The hidden history of tacos

According to Jeffrey M. Pilcher, history professor at the University of Minnesota, the origins of the beloved taco are truly mysterious. His theory, however, states that it dates back from the 18th century in the Mexican silver mines.

Within those mines, the word ‘taco’ refers to the explosives used to blow up and extract the precious silver ore. In fact, one of the first taco recipes is called ‘tacos de minero,’ which translates to ‘miner’s tacos.’

Have a taste of history and celebrate this cherished dish at El Chubby’s, where the food is fresh and the flavor is timeless.
