CHAVERES, Texas — A local store is selling the latest in the “canned meat” craze, and it’s selling it in a way that’s less likely to cause any allergic reactions.
The chavista-inspired food was spotted at a Tex-Mex restaurant on Tuesday, and the owners of the store said it was the first time they’ve seen it in years.
The chain of restaurants in Texas has been serving up canned chavas since the early 2000s.
But this latest version is a bit different.
They have added a side of chicken, lettuce and tomato.
It’s called chavitos, and there’s been a lot of talk about whether or not it can be a health issue.
We wanted to be sure we were on the same page and we want to make sure it’s safe for everyone who is buying it, said Chavista manager Luis Hernandez.
There are some health concerns, said one local chavilla who is allergic to peanuts.
The chicken and vegetables are a bit bland.
And I’m not sure if it’s really healthy for you, he said.
It could also cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to the meat, such as people who have celiac disease or are sensitive at all to peanuts, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The food is also more expensive than the ones sold in stores, but the owners said they’re willing to pay extra to sell the food in bulk.
The owners said there’s no way to know how many people are buying it and that they’d love to get feedback from customers.
The chavistas said they don’t want to be the next “grocery store,” but they’d like to be able to offer some kind of alternative to the chains that are trying to sell it, such in terms of healthy options.
