Tips & Notes
Probably the most common among Mexican foods is the Taco. It is a corn or flour tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. The filling may include beef, mutton or shellfish and often has salsa, vegetables and cheeses for added variety.
The dish was served early on by the Aztecs and only the Spanish gave its name which actually means “light snack”. It used to be that the Mexican women served this as a practical way of serving food to husbands and guests.
The taco as we know it today is the result of an evolution from the simple tortilla filled with meat. It gained popularity that it has become the most known and well-loved Mexican food of all time.
Tacos can either have soft shells or hard shells, both have fillings of meat (or beans), vegetables and cheese.
