More Tacos Please!
I don't believe I've met anyone who doesn't like tacos. I could eat tacos everyday being there are so many variations of ingredients that are available.
According to research the origin of tacos dates back to the 18th century in Mexico. The word "taco" referred to little pieces of paper wrapped around gunpowder to be used as an explosive device placed into the walls of silver mines. Miners would use them to excavate the ore from the rock walls. Basically they are named after a stick of dynamite! You can imagine the corn tortilla like a piece of paper wrapped around some goodies. One of the first ones were known as "tacos de minero" miners tacos. When the lure of industry in Mexico City, migrant workers began using them for inexpensive breakfasts and lunches. With different cultures from around the world, especially Lebanese workers, they began to fill there corn tortillas with spit-cooked pork. By the early 1900's with the influx of Mexican migrant workers (working railroad construction and mining) tacos and tortillas made their way to the US. By 1920, the migrant workers began to advance economically while still eating traditional Mexican fare, but then began to use more beef, lettuces and cheeses. In 1954, Glen Bell created Bell's Drive In and Taco Tia in San Bernardino, California. By 1962 he opened his first Taco Bell in Downey, California serving Tay-Kohs. And so began our love for tacos.
For the plant-based eaters there are many recipes and variations of excellent tacos.
