The History of Tacos
First things first, let’s find out where these lovely little pockets of deliciousness came from. Tacos originated in Mexico but have seen Spanish and American influences being incorporated into them over the years. Tacos take on many forms from soft-shelled tortillas to hard-shelled tacos, but all are meant to be eaten with your hands and enjoyed with a variety of meats, vegetables and salads inside and served with a range of side dishes too.
The difference between tacos and wraps or tortillas is that wraps and tortillas are soft and are meant to be wrapped around their fillings to create a little parcel. Tacos are hard-shelled bread that is meant to have the ingredients set inside of them and are not meant to be wrapped.
