October 4th is Taco Day!
National Taco Day is October 4. Tacos are a crowd-pleaser. Everybody loves tacos because tacos are customizable. You can put steak, shrimp, rice, vegetables, and so much more in a taco. Whatever flavors you are craving, a taco can satisfy your hunger.
Anthropologist and historian Arturo Warman was cited saying that Aztecs and Mayans produced corn around 3,000 BC. We assume that they were also producing corn tortillas around this time. In a letter written by Hernando Cortez to Spain’s King Charles V, Cortez talked about a native flatbread called tlaxcalli. Tlaxcalli is what we now know as tortillas.
In 1929, a popular cookbook called “Ramona’s Spanish-Mexican Cookery” had six taco-related recipes. One was for pork tacos, while another was for gorditas from Santa Nita. Then, in 1962, Ralph Rubio opened Rubios, a restaurant that specialized in fish tacos made using a recipe from a Baja native named Carlos.
