  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hey everybody, this is Vic.

  • And today we're gonna be testing out four different

  • celebrity taco recipes to find out

  • which one is actually the best.

  • On today's line-up, we have recipes

  • from Danny Trejo, (air whoosh)

  • Aaron Sanchez, (air whoosh)

  • Eva Longoria, (air whoosh)

  • and the legendary Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.

  • I measured out all the ingredients

  • exactly as each recipe stated

  • and I got three taco lovers

  • to choose their favorite taco in a blind taste test.

  • So, which celebrity has the best taco recipe?

  • Let's find out.

  • (air whoosh)

  • First up is Danny Trejo's carnitas tacos.

  • Danny starts out by oven roasting a pork shoulder

  • for approximately three hours

  • then roughly chopping it into little bits.

  • Then he puts it in a nonstick pan,

  • patting down with a spatula

  • until we achieve a beautiful golden brown.

  • Now, it's time to build.

  • First, we throw down our tortilla, a layer of carnitas,

  • some raw onions, some pickled onion,

  • then we garnish with a little bit of cilantro

  • and there you have it, Danny Trejo's carnita tacos.

  • - Okay this my tortilla, this is something

  • that we definitely use at my household.

  • I'm excited.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - The red onions are a nice touch.

  • - Yeah, this (bleep) is fire.

  • - I love the onion, it definitely gives it a nice kick

  • to it.

  • - This is what I'm talking about.

  • This is like the tacos you got on the street

  • after you've been like drinking a few beers or something.

  • - This is definitely more like taco truck taco

  • you get the full tortilla.

  • - I see my family cook these so this is really good.

  • - It's like home basically.

  • - I give it a thumbs up, this is really good.

  • (air whoosh)

  • - Next up is Aaron Sanchez,

  • he starts off by marinating skirt steak overnight

  • then generously seasoning with salt and pepper.

  • Then, he grills the skirt steak for approximately

  • five to six minutes on each side

  • until he achieves a beautiful medium rare.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Then, he takes his skirt steak out

  • and lets rest for approximately 10 minutes.

  • Now, it's sauce time.

  • Aaron starts by baking his tomatillo sauce ingredients

  • and he throws it in a blender to combine all the ingredients

  • into a beautiful tomatillo sauce.

  • Once his steak has rested, now it's time to chop it up

  • and start building our taco.

  • He starts off with two warm tortillas

  • then he puts two to three slices of the skirt steak

  • topped with a teaspoon of the tomatillo sauce,

  • some raw onions, then garnish with some cilantro

  • and some limes.

  • And there you have it, Aaron Sanchez's carne asada tacos.

  • - So, this one looks like it's presented nicely.

  • I can definitely see the tomatillo sauce on it.

  • - And salsa verde this looks like my taco for sure.

  • - Check this one out.

  • - I like the salsa, I'd love it if it were a little spicier.

  • - The steak is really good, sauce is really good,

  • it's like coming apart a lot.

  • - The meat is nice, the steak is really good,

  • and I'd just like more cilantro and onion for sure

  • to make it a taco taco.

  • - If it was on a scale of 1 to 10,

  • I'd go with like a 5 1/2.

  • - It was a decent taco, it's not the best,

  • but it's decent.

  • (air whoosh)

  • Next up is Eva Longoria's taco recipe.

  • She starts by putting together a guacamole

  • by dicing tomatoes and avocados.

  • Then, she finely chops white onion and fresh cilantro.

  • Then, Eva grabs her guac, adds salt and lemon juice

  • and stirs gently until combined.

  • Next, she takes her steak and seasons generously

  • with chili powder and salt.

  • Then, she oils her pan and cooks the steak

  • for five to six minutes per side

  • until she gets a nice medium rare.

  • Then, she thinly cuts her steak and sets it aside.

  • Ooh that juice, though.

  • Then, interestingly, she cuts her tortillas into squares.

  • Then, she throws them on a pan and warms them up

  • until we get a nice color.

  • And now it's time to build.

  • She adds a couple of pieces of steak,

  • chunky guac, and holds it all together with a toothpick.

  • And there you have it, Eva Longoria's tacos.

  • - Okay, this is such a cute little taco.

  • - Looks like something that probably

  • get like in a nice restaurant

  • and probably charge like 20 dollars for like a little

  • piece of taco. (cash register chime)

  • - Let's give it a try,

  • but let's take this off because I'm too clumsy.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Simple ingredients but put together it's like really good.

  • - It's a great two biter taco, for sure.

  • I'd definitely ask for more.

  • - It's like a nice appetizer, toothpick through it,

  • that way everybody picks up individual taco portions,

  • it's good.

  • (air whooshing)

  • - And now the recipe you've all been waiting for,

  • Frida Kahlo's tacos.

  • She starts off by finely chopping serrano peppers

  • keeping the seeds in to make sure to bring the heat.

  • And then, Frida peels and seeds tomatoes and dices them.

  • (guitar music)

  • Then, in a nonstick pan, Frida combines butter,

  • onions, and the serrano chilies and our tomato mix.

  • Then, she lets the mixture cook for 10 minutes

  • until the tomatoes are thoroughly cooked.

  • Then, Frida adds shrimp and cooks until just heated through.

  • Frida starts your taco with a corn tortilla

  • adding the shrimp tomato chili mix on the top

  • garnish with cilantro and lime and it's ready to go.

  • - Damn, son.

  • This one looks good.

  • - It has some chili peppers in there.

  • I'm expecting a little bit of heat.

  • - I would like it if it had two tortillas for sure

  • because it's hard to pick up, but...

  • - Got a little bit of sweetness to it.

  • - I love that it's spicy.

  • It definitely has jalapenos, I can feel it.

  • - Looking at the shrimp, they are nice sized shrimp.

  • I would definitely say it's like the higher end

  • range restaurant.

  • - Yeah, I can have three of these, for sure.

  • It's a go. (giggles)

  • - It's all right.

  • (air whoosh)

  • - Which celebrity has the best tacos?

  • Time to pick our winner.

  • - Out of the four celebrity tacos,

  • my favorite probably has to be

  • the one with the purple onions.

  • The onions on this look like they're pickled really good.

  • If he didn't cook it with a machete

  • then that (bleep) ain't right.

  • - Out of these four celebrity recipes,

  • I'm going with the steak,

  • nicely done, perfect toppings on it

  • and it just tasted the best.

  • It does make sense.

  • I think she's done other things with food.

  • - Out of the four celebrity tacos,

  • my favorite one has to be the one with the toothpick

  • because it had the avocado, a small portion of the meat,

  • and it was just a two biter

  • that I can definitely not feel guilty of grabbing 10

  • or five whatever it is. (giggles)

  • Who is it?

  • Oh, okay.

  • (violin music)

  • - And there you have it, Eva Longoria has the best tacos.

  • Which recipes should we try next?

  • Leave a comment below.
