>> you're cooking for three kids.

>> emma jackson and carson .

>> right. jackson is here --

>> he knows not to touch the burner.

>> we're listening to music, we are making drinks.

>> we toast them and it helps with the texture of the taco.

>> what do you like? flour or corn.

>> i like corn.

>> i'm a flour girl.

>> corn is good because you can taste the ingredients together.

>> i like flour because it's a bigger tortilla and i'm a bigger pig. we shred the chicken and rehydrate it in the juices at the bottom of the pot. cheese, cilantro, tomato and roasted garlic. don't be afraid to put gloves in your taco. it all cancels each other out.
