Have you ever wondered where the dish Chicken Chihuahua gets its name? No, no little dogs are harmed in the preparation of this tasty meal at Tamaleria Lupitas. The dish is named after the state of Chihuahua in Northern Mexico. The dog breed is named for the same region; hence the connection. The meal consists of a chicken breast topped with chorizo (spicy sausage), with no other kinds of meat included.
With that potential confusion cleared up, you can try Chicken Chihuahua or Chicken Monterrey on the cheap for the next couple of days. Through Saturday, October 26, Tamaleria Lupitas will sell you either of these chicken dinners for just $6. The restaurant is located at 8335 N. Michigan Road on the north side of Indy.
