The idea was brought about in this thread.

This will be done in the style of the great BurrEato geeklists.


What can you do?

1. Sign up by adding an item below.
2. Buy the Mexican food fan microbadge. mb
3. Eat tacos!


Rules

1. You have 31 days to eat 31 tacos. Feel free to shoot for 62 or maybe even 93.
2. There are no limits on how many you can eat per day.
3. This is for fun so we are lenient on the definition.
4. Keep track of your progress here.


If I get a good hot pepper crop this year, I might even give a jar of my special pepper flakes to the person who eats the most. I'll try to have enough for second and third place too. It won't be until the fall before I have my flakes ready to ship.

MUST OBEY TACO-MAN!



May 1= Avast, ye lubbers! I've consumed 4 Baha Fish Tacos from Long John Silver's! ARR!! arrrh
May 2= 6 Taco John's soft shell tacos. Wow! These are cheap! The place to do this challenge on a budget!
May 3= 4 more Baha Fish Tacos. Mmmm.
May 4= No tacos.
May 5= 2 Taco Bell Soft Grilled steak tacos, 1 Dorito Nacho Cheese Taco, and 1 Dorito Cool Ranch Taco.
May 6= No Tacos.
May 7= No Tacos.
May 8=6 home made ground beef tacos, constructed with a little help from the fine folks at Old El Paso(TM), using one of their soft taco dinner kits.
May 9= No Tacos.
May 10= 3 carnitas tacos from Chipotle.
May 11= No Tacos.
May 12= 4 Cool Ranch Dorito Tacos from Taco Bell.
May 13= No Tacos.
May 14= 4 Baha Fish Tacos.
May 15= 3 Carne Asada Tacos from El Toro's, a local inauthentic Mexican eatery.
May 16= No Tacos.
May 17= No Tacos.

May 27= No Tacos.
May 28= No Tacos.

May 30= 4 Steak tacos from Carl's Jr. The worst tacos I've had thus far. It's not so much that they tasted bad, as that they skimped on meat and veggies shamelessly. I don't know if it's just my local place or if that's a chain-wide policy, but I'm certainly never getting tacos from them again. Also, 6 Cool Ranch Dorito Supreme Tacos from Taco Bell.
May 31= 3 Chicken Tacos from Long John Silver's

Total thus far: 62 Tacos.

Living in L.A., this should be a slam dunk. At least tacos have fewer carbs than burritos.

My goal will be 0 tacos from traditional fast food chains. That means no tacos from Taco Bell, Del Taco, Burger King, Carl's Jr., or Jack in the Box (plus anyone else I may have forgotten).

My results:

May 1 = mbmbmb, Los Toros, Chatsworth, CA.
May 2 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, La Salsa Market, Reseda, CA. They sell 12 street tacos for $9.99. So I have leftovers.
May 3 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, said leftovers. mb, catered event.
May 4 = none. Had an Oki Dog instead.
May 5 = none.
May 6 = mbmbmbmbmb, Alberto's Mexican Food, Van Nuys, CA.
May 7 = mbmb, El Pollo Loco, Van Nuys, CA.
May 8 = mbmbmb, El Mexi-Tamal, Pacoima, CA.
May 9 = none.
May 10 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, San Marcos Mexican Grill, Van Nuys, CA.
May 11 = mbmb, Del Taco, Chatsworth, CA.
May 12 = none.
May 13 = mbmbmbmbmbmbmb, Rigo's Tacos, Van Nuys, CA.
May 14 = mb, Shell Station, Canoga Park, CA.
May 15 = mbmbmb, El Cafetal #5, Van Nuys, CA.
May 16 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, Tacos Mexico, Van Nuys, CA.
May 17 = none.
May 18 = mb (4 mini tacos), 7-Eleven, Van Nuys, CA.
May 19 = mbmbmb, Chipotle, Van Nuys, CA.
May 20 = mbmbmbmb, El Tapatio #6, Canoga Park, CA. mbmbmbmb, El Big Taco, Van Nuys, CA.
May 21 = none.
May 22 = none.
May 23 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, San Marcos Mexican Grill.
May 24 = none.
May 25 = mbmbmb, Baja Fresh, Westchester, CA.
May 26 = none.
May 27 = none.
May 28 = mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb, Rigo's Tacos, North Hollywood, CA.
May 29 = mbmbmbmbmbmb, El Tapatio #6, Canoga Park, CA.
May 30 = mbmb, Taco Bell, Canoga Park, CA. mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb, La Salsa Market, Reseda, CA.
May 31 = mbmbmbmb, La Salsa leftovers. Had sushi for dinner.

