Topopo Salad

In college I was a line cook at a mexican restaurant called El Azteco in east lansing. While Scott was making like, 8 jillian dollars in tips over at the bar Spiral shaking his twink ass around, I was schlepping beans. The owner of El ASS was not only (allegedly) a hard core drug addict (oh the good times when he'd rush in all coked up and screaming) but also quite the inventor. What did he invent? Why, the BEAN GUN. It makes taco bell caulking system look positively primitive. It is a foot pedal controlled machine that shoots hot frijoles out at high speed. I know! So awsome right?
One of the most famous dishes was called the Topopo Salad which consisted of a layer of tortilla chips, beans from the bean gun, homeade quacamole, melted cheese, a huge heaping of a vinegret salad with peas, and all topped off with parmesan. "Wow", you're saying, "did that taste like dirty ass?" no, dear reader, it was heaven sent.
Interestingly, said dish was the catalyst of said bean shooter-- the owner needed a quick way to get an even layer of beans on the tricky chips.
here is the (allededly) drug addled owner with the Topoopoo.

Seriously, it was good. Noah, you forgot that it also has chicken on it.

I will show you my bean gun for 5 bucks.

And it tastes even better followed by some skeetball at Pinball Petes.
