Taco Tuesday Header

If you are lucky enough to live in a city that celebrates Taco Tuesday then muy bien (very good)! Tuesday is the day when tacos are a celebrated street food that just about everyone likes. From LA to New York, taco Tuesdays boast cheap tacos like “two-fers” and “trios” -- great deals on multiple taco buys. Interestingly enough, the term Taco Tuesday dates back to the ‘70s and is trademarked by a mid-western taco chain, Taco Johns that’s based in Wyoming. We think tacos are right for any day of the week and we’ve got a great recipe to make them at home whenever you like.

Do you like corn or flour tortillas?

This delicious street food usually consists of a shell (usually a tortilla), fillings like meat, cheese, even potatoes, and some type of salsa that is often spicy because of added chiles. Corn tortillas are the usual outside of a taco but flour tortillas can be used too. Tacos can be soft like when the tortilla is lightly grilled or deep fried for a crunchy taco.

The origin of tacos is actually unknown. Dating back to the 18th century, it is thought that tacos were the fare of Mexican silver miners. The miners made little packets of gunpowder wrapped in paper -- known as a “taco” translated to plug or wad --  to make small explosions for excavating. The food made its appearance in the early 1900s when Mexican migrants arrived in the US.
