The United Tacos Of America Begins Here In Houston

Look at this!

Remember, last year, when I blogged about THESE TWO GUYS and their mission to feature all the great Tacos of Texas?

Here's a clip of what it looked like...

Now, Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece have their own taco show on TV!

It's called United Tacos Of America on El Rey Network.

Mando & Jarod will be driving all across the country to find all the best tacos.

The show debuts a week from today (October 15th) at 9:00pm.

The first season consists of eight 30-minute episodes and their first stop is Houston!

Here's more from the press release:

Tacos come in all shapes, sizes, colors and makes. After exploring the tacos in their home state of Texas, Rayo and Neece wrote two successful bestselling books, Austin Breakfast Tacos and The Tacos of Texas. For their next adventure, they wanted to embark on a journey across the U.S. to discover regional variations of the taco. “United Tacos of America” follows the taco gurus on a cross-country road trip to discover new flavors and cultures that continue to define modern America.

"I'm excited to explore and learn from taqueros and tortilleras, Abuelas y Tios and home cooks, rancheros and chefs that infuse their culture, family and traditions through the love of tacos,” said co-host Mando Rayo. “This journey will take us behind the scenes of cocinas across the U.S. and showcase this rich food culture and how tacos and Mexican food is and has always been part of the American experience."

“Good food, especially tacos, brings people of all nationalities together,” said Robert Rodriguez, Head of El Rey Network. “As a foodie myself I can’t be more excited that Mando and Jarod’s show ‘United Tacos of America’ will showcase the love we all share for Mexican food across this country. We are proud that El Rey Network is continuing its mission of highlighting the authentic and positive stories our culture brings to this amazing nation.”
