Many Historians believe that the taco first came along in the 18th century, created by and for miners, but this myth is soon to be debunked. The word taco comes from the nahuatl “tlahco” which literally means “in the middle”. It is known that in pre-hispanic Mexico, the natives used the corn to make tortillas, and with them, they transported any kind of stew, meat, and dish, into their mouths. There is no exact date as to which the tortilla was invented, but it would be pretty accurate to say that it wasn’t in the 18th century, given the fact that the Spaniards arrived to Mexico in the 16th century. Back in Ancient Mexico, the main source of meat was the Guajolote (Turkey), so perhaps, the first taco ever consumed was a turkey taco, something people don’t consume anymore. Today, tacos are eaten all around the world as fast food, and they have been adapted to each culture, things such as the hard-shelled tortillas have changed how people think about tacos, but never forget, that tacos can date back as around a thousand (probably more) years ago.
