History of the taco

Yossarian passes along this interesting read about the history of the taco, including Glen Bell’s role in bringing it to the masses. The expert interviewed suspects that the term “taco” comes from Mexican mining communities and is named for a way gunpowder was wrapped to blast holes in rock. So tacos were born of explosives. Somehow this makes me like tacos even more, which I didn’t think possible.
