Taco Experiment No Gadgets YouTube Challenge [Video]

Our Usual Tacos + Chipotles = Experiment!

So I was going to film our taco night just for fun. And to be honest, to be able to edit a simple video in my new Final Cut Pro X software.

Then along comes YouTube guy Keith Bettag on YouTube issuing a challenge to all to cook with no gadgets and create a taco experiment!

Ok, so I think we met the criteria. 1) No gadgets except for a bamboo spatula and our All Clad sauté pan. 2) I’ve been wanting to experiment by adding Chipotles in Adobo for the longest time. 3) That didn’t happen. 🙁

What DID happen is we had fun and the results are in our latest video below! Hope you enjoy it.

I’m really trying to build up my YouTube subscribers. My goal is to get to 1000 subscribers, and hopefully you can help! I only need a little more that 300 of you!

How to make a Paloma Cocktail

The Paloma Cocktail

Ask anyone who knows (in other words not you or me) what the most popular cocktail in Mexico is and you will probably get “Margarita” as the answer.

Wrong!

It’s the Paloma. The Paloma Cocktail is the most popular cocktail in Mexico. Source: The Internet

Made simply of tequila, lime juice, salt, and grapefruit soda… it’s a sipping drink that I personally have trouble with… well, sipping. Both refreshing and delicious, it’s hard for me to just sip it.

Here’s a short video of me making the Paloma cocktail:

See? Easy peasy to make. Easy peasy to drink.

No wonder it’s so popular! LOL.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve made one, like it or just whatever you think.

Cooking Mexican Pork Chorizo

Mexican Pork Chorizo is a raw product that must be cooked.

Unlike it’s Spanish counterpart that is a cured sausage similar to a salami that can be sliced and eaten right away, Mexican Chorizo must be cooked. It usually comes packed in a plastic sleeve that you would discard.

Preheat a skillet on medium-high, turn out the chorizo onto it and cook away.

Dry rubbed chicken tenders on the Smokey Joe with Rayz Jerk and Spice Cave Wind rubs

Grilled chicken tenders with dry rubs are one of my favorite ways to play with new rubs and seasonings.
Today we’re using Rayz Hot Dry Rub (jerk style) and Spice Cave’s Wind rub.

Rayz Hot Dry Rub and Spice Cave Wind seasoning

I use a heavy hand when applying rubs to my meats – much to the chagrin of Marilyn.

But I will admit at times I do go a little overboard. But in this case, I think the rubs really shined.

Please enjoy the video, and we would love it if you would subscribe to our YouTube channel for more goodness!
