National Taco Day

Tacos are one of the most popular foods in the United States. How popular? A recent Harris Poll asked people which food they would want to eat for the rest of their lives. And you guessed it—tacos made it into the Top 5 (#4, after pizza, steak, and burgers).

No one can say for certain when and where tacos originated but we know that they looked and tasted a bit different from the tacos we know and love today. As early as the 1880s tacos were being sold out of carts by Mexican immigrants who arrived in the southwestern United States and were devoured by Americans who were interested in the new spices and tastes. By 1920, the recipes were adapted to appeal more to the American palate with ingredients like ground beef, chicken and cheddar cheese.
