YEW! Another week, another epic taco here with the 52 Weeks of Tacos team. This week, we’re all over a South Bay classic: Tacos de Adobada (pictured above) at Tacos El Gordo in Chula Vista. No question, one of the best tacos in San Diego, the adobada is sweet and well-seasoned marinated pork — shaved off a rotating spit of meat — on a corn tortilla with chopped onions, cilantro, a mild salsa, and a creamy avocado spread. 

So good, it’s stupid.
