The word “taco” itself means little charges they use to dig the rocks. It was a piece of paper that would be wrapped around gunpowder and it will be put inside a hole in the rock. The first kind of tacos was called “tacos de minero” which means miner’s tacos. Therefore, tacos are not a food after all; it is more like a folk expression. Tacos are usually comprises of corn tortilla rolled around a filling.

The filling can include a variety of foods such as beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables and cheese depending on your preference.

Around 1910 to 1920, tacos were starting to gain popularity because of the migrants who came in and started to obtain citizenship through civil rights and those who fought for the World War II.
