                        If you like tacos, you likely know carnitas. But did you know its roots go back to the Aztecs? Take a trip to Michoacán, the world’s carnitas capital.

                        Watch Canasta. Episode 3 of Season 1.

                        Every time barbacoa is prepared, it starts in the same place: a big hole in the ground. It doesn’t get much more humble -- or delicious -- than that.

                        With guisados tacos, it’s not just the meat -- it’s the stew. We visit with some of the most notable "stew taco" cooks in both Mexico and Los Angeles.
