What is Taco?

Taco is a Mexican name meaning sandwich. A taco is, therefore, a kind of tortilla stuffed with the filling of different foods such as beef, pork, chicken, seafood, veggies, and cheese. It is then served with salsa, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro or onions to garnish. This finger delicacy is eaten by millions of people worldwide who love fast food.

Which are the Different Kinds of Taco?

In Mexico, tacos are merely fresh tortillas. However, in the United States, there are different kinds of tacos. These include hard-shelled tacos often made of deep-fried tortillas, fried tacos made of fried tortillas stuffed with filling and the tacodillas which have cheese stuffed between two tortillas and then topped with a filling.

History of National Taco Day

The origin of National Taco Day is not known. However, taco itself has a rich history. Taco is a traditional Mexican dish made using corn or wheat tortilla then folded around some filling.

Tacos date back during the arrival of Europeans in Mexico. Anthropological evidence showed that tacos were created as early as the 16th century by the inhabitants of Mexico. Bernardino de Sahagun documented more evidence in his 1529 book titled ‘General History of the Things of New Spain.’ In the book, he detailed the diet of the native Mexicans which included tortillas, corn, chilies, and tamales. These people used flat corn bread called tlaxcalli and filled it with various fillings among them small fish and live insects.

Later in the 19th and 20th centuries, Mexican immigrants introduced the taco concept to the United States. During the 1920s, Mexican restaurants began mushrooming all over the US, with each introducing a different version of tacos.

Today, over 5 billion tacos are consumed in the US every year. The number includes tacos sold in Mexican restaurants, homemade tacos and those purchased at food chains mostly through taco Tuesday deals and del taco taco Tuesday every week.
