Netflix is launching a new documentary series about tacos

We are SO here for this.

Netflix is launching a new documentary series about tacos - and that's our weekend sorted.


Yes, that right: Las Crónicas del Taco, aka The Taco Chronicles, lands on Netflix on July 12 - so it's the perfect weekend watch.

The docu-series will look at six different kinds of Mexican tacos like shepherd, carnitas, basket, roast meat, barbecue, and stew, as well as the areas they are originally from.

The series description reads:

"Many of the most popular taco styles have long, rich, little-known histories. Explore some of them in this eye-opening, mouth-watering food adventure."

You can check out the trailer below.

Associate producer and taco scout Javier Cabral took to Instagram earlier this week to celebrate the docuseries' impending release.


He said:

"For all of you who have been following along my taco carnage in Mexico over the last year, this is why: I am extremely excited to announce that I am an Associate Producer and taco scout for Las Crónicas del Taco, the first ever @netflix Original documentary series focused entirely on tacos and the hardworking taqueros who make it.

"It is finally premiering this Friday and it would mean a lot if you all can watch the hell out of it, give it a thumbs up, tell your friends and family about it, and post on social media to flex our taco power.

"I recommend watching it as is in Español with subtitles so you can perfect your taco-ordering Spanish! #tacosforpablo."
