FAKE NEWS! We don’t think this is how they make tacos in Baja’s Rosarito Beach. And while there may be just one pot in the headline, there is also a pan in the video. ALTERNATIVE FACTS? We also notice a distinct lack of

  • Salsa
  • Cebolla
  • Cilantro.

Ground turkey? K what? And where did the beans come from? SOMEONE ELSE’S POT?

Have your microwave send us a GIF, otherwise no dice.

Why, we asked ourselves, would these RelaxMusic people upload scores of allegedly ethnic or national background music videos to YouTube? If people play them as background audio, they will not be looking at — and clicking on — ads, so the uploaders will not make money. Is it a public service? Some kind alternative facts thing? We don’t know. On the other hand, you can enjoy two hours of uncredited, unnamed mariachi (and other Mexican) muzak right here.


Chris Donovan of FatFoodaolics shows us How to Make Corn Tortillas the Wrong Way. Huh? He explains:

Tortillas! One of my favorite foods on the planet. Nothing better then a Taco or Burrito smothered with cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, etc. One thing, I can never replicate what I get in a good Mexican restaurant with store bought corn tortillas. So I figured I give making them a try.


Gabiekook shows us how to make Korean pork belly bulgogi tacos with peanuts. But first you need to answer her question: [[우리집에왜왔니?]] 국가비의 코리안 타코편 (Why did you come to my house?) Aside from the religious issues we have regarding wheat vs corn tortillas, the marinade and saucing stuff look muy rico! Oh, and nice mustache!

Is this the worst online taqueria video of 2016? Spoiler: No tacos were filmed in the making of this O’tacos video. P.S.: It’s from France. It looks like O’tacos offers a “Philly” taco (suspiciously burrito-looking) which includes provolone cheese and grilled onions. How do they say “cheesesteak” in France?