TOTAL
102

Beef = 36 (23 asada, 4 ground beef, 3 cabeza, 2 lengua [tongue], 1 barbacoa, 1 steak, 1 suadero [brisket], 4 mini [counts as 1 taco])
Pork = 35 (16 al pastor, 14 carnitas, 3 buche [cheek], 1 adobado, 1 chorizo)
Chicken = 22 (11 grilled, 11 stewed)
Shrimp = 3
Fish = 2 (1 fried, 1 grilled)

Well, it's "almost" Mexico... (and it's a game I've played!)

Ok. I'll try this one, although I may be in for a poor start. I've got surgery on the 1st and don't think I'll be eating anything that day. I definitely won't be heading out anywhere for at least a few days. So I'll try to make some meat and get some shells on Tuesday. For me, these will likely all be home made! I'll try to post some picks.

May 1 = 6 (2 for lunch, 4 for dinner - Home-made Kangaroo Taco)
May 2 = 4 (lunch)
May 3 = 4 (lunch), logging this early as I won't have any more today.
May 4 = soblue
May 5 = 2 (lunch)
May 6 = 4 (dinner)
May 7 = 4 (lunch)
May 8 = 3 (lunch), still all of the home-made kangaroo variety, now more spicy!
May 9 = soblue
May 10 = soblue
May 11 = 3 (lunch)
May 12 = soblue
May 13 = soblue
May 14 = 2 (lunch)
May 15 = 4 (dinner, and now even tastier than ever!)
May 16 = 4 (lunch)
May 17 = 5! (lunch)
May 18 = soblue
May 19 = soblue
May 20 = 5 (dinner - new batch of Smokey BBQ/Cajun Roo Tacos!)
May 21 = 4 (lunch)
May 22 = soblue I ran out!
May 23 = soblue
May 24 = soblue
May 25 = 5
May 26 = 4
May 27 = 4 (lunch at work)
May 28 = soblue
May 29 = 4.5 (dinner, my wife ate half of the last taco)
May 30 = nil
May 31 = nada

Total = 71.5 (Made my personal goal of 62!)

Oooh a contest I could definitely win if I wanted to, but will try not to. Not only do I eat way too much, generally for reasons other than being hungry, but I have a tendency to just eat the same thing for a long time. I guess this will cut down on the chinese food I buy. Actually this might be a good plan.

I will make them all homemade. I'll try to get some pictures. I doubt my tacos will be all that interesting, but something I make really well is guacamole. So . . . figure on a huge batch of that or two this month!

Time to put the summer I spent working at a mexican restaurant to good use!

May 1 = Kicked it off at midnight with 7!
May 2 = Two meals of 6 each today. Added in some refried beans and avacado!
May 3 = 11, in some combination.
May 4 = 6 for . . . whatever meal 1AM is. 2 for dinner, since I had a guest over and had to pretend that I just happened to have taco ingredients prepared in the fridge and that I wasn't mildly competing to see how many I could eat . . .
May 5 = 7 for breakfast.
May 6 = 7 for breakfast. 6 for dinner.
May 7 = 5
May 8 = 6
May 9 = 13
May 10 = 6
May 11 = 7 (Just squeaked in before midnight. Almost went a day with no tacos! None of the game stores I went to served Tacos . . . )
May 12 = 12
May 13 = 6
May 14 = 3
May 15 = 6
May 16 = 6
May 17 = 6
May 18 = None! Haha weekends of driving places to game cuts down on taco eating. And I left all my ingredients at my workplace! Oops . . .
May 19 = 5
May 20 = 10
May 21 = 6
May 22 = 5
May 23 = 5
May 24 = 5
May 25 = 12
May 26 = 3
May 27 = 6
May 28 = 6
May 29 = 12
May 30 = Zero--- got stuck at work and was way too tired to eat.
May 31 = 6

Total to date = 215! or 209. I get different numbers everytime I count.

