Rose Burillo – Why We Adore Tacos So Much in Mexico

There is absolutely no doubt about the fact that tacos are absolutely everything in Mexico, and it is one of the first things that I will seek out when I get down there. I visit Mexico about twice a year, as I have a very good friend down there, Rose Burillo, who I love to go and see. We have created a tradition now which means that as soon as I arrive, we make a beeline for my favorite tacos.

There is no underestimating the power that tacos have in Mexico, and they are by far and away the most favorite of all Mexican foods. So what exactly is the reason that  these little bundles of joy are loved as much as they are, by as many people? Here is what I have come up with.

Multiple Meal Options

Tacos are not just great as a meal choice, they can also be used for a light snack in the middle of the day. This is arguably one of the reasons why tacos are consumed at the rate which they are, because they are just so easy to eat and they really do serve a number of purposes no matter what level of hunger you have.

Range of Filling Options

Tacos are one of the most inclusive food options which you could think about, because they offer something for absolutely everyone. No matter if you are vegan, vegetarian or a fully blown meat eater, there is very much something for you here. Even within each area such as fish, meat and plant-based, there are such an enormous range of choices which you have when you decide to get some tacos. This means that regardless of what someone’s personal preference may be, there are certainly tacos for all.

Low Cost Meal

Tacos are undoubtedly popular because of the fact that they are so cheap to buy. Prices range of course but you will never hear anyone tell you that they purchased a high cost taco, this is just something that doesn’t happen. This makes the snack perfectly affordable for everyone and it is yet another reason why it is the nation’s favorite meal option.

Easy Eating

And finally it is worth pointing out the fact that these delicious little parcels of joy are absolutely simple to eat. These can be enjoyed without a knife, a fork and even a plate! This makes eating tacos a much nicer experience and one which feels so much nicer. We love finger food and actually eating with your hands gives the snack an extra layer of enjoyment.

There is no doubt that tacos are the most popular dish in Mexico and this popularity has also extended to the US and to the wider world. These are the main reasons for me, why so many adore tacos and why they will continue to reign as the most eaten snack and meal in the nation. Which are your favorite tacos?
