Did you know-
That the origins of the taco are basically unknown. However, they may date back to the 18th century and the silver mines in Mexico, because in those mines the word “taco” referred to the little charges they would use to excavate the ore. These were pieces of paper that they would wrap around gunpowder and insert into the holes they carved in the rock face.
The meaning of the Spanish word “taco” is a Mexican innovation, but in other dialects “taco” is used to mean “wedge; wad, plug; billiard cue; blowpipe; ramrod; short, stocky person; [or] short, thick piece of wood.”
The taco predates the arrival of the Spanish in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley Of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish.
The most common type of taco in the US is the hard-shell, U-shaped version. Soft-shelled tacos are corn tortillas that are cooked to a softer state than a hard taco.
