jalapeno cornbread is unreal. All it is, is just like it sounds. Cornbread with diced jalapenjos mixed into the batter. No heat at all.

I lived for years with both in-laws, a sister in-law (who went through a pregnancy under my roof) and an aunt in-law with her three kids, which includes my wife's two pregnancies of our kids.  I scoff at that pansy.  And guns were available without one shot fired.  I wanted to, but I took it like a man.

Gyrfalcon: 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.


There's a local taco chain here that has huge signs proclaiming "que pinches tacos!"

I'm suprised they get away with it.

Did they borrow that from Japan? Because chichi is the actual, normal word for breast in Japan for at least the last 1,000 years.

Words vary from dialect to dialect, but in Teq--Mex---"Chinga!" translates to "f," roughly.

"Chinga su madre!" means: "f your mother!" in Tex--Mex, and in the course of jacking with various 419 scammers, I have collected a wide assortment of phony checks, made out to: "CHINGA SUE MADRE."

Chingar is the spanish equivalent to the word fark. It's a very versatile word.

I noticed 'No heat' jalapeños in jars in the grocery store, so that's an option.  I also like fresh jalapeños in my salads, and I very much agree with the jalapeño cornbread as I sometimes make some for chili.

I've never gotten a clear answer on a full translation for "pinche" into California English. The closest I got was "a thing that was simultaneously farking shiatty, yet you can not pull away". Much more nuanced than the standard translation of "damn" or "f*coming".

Its like it sucked, and yet was unavoidable.

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.

Mmmm red pepper flakes should be on all pizza.

Screw the 'no heat' ones. I prefer to split my own and 'gut' them with a grapefruit spoon. I like the body of them to be fresh and crisp as opposed to canned/jarred ones, which tend to be a little mushy. It's 5 minutes of work that I think is well worth it.

Jalapeño cornbread and chili is like peanut butter and chocolate .

Over here in Los Angeles, there's a restaurant called Pinches Tacos. They've got 4 locations, so I don't think they're too worried about the name causing complaints.

Then there's the New Haven, CT restaurant named C.O. Jones. It got its share of controversy back when it opened.

Funny enough, despite me being Mexican, I have a dislike for 'HOT FARKING SAUCE' because there's really no reason to have a spicy sauce if it doesn't taste good. A good hot sauce has to bring both flavor and heat to the plate, not just the heat.

/Besides, most of those hot sauces have a shiat-ton of vinegar

I agree. My current favorite option, which supplies ample heat and a great flavor, is this:

I mash them into a paste and apply it to all kinds of things. Never tried it on pizza, though.

or extract.  Do what I do, peppers for everything. Actual peppers, but you don't just have heat for the sake of heat.
Peppers pair with food as much as a condiment or wine, or a specific beer.
There are a multitude of foods that do well with jalapeno, or serrano, or even poblano and a multitude that would simply fail with those choices.  Some things just scream for the fruitiness of habanero, savina, bhuts, and the like.
I don't quite get the article. Are the people saying that is a naughty word you dirty bird and you should feel bad? If so, then fark off.

But it's not that bad a word.  You might not say it in front of your parents, but it wouldn't get beeped out on prime time TV, either.
