Tacos are a traditional and very popular Mexican dish. Tacos can be made with a variety of fillings like chicken, minced meat, pork, vegetables etc and garnishes such as salsa, guacamole, tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce etc. Traditionally, soft-shelled tacos are referred to as corn tortillas. Beginning from the early part of the twentieth century, various styles of tacos have become popular in the United States and Canada, like the hard-shell, U-shaped version (source wiki). When I was in London, I went to Chipotle many times and enjoyed Mexican/Tex-Mex food. They serve delicious burritos and tacos. My favorite was the crispy shell tacos filled with beans, grilled vegetables, mild salsa and with lettuce and guacamole toppings.