May 1 = 3 tacos
May 2 = 2 tacos
May 3 = 0
May 4 = 0
May 5 = 0
May 6 = 3 tacos - back on the board!
May 7 = 0
May 8 = 3 tacos, last minute kickstarter prep
May 9 = 0 tacos, but kickstarted!
May 10 = 3 tacos
May 11 = 0
May 12 = 0
May 13 = 0
May 14 = 0 - what wasteful slackers we are. we're throwing food instead of eating it!
May 15 = 0
May 16 = 3 tacos
May 17 = 0
May 18 = 0 fajitas for dinner. Almost tacos...
May 19 = 0 (uh oh, need to catch up!)
May 20 = 0
May 21 = 0
May 22 = 0
May 23 = 3 We're going to need a comeback! But hey, the game is 90% funded!
May 24 = 0. So, 20 tacos in 24 days - ok, some work to do!
May 25 = 0, So, 12K in funding after 15 days, so now at least we have taco money! (Thanks!)
May 26 = 0
May 27 = 0
May 28 = 7! A serious amount of tacos coming tonight, and homemade!
May 29 = 0
May 30 = 0
May 31 = 4 (Made it!)

For each day in May, also a fun fact about our new card game or something else random.

#1) No tacos in the game. Thought about it - but never made the cut. But we do have a "baby bean burrito" you can throw
#2) the game features foods and toppings you can add to an attack.
#3) Obese Denise loves tacos. Then again, she'll eat anything.
#4) Suzy Floozy loves tacos too.
#5) Designing a game is much more fun than prepping a KS video, just FYI
#6) Condition cards like "soggy" or "pickled" add to food in the game.
#7) Every character starts with 3 standard actions. ("Pick Choice, "Throw" and "Duck".
#8) Every character gets 1 special action to start, like "Eat", "Mock" "Pitch", "Boast", "Spin" and others.
#9) Whew, launched a food fight game.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/825386399/what-the-food-...
#10) There is a belch action in the game. Not a bad strategy.
#11) Brainy Janey is one of our characters. Her power: outsmart
#12) Then there's Wayne Pain. A skill he excels at: shove
#13) 50% funded! woo hoo!
#14) Another fun action you can learn: lob. it takes care of those folks ducking AND - splatter damage!
#15) there are global event cards that change up the game, keeping it varied each time.
#16) The nice 'ol lunch lady gives everyone a free card! (more if you're picking up food already).
#17) If you're behind in the fight (like we are in this taco contest), you can always go for a super combo. It's effective AND reduces humiliation points
#18) The school nurse can help reduce humiliation damage as well
#19) Nobody likes Clark Narc really. Does he care? Nah...
#20) The ice cream social event is like playing a game of werewolf.
#21) Smug Doug can throw faster than you can duck. Watch out!
#22) Did we mention you can play a zombie in a food fight?
#23) The (salsa?) shark is the most elusive creature in the game.
#24) Demos of the game today at Strategicon - When the "half eaten cheeseburger" came up, it actually reminded someone they had a half eaten cheeseburger in their backpack!
#25) More Demos of the game, over 20 players, some repeat food fighters. Oh yeah, and we funded! WOOT! http://kck.st/131I6v5
#26) Third day of Strategicon demos for "What the Food?!" A lot of laughs over the combos and characters. Thanks for playing!
#27) Happy Memorial Day!
#28) Wayne Pain likes to shove, and he's found his spot in the deck now! Let's hope he doesn't find us when we're holding a handful of tacos, trying to finish this contest!
#29) Hippi Pippi's action is recycle. She'd be a fan of using the lefttover taco meat to make some more tomorrow.
#30) Tricky Ricky likes to prank people, and splatter their own food on themselves. I'm holding a few tacos, hopefully he doesn't see me.
#31) The Mascot in the game is a guy in a bee costume. His action is to cheer people on. He can cheer for this post - we finished the contest with 31 tacos eaten AND we funded a game at the same time! YAY!

11 homemade tacos. highlights: uber delicious homemade shells and fresh avocado

Oh, I'll jump into this too.

Although... my doc advises me to watch CH3CH2OH* intake, and as I do love a good tequila with Mexican food... We'll see what happens.

Perhaps Herr Hack will match the challenge with LotSM.

