The Takeout and Tequila Cazadores are collaborating on a taco road trip across America this summer. The Tortilla Awards are a tour through three of the country’s greatest food towns: Los Angeles, Chicago, and Austin. Here’s how it works: In each city, we scoured high and low for a half dozen of the most beloved taquerias. We invited them to cook in a one-night event where tacos are served and our friends at Tequila Cazadores provided the icy cold beverages. In each city, chef and television personality Aarón Sánchez leads a panel of esteemed judges to choose their favorite taco and tortilla maker. The Takeout then visits the restaurants of the newly crowned winners to find out their secrets, and how the home cook can replicate their award-winning tacos in their kitchen. First up: We visited sunny Los Angeles for part one of The Tortilla Awards. Who will win?
