I second Neil's suggestion of El Vaquero...


1. Avocado's Number

2. Guaca-Mole

3. The mass of a hard taco shell is approximately 12 grams

4. Mere months after the death of Avogadro, the Republican Party's first
presidential nominee, John C. Frémont, was defeated by James Buchanan. He
lost in some measure due to the splitting of the vote by ex-president
Millard Fillmore representing the "American Party", and the Democratic
Party's warnings that electing Frémont would result in civil war.

The American Party, also known as the "Know Nothings", according to
Wikipedia, "arose in response to an influx of migrants and promised to
"purify" American politics by limiting or ending the influence of Irish
Catholics and other immigrants, thus reflecting nativist and anti-Catholic
sentiment. It was empowered by popular fears that the country was being
overwhelmed by German and Irish Catholic immigrants, whom they saw as
hostile to Republican values and as being controlled by the Pope. Mainly
active from 1854 to 1856, the movement strove to curb immigration and
naturalization but met with little success. Membership was limited to
Protestant men. There were few prominent leaders, and the largely
middle-class membership was divided over the issue of slavery."

5. "Taco Tuesday" has the same number of syllables as "Avogadro" (yes, even
though lunch is on a Monday)

6. Refried beans give many people gas
