    love your channel dude, but the "chorizo con papas" its not like that, its a quick dish for breakfast tacos, just fry the chorizo in low fire so it sweat a lot of the fat, then fry the potatoes in that. some people add a bit of extra oil in that stage so its not very "dry". Also they are better in wheat tortillas because it absorbs the orange oil of the chorizo, so when its lunch time at the school you unfold the tin foil wrap where your mother packed you 4 of those tacos that now are steam cooked and mildly orange...3 for you one to share...but we never shared...like smokes in a prision we trade them for something else hehe.Cheers!

    people trying to make tortillas from scratch: use a tortilla pressREAL Mexicans: making Tortillas a mano (for the uneducated, by hand)also, saw some comments about "real" or "fake" tacos and honestly, while he's not making authentic tacos, granted these are a really american way of making this shit, I gotta give the man respect for attempting this. he coulda done a lot better and done it traditional, but for what it was. i would honestly eat what he made

    If you make the argument that you should not use blue appron because it is cheaper to buy everything yourself then it is not meant for you. Blue appron is for people that are out of ideas for food or dont have the energi to go shopping.

    "Masa harina" as a mejican that made me chuckle. Just for future reference, the h is silent so it's pronounced ah-ree-na

    People getting mad about Cilantro would not survive Guadalajara. This is pretty good. Like honestly the only way to be more of a snobby purist would be to demand you make your own nixtamal corn harina lol

    I don't even know if you were going for this pun but at 1:28 when you said "presto" it sounded like "press dough" and I just about fell over in my chair
