Tacos are a traditional Mexican dish where in a shell called tortilla made mostly of wheat or corn flour, is wrapped around a filling. It is believed that the origin of tacos occurred in the Mexican silver mines since the first taco ever was called 'taco de minero' which translates to Miners' Taco. The word taco originally referred to pieces of paper that miners would wrap around gunpowder and use in holes that were carved into the face of the rock.
