Austin mayor Steve Adler has not been afraid to take his civic duties beyond the day-to-day at city hall. (He even declared ‘taco war’ on San Antonio last year.) In one of his latest expressions of apolitical interests, Adler joins the host of I Love Queso So Much to breakdown his thoughts on the queso at Pelon’s and queso in general.

In the podcast, the mayor admits to getting fooled by local friends by eating a pepper when he first visited Austin. While he does say he likes the Pelon queso, he puts on his political act and says it is hard for him to “make qualitative comparisons.”

“I am the mayor of all quesos in Austin,” Adler said.
