The "salchipapa" phenomenon

I had never heard before about the "salchipapa" until some of my pupils in 3D told me about it. They made me watch the video at the end of the lesson one day and all I could do was wonder why this nice guy in the video had become so popular. I still don't know why, probably because I´m a grown up and my taste in humour is pretty different!! Anyway, at least now I know what a "salchipapa" is and my knowledge of the world around has become wider...;-)

A salchipapa or salchipapas is a fast food dish commonly consumed as street food throughout Latin America. The dish's name is a portmanteau of the Spanish words "salchicha" (sausage) and "papa" (potato). Salchipapas typically consist of thinly sliced pan-fried beef sausages and French fries, mixed together with a savory coleslaw on the side. The dish is served with different sauces, such as ketchup and mayonnaise, along with aji or chili peppers. Sometimes a fried egg or cheese is added on top, and it could also come with tomato and lettuce. It is occasionally garnished with oregano.
