When you think of the different foods in South Texas, tacos are one of them.  And in Corpus Christi, Chacho’s Tacos ​sure know how to do them right.

And in a big way.

If you’re in the mood to scarf down some food in a short amount of time, or you just want to indulge in something different, the Almighty Chacho’s Taco is awaiting your arrival. 

Just think, a 14-inch homemade tortilla, rolled and cooked to perfection. Add in some refried beans, scrambled eggs and potatoes, and a few strips of bacon. Then top the colossal pile with carne guisada, followed by a helping of cheddar cheese.

It amounts to a 3.5 lb taco.

Now, eat it in 10 minutes.

That my friends, is the Almighty Chacho’s Taco Challenge. 

The mastermind’s behind the taco are sons of Mary Gutierrez, who have owned Chacho’s Tacos for 18 years now.

The Gutierrez family has a lot more to offer at Chacho’s, such as their weenie and eggs and lunch specials. 

This Almighty Taco has already won them recognition from Texas Monthly as some of the best tacos in Corpus Christi.

At just $15.99, every daring person should try the taco challenge. If completed, you’ll be one of the few that get a t-shirt and a framed picture on the Almighty Wall of Fame.