May 1 = 2 chicken tacos, homemade. Tequila = 0
May 2 = 1 homemade soft taco: chopped Italian sausage, white beans, tomatoes, lettuce and Parmesan Tequila = 0
May 3 = 1 homemade chicken soft taco. Wine = 3
May 4 = 0 Uh oh, loosing steam...?
May 5 = 0* None as of lunch, and soon to head out on travel... however there is hope as it is Cinco de Mayo. Will be a few days before another update.
May 6 = 0 Didn't make good on 5 de May, either... despite being in Houston!
May 7 = 0
May 8 = 0
May 9 = 0 shake Back from travel, and falling seriously behind! Not counting wine / tequila unless had with tacos...
May 10 = 0 Pizza night again... nada!
May 11 = 0 Zilch! Perhaps can stock up on fixings tomorrow.
May 12 = 2 homemade chicken soft tacos. Back in it!
May 13 = 0 Whoops!
May 14 = 0 D'oh! cry
May 15 = 0 Shame, shame. But I see fish tacos may be on the menu tomorrow.
May 16 = 4 No fish, but beef from Carl's. Not the greatest, but... still in it.
May 17 = 0 Pizza night, couldn't resist! Perhaps breakfast tacos tomorrow...
May 18 = 1 for breakfast
May 19 = Another 1 for breakfast, same Quesadillas for dinner... so close shake
May 20 = 0 tsk, tsk. Airborne, no tacos.
May 21 = 0 Dinner across the river in Boston at Deuxave... but no tacos!
May 22 = 0 I opted for Legal Sea Foods just down from Kendall Square... yes, I walked right by the Chipolte's!
May 23 = 0 Back in CA, no joy. There was supposed to be a taco truck at the school open house last night, but it didn't show! cry
May 24 = 0 Ain't gonna happen today. However, fixings for steak and chicken tacos have been procured! And more wine!
May 25 = 0 Had steak and chicken on off the grill, but no tacos. Too much wine... 6+ glasses and then several rounds of port. gulp But got in some good games of Alhambra, Catan and Naval War.
May 26 = 0 Recovering from Saturday... shake
May 27 = 1 sliced turkey soft taco for lunch! Plus some wine (3). And... TACO NIGHT IN PREP! UPDATE: 6 down! UPDATE #2: Make that 9! A taco ace + 4 in one evening, finally! devil
May 28 = 3 more spicy ground beef (leftover filling from last night), plus 2 more turkey tacos
May 29 = 2 grilled steak tacos (probably could have made 3, these were stuffed) My first and probably last BGG food challenge, but, high odds of making it!
May 30 = 3 steak tacos from Carl's... meh, but made it!
May 31 = 0 - pizza night!


Campaign Totals:

Tacos = 32 ... made it!

and

Tequila w/tacos = 0
Wine w/tacos = 6
Manhattans (that's right) w/tacos = 6

-Jim

*How embarrassing to get that imprecise the first time... C2H6O, really now...

Okay, okay! You didn't have to twist my arm! I'm in!

I'm semi-retired from food challenges, but this one seems doable without gaining 10 pounds.

Ironically, I ate about 10 tacos in the last week of April.

May 1 = 5 (At #5, I started questioning whether this was a good idea.)
May 2 = 3
May 3 = 5 (I realized I'll have to eat a lot now before I lose steam later.)
May 4 = 0
May 5 = 3 (the first homemade ones for the month - turkey with salsa con queso in blue corn shells)
May 6 = 5 (Okay, I to need to space out the last 10 a bit. Too much of a good thing...)
May 7 = 1 (and also a burrito)
May 8 = 1 (and also a burrito)
May 9 = 3
May 10 = 0
May 11 = 0
May 12 = 0
May 13 = 0
May 14 = 0 (at a work conference)
May 15 = 0 (at a work conference)
May 16 = 5 (ended the drought and reached 31!)
May 17 = 0
May 18 = 0
May 19 = 0
May 20 = 3
May 21 = 0
May 22 = 3
May 23 = 6 (homemade tacos with ground chicken)
May 24 = 0
May 25 = 0
May 26 = 0
May 27 = 0
May 28 = 0
May 29 = 0
May 30 = 0 (Just coasting into the finish now.)
May 31 = 0

Total to date = 43

May 11 = 2 homemade chicken/steak tacos
May 12 = 2 homemade chicken/steak tacos
May 13 = kinda tired of taco leftovers
May 14 = 2 Fito's #3 trompo tacos

I won't be able to eat at least one a day this month with my crazy work schedule, but I know I can down 31 tacos in a month. I already owned mb, and only Pizza from Zachary's in the Bay Area tops my list of favorite foods besides tacos.

Note: From my reading of the "rules" it appears I just need to eat 31 tacos over the month, and don't have to eat at least one a day.
