      Taco Chronicles


      Taco Chronicles

      Watch Suadero. Episode 1 of Season 2.

      Urban and nocturnal, the suadero taco is the perfect hangover cure. It's the Mexican cousin to American beef brisket, but with more spice and bite.

      Watch Cochinita. Episode 2 of Season 2.

      The cochinita pibil is a Mayan pit-roasted pork delicacy, passed down over the centuries and preserved, even after colonization, like a sacred ritual.

      Watch Cabrito. Episode 3 of Season 2.

      The cabrito, or kid taco, springs from a goat herding tradition that can be traced to Iran and Lebanon. It's now become emblematic of northern Mexico.

      Watch American Taco. Episode 4 of Season 2.

      The American taco is, of course, an import — but much changed after assimilation! Distinguished by its hard or puffy shell, it's still delicious.

      Watch Burrito. Episode 5 of Season 2.

      The convenience of the burrito — a good-sized flour tortilla tucked in at both ends so nothing wrapped inside spills — is from Mexico's northern states.

      Watch Birria. Episode 6 of Season 2.

      To dunk or not to dunk? To spoon or not to spoon? The crucial aspect of the birria taco is its broth, a sumptuous blend of goat meat juices and spices.

      Watch Pescado. Episode 7 of Season 2.

      The best fish tacos come from the Mexican Pacific coast, with a nod to Japan for the crispy, tempura-like breading and emphasis on freshness.

      Watch Pastor. Episode 1 of Season 1.

      Savory, pork-based al pastor tacos are a street-food staple of Mexico City. But they actually have origins that stem back to ancient Asia Minor.

      Watch Carnitas. Episode 2 of Season 1.

      If you like tacos, you likely know carnitas. But did you know its roots go back to the Aztecs? Take a trip to Michoacán, the world’s carnitas capital.

      Watch Canasta. Episode 3 of Season 1.

      No matter the filling, canasta tacos are truly beloved. Get to know this street-food favorite and one of its most dynamic purveyors: Lady Basket Tacos.

      Watch Asada. Episode 4 of Season 1.

      From Tijuana to Hermosillo to Sonora to Downtown LA, carne asada reigns supreme. But the most flavorful meat is nothing without the perfect tortilla.

      Watch Barbacoa. Episode 5 of Season 1.

      Every time barbacoa is prepared, it starts in the same place: a big hole in the ground. It doesn’t get much more humble -- or delicious -- than that.

      Watch Guisado. Episode 6 of Season 1.

      With guisados tacos, it’s not just the meat -- it’s the stew. We visit with some of the most notable "stew taco" cooks in both Mexico and Los Angeles.
