Jesus Appears in Man's Taco in Another Food Miracle

NOT the Jesus taco
80-year-old Edward Garza was just expecting a breakfast taco when he opened a foil-wrapped package at his senior center in Texas. But what he got instead looked -- to him -- like an image of his Lord and Savior Jesus burned into the tortilla. He spent about five minutes gazing at his miraculous taco, witnessing its holy manifestation.

Jesus taco! It doesn't happen every day. But for Angie Rodriguez, the director of the senior daycare, it was a reassuring sign from above. She says she'd been struggling through some personal challenges and had just prayed the night before for a sign from God. Talk about comfort food!

I'll respect Angie and Edward's right to see what they want to see, but personally I think the image looks more like Bob Marley. Anyway, I can think of other comforting images I'd like to see in my food.

    The Dalai Lama in my grilled tofu! What a profound message of peace that would be. I know he's still alive but I think if I try hard enough I might be able to envision his image anyway.

  • Oprah in My Okra

    Oprah in my okra -- come on, you know this needs to happen! I seriously hear her voice every time I eat okra, which is exactly never. But if I DID eat okra I'd surely hear it tell me, "Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself."

  • Yoda in My Yogurt

    Yoda in my yogurt! May the force be with me. If I concentrate hard enough I bet I can make this dish of yogurt levitate, too.

  • Hilary Clinton in My Mac & Cheese

    Hilary Clinton in my mac and cheese -- that would be four cheeses, please. I know I can see that golden helment in there somewhere. If you look closely, you can even see her texting!

  • Susan B. Anthony in My Brownie Sundae

    Nothing says Women's Right to Vote like a brownie sundae, am I right? Feminism is so, so delicious. Can't you see her noble visage here in the silhouette?

  • Plato in My Shawarma

    I see so much wisdom in a rotating spit of meat, don't you? I think Plato would agree. And if you squint you can kind of see him in there, too.
