Grilled or pan-fried, cilantro almond fish is a flavorful combination for tacos and rice. Simply marinade, fry and enjoy. No need of store-bought spice mix. Taco is a Mexican dish with a fried corn or wheat tortilla, typically folded, filled with various mixtures, such as seasoned meat, beans, lettuce, and tomatoes. Traditional tacos don’t include lettuce, tomato, or shredded cheese.
National Taco day is October 4th. Early tortillas took hours to make but by the 1960s, small-scale tortilla-making machines could churn out hot, steaming tortillas every two seconds.
Where Did the Taco Come From?
The origins of the taco are really unknown. In Mexico, because in those mines the word “taco” referred to the little charges they would use to excavate the mine. These were pieces of paper that they would wrap around gunpowder and insert into the holes they carved in the rock face. One of the first types of tacos described is called tacos de minero—miner’s tacos.
