Authentic Mexican cuisine is very varied and includes many different recipes, but no other
type of food makes the reader think more about Mexican food... but, what can I say... stereotype put aside... Tacos do taste great! The Taco is a mexican dish that consists of a tortilla wrapped around different types of fillings, and sometimes 2 tortillas are used to double it up. It is a basic recipe and it is very easy to do, since the taco can be garnished with practically any filling
of meat and/or vegetables. The Taco is eaten directly with your hands and is usually accompanied by spicy or outright hot, red or green sauces; it also is topped by any of the infinite toppings and seasonings found in the traditional Mexican cuisine.
The tacos are sold in varied types of restaurants, from luxurious restaurants downto family taquerías, that generally are rustic places, improvised with only a few tables, while there are famous taquerías, with many places to sit down and eat.
Nowadays the taco has spread worldwide as a type of fast food. It is now easy to find in the USA or in places where large Mexican communities exist; one thing about those well-known restaurant chains who claim to make Tacos using a hard-shell tortilla shaped like
a U; in Mexico that does not actually correspond
to what a real Taco should be like, although it may come slightly close to some Tacos, the point is that in the real thing, the tortilla must not be hard; it may be crispy but never hard and crumbly. Here are
the most well known original Tacos you can try at home with easy to find ingredients, or perhaps with a quick visit to the closest latin products store.
