The traditional taco is a Mexican staple. It is made from a corn tortilla wrapped around some sort of filling. Traditionally, the tortilla is soft, but some variations from different countries have hard shells, as well as flour tortillas.
Tacos are filled with a variety of filling such as beef, chicken, fish, pork, cheese, lettuce, onions, guacamole. Sauces can also be added to tacos ranging from salsa to hot sauces like Tapitio. People use many different combinations of foods to build the taco, so it is very versatile.
Tacos are world popular, but especially so in Mexico, China and the United States. In the USA, tacos have been industrialized by fast food businesses such as Taco Bell, Dell Taco, and Chipotle.
