Taco Evolution

In my twenties, I went to a Mexican restaurant and ordered tacos. When they arrived the filling was shredded beef! I was appalled! What was this? Tacos are made with hamburger, right? I never went back to that restaurant because they obviously had no idea how to make a taco.

Now let’s fast forward 40+ years . . .

Jamaican Jerk Chicken Taco with Avocado Sauce
Thai Chicken Taco with Peanut Sauce
Barbacoa Beef Taco
Asian Chicken Taco with Siracha Sauce

Tacos are no longer ground beef, cheese, lettuce, chopped tomato and if I want to be really fancy, sour cream. I have explored the world of tacos and tasted an interesting combination of flavors. A few other unique flavors I have tried include crispy black bean and feta tacos, sweet chili fajita tacos, and roasted cauliflower street tacos.

Perhaps it’s more a taco revolution than an evolution. Whatever it is, I am enjoying the new flavors.

  1. Now I am hungry! I love tacos but these … amazing. Makes me wish I had a job like Guy Fieri, traveling around to sample such revolutionary stuff. Probably best I don’t…and for the record, I, too, thought the world tilted a bit when I first got a taco with shredded beef. Have come a long way since! Thanks for this delectable post.
