Did you get to watch Mexican food guru and best-selling author Gustavo Arellano on ‘Chelsea Lately’ last night? 

Arellano, presented himself to the funny late-night host and her Mexican side kick Chuy in front of a buffet table of iconic Mexican food.  He started his visit with a lot of Spanish whereby the hostess told him ‘English Por Favor’.

Arellano, who pens the column ‘Ask a Mexican’ and is editor of OC Weekly, told the audience of the migration and history of Mexican food from the Margarita to the Nachos to the latest Mexican food craze the bacon wrapped hot dog.

All these insights are contained in his book ‘Taco U.S.A.’, which is more of a history book than a cook book - a fact lost on the hostess.  The fact that Gustavo did not cook all the Mexican treats was a surprise to Chelsea probably thinking Arellano is a chef – clearly she needs to read the book, its a treat.
