Taco from Odd Future
A taco (/ˈtɑːkoʊ/) is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables and cheese, allowing for great versatility and variety. A taco is generally eaten without utensils and is often accompanied by garnishes such as salsa, avocado or guacamole, cilantro, tomatoes, minced meat, onions and lettuce.
Those Mexicans will eat anything shitty
According to the Real Academia EspaÃ±ola, publisher of Diccionario de la Lengua EspaÃ±ola, the word taco describes a typical Mexican dish of a maize tortilla folded around food ("Tortilla de maÃz enrollada con algÃºn alimento dentro, tÃpica de MÃ©xico"). The original sense of the word is of a "plug" or "wad" used to fill a hole ("Pedazo de madera, metal u otra materia, corto y grueso, que se encaja en algÃºn hueco"). The Online Etymological Dictionary defines taco as a "tortilla filled with spiced meat" and describes its etymology as derived from Mexican Spanish, "light lunch," literally, "plug, wadding." The sense development from "plug" may have taken place among Mexican silver miners, who used explosive charges in plug form consisting of a paper wrapper and gunpowder filling
omg steve can I call you back I'm real busy.
That's what your mother said.
The taco predates the arrival of Europeans 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. Writing at the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal DÃaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans, a meal which HernÃ¡n CortÃ©s arranged for his captains in CoyoacÃ¡n. It is not clear why the Spanish used their word, "taco", to describe this indigenous food.
