Matt Damon Describes His Ideal Taco On Reddit, And It's Amazing
Finally, some important news!
Thanks to a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session on July 19, we are now privy to a slew of new, fascinating information about Matt Damon, spanning from his bromance with Ben Affleck to his favorite type of taco.
After Damon answered a variety of non-taco related queries, one Reddit user finally got down to business, asking the 45-year-old actor: “What are the ingredients of your ideal taco?”
And Damon delivered:
The ingredients of my ideal taco, oh my god. Fantastic question. My ideal taco is actually the taco I'm not supposed to have which is the taco we have on taco night at my house. It's the crunchy corn shell with the good meat, just ground beef in there. It's all about the layering. The meats gotta be hot, and the cheese goes on first so that it melts. And then you're gonna get in there with a little bit of tomato and lettuce but not too much cause it's not a salad, it's a taco, and then you're gonna throw some avocado on top and some sour cream and then a bunch of cholula. I don't know if you know what cholula hot sauce is but it's the best. Throw a bunch of cholula on there, maybe squeeze some lime on top, and go to town.
Upon reading his response, fans flocked to the AMA to shower Damon with support on his answer.
“Now that's how you answer a question about tacos,” one Redditor wrote.
“Holy taco,” responded another. “Matt Damon's AMA is the best in awhile....a huge paragraph just on he likes his f******* tacos. I love this guy.”
“Your comment on tacos not being salads has likely impacted me more than anything else in the past decade,” lauded another user, a sentiment I am inclined to agree with.
As an added bonus, Damon also decided to give his two cents over the hotly contested debate: Are hot dogs really hot dogs, or are they secretly just sandwiches?
"I've never considered a hot dog a sandwich because a hot dog is a hot dog,” he wrote. “I mean technically it comes between 2 pieces of bread or one fold it into two, so I guess you can classify it as a sandwich. Then what would you call it, a hot dog sandwich? That's like a hat on a hat so let's just keep it as a hot dog.”
Touche, Matt Damon.
