“I felt like we were back in Michoacan.”

Munchies’ “Chef’s Night Out” series usually features some of the most respected chefs in the food game. They range from classically trained fine dining chefs to self-taught chefs who have established themselves in their communities. If you read the comments they get on YouTube, nearly every chef is described as a “hipster.”

In this installment of “Chef’s Night Out,” there are no hipsters to be found. Instead, they follow Marcos Carbajal of Carnitas Uruapan, a staple in Chicago’s Latin-heavy Pilsen neighborhood. After working in finance for several years, Carbajal realized how important his father’s carnitas restaurant was to the neighborhood, so ditched his business suits for an apron and began working with his dad.

The episode features the usual drunken restaurant-hopping, but it also tells the powerful immigrant story of Inocencio Carbajal, who arrived in the U.S. in 1969 and sold some of his most prized possessions in order to raise money for his carnitas business. Now, his restaurant is one of the most beloved spots in Pilsen.

Have you ever mixed your Tapatío hot sauce with your sour cream for tacos or tortilla chips? Well, now Tapatío wants to take that extra step out of your life. That’s right. Tapatío announced on social media that they will be selling Tapatío-infused sour cream at El Super markets.

According to Tapatío’s social media pages, El Super markets are now carrying Tapatío Sour Cream Dips in three flavors.

People can choose between Tapatío, Chipotle, or Jalapeño.

You’re probably saying, “But, like, we’ve already been doing this.”

And that’s a totally fair critique. It’s always been easy to take your sour cream and add some Tapatío to it. However, the announcement has been met with much excitement because it makes it easier for you to get that creamy, spicy goodness without the work or buying two products. #LazinessAlwaysWin

People can’t wait to try it out, even if it means painful bowel movements.

Listen up, Tapatío. These are ideas you should definitely be considering.

But, the most common sentiment about the sour cream dips is that people no longer have to make their own.
