Insane Sesos Tacos! A Video Taco Run From Hell. Carnitas Michoacanas. Reseda, CA.
This is a brain. This is a brain cradled by a corn tortilla and topped with salsa verde, diced onions and cilantro. This is a video showcasing a trio of very challenging tacos: birria (goat stew), "tripa" (intestines) and sesos (brain). The "tripa" taco in the video isn't tripe or cow stomach as the name suggests; it's actually crispy intestines—skunky and delicious.
Normally I'd throw in a lengua or tongue taco as well, but I was watching my caloric intake that particular day. After all, video adds an extra ten pounds. I didn't need the lengua taco poundage on top of that.
Thanks to Eric Alba for shooting this video. Oh, Alba ordered a couple of carne asadas and a carnitas, in case you were wondering. What a wuss.
