National Taco Day: The history behind the handheld, fast food favorite

National Taco Day: The history behind the handheld, fast food favorite




Here’s what you need to know about the history of the taco.

According to Pilcher, the miners called the pieces of paper wrapped around gunpowder and placed into holes in the rock face "tacos."

"When you think about it, a chicken taquito with a good hot sauce is really a lot like a stick of dynamite," Pilcher told Smithsonian Magazine. 

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Mexican immigrants were selling tacos in the southwestern U.S. as early as the 1880s and by the 1920s, those taco recipes were "adapted to appeal more to the American palate."

Pilcher told Smithsonian that the first time a taco was mentioned in the U.S. was in a 1905 newspaper. In the 1910s and 1920s, tacos became more mainstream in the U.S.
