Beginning in the early part of the 20th century, many different types of tacos have become popular all around North America. An early appearance of a description of the taco in the United States was in a cookbook from 1914 in a Californian Mexican Cookbook by Bertha Haffner Ginger. The style that has become most common is the hard-shell, U-shaped version described in a cookbook named The Good Life New Mexican Food published in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1949. Even non-Mexican oriented fast food restaurants have sold tacos and they are now common in many places around the world. This type of taco was helped by the invention of devices to hold the tortillas in the U-shape as they were deep-fried and commercially sold. Such tacos are crisp-fried corn tortillas loaded with seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and sometimes tomato, onion, salsa, sour cream, and avocado or guacamole. A California take on the crispy fried taco that is extremely popular and wherein the corn tortilla is fried or deep-fried in oil is a type that might not be the healthiest because of the frying but can also be baked. The meat can be just about anything such as ground beef, marinated skirt or flank steak, shredded beef, chicken or pork or you can keep it vegetarian. Ground beef is generally diluted with refried bean paste or potato and heavily seasoned.

The meat is generally topped with jack or cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato (and sometimes avocado and sour cream), with salsa on top. Becky’s recipe calls for the hard shell taco but you can make it with a soft shell or even use a wrap to make it into burrito form or it is also great on its own.Thanks to Becky of The Cookie Rookie for her yummy Easy Oven Baked Spicy Chicken Tacos Recipe.
