After immersing himself in classic Mexican cuisine, chef Alex Stupak (Empellón, NYC), has emerged as the face of modern Mexican food in New York City. As part of Eater's Savvy series, Stupak breaks down the elements of a killer taco, from handmade tortillas, to substantial filling, to salsas, to aromatics, and demonstrates how easy it is to take tacos at home to the next level. Simplicity is key. Watch and learn a few tricks — like how to achieve the perfect texture in guacamole or how to keep tortillas warm and pliable — that will make tacos at home taste as good as any taquero's.
