But have you ever wondered about the history behind that gorgeous recipe? Today, let’s talk about the Mexican beauty, the Tacos!
Nowadays, tacos are popular all over the world but their origin is in Mexico. Nearly 100 years ago the ancient Mexicans found this recipe by using a little bit different ingredients. They have used corn tortillas and filled them with fish or cooked organs. Over time it became their traditional meal and spread all over the world.
Now let’s explain the name “Taco”. It comes from the 18th century of Mexico. Those days, gunpowder was covered in a paper called “taquito” and inserted into stones before being shot. Taco was a meal of the working class. And everyone was calling it “tacos de minero“, which means “miner’s tacos”.
1905 was the first time that the taco was discovered by the Americans. Mexican workers migrated to America and brought the taco recipe with them. American workers tried the tacos and started to spread them quickly. Right after, America started to export the tacos and add the recipe to their restaurant menus. The first restaurant chain appeared in Los Angeles and was run by a woman called “chili queens”.
