Mexican food, or more popularly spiced food, is one of the most sought after cuisines all over the world. Mexican cuisine comprises of the ancient culinary traditions and cuisines of the modern nation of Mexico. Its roots actually lie in the pre-Columbian era.
The word” tacos” actually means “taco” in Spanish, and this is how the term “Taco” came about. In the early days, these were just simple pieces of raw vegetables topped with whatever type of meat that was available to them. These meals were mainly served to friends and family members, as it was difficult to cook enough food for an entire family on a daily basis. In those times, many Mexicans learned how to make and prepare authentic Mexican food by creating their own versions of the recipes, as well as making adjustments here and there to suit the taste of whatever was available.
This gave way to what we now know as “taco” cuisine.
