Stand-up comedian, television and film actor, talk show host and author George Lopez, whose passion for authentic Mexican food and beer encouraged him to develop a restaurant brand, George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen in 2017, is expanding his footprint in the food and beverage industry with the introduction of George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen Carne Asada and Pollo Asado in grocery stores. The launch coincides with the release of George Lopez Brewing Company’s first four Ta Loco Cervezas.
With the Covid-19 pandemic making it impossible to visit George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen restaurants, Lopez and his team wanted to make Chingon Kitchen meat products and Ta Loco Cervezas available for people to enjoy at home.
Inspired by family recipes, George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen Carne Asada and Pollo Asado is fresh, never frozen, and produced in the United States. To kick things off, the products will be available in two-pound vacuum sealed packages in the meat departments exclusively at Food4Less stores in Southern California beginning February 3. The premium midwestern beef and all-natural chicken is marinated in fresh orange juice with onion, garlic, lemon peel and a hint of grapefruit, creating a great taste for year-round grilling and perfect for tacos, salads, or just by themselves.
“Sharing my grandmother’s recipes at George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen restaurants has been a dream come true, and for people to be able to pick up the Carne Asada and Pollo Asado at Food4Less to enjoy at home, well, that is just bad ass,” said Lopez.
George Lopez joined forces with restaurant industry entrepreneur and hotelier Michael Zislis (Zislis Group) in 2017 to launch the George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen brand with the opening of George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen restaurant at San Manuel Casino in Highland, California. Today, there are three George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen restaurants in Southern California and Arizona.
Also the release of his first four Ta Loco Cervezas from George Lopez Brewing Co. Both the quality packaged meat products and beer will initially be available at Food4Less stores in Southern California, with plans for broader distribution in the near future.
George loves to cook, especially his family recipes! He is a foodie and has a passion for brewing great Mexican inspired beer! With touring on hold, he has been very busy! And, the results are Chingon (bad ass!)
