    The production and content of this series is really great, BUT I must object to the constant use of flamenco/Spanish guitar music throughout the shots. This is not Mexican music. They are not the same and using another culture’s soundtrack gives an inaccurate narrative of the soundtrack to these people’s lives that are being featured here. Please ditch the generic flamenco and find some authentic sources of music relevant to the subject matter.

    I rarely comment on videos, but I'm left wondering how anyone voted this down. This was great. The humility with which Rick approached the task at hand, the skill with which he recreated the dish, and the overall production of the video were all a joy to watch. Loved it.

    I'd love to see Rick head south of Mexico! I've always been massively interested in the food of central America, and he seems like the perfect person to show it to us.

    When I first started watching this I thought who wants a sandwich with soggy bread that you cannot hold. I was happy to see they answered those concerns. I do think I would put the salsa inside the sandwich if I made it though. Yeah, so that is not traditional. ::shrug:: Great episode!

    As someone who was born in Guadalajara. This is the best dish the city has to offer. There isn't a boring day of eating in Guadalajara. Got excited when I was the market.

    There has been always this big debate about putting frijoles in the tortas ahogadas, most people say that adding frijolitos to the torta transform them automatically into a simple "lonche" which is just a simple torta, the true essence of the torta ahogada is without the frijoles, you can ask 10 people and half is gonna say adding frijoles is just fine and the other half is gonna get real mad about it lol

    read: “Como Ague Para Chocolate”- by Laura Esquivel! It has a bunch of prehispánic recipes and it’s a great book in general that I think you would like and help understand some of the history of Mexican gastronomy (but mostly it’s just a great novel)
