You can get taco kits in every decent grocery store here, surely you can get some in England.

If not, you should at least be able to get some tortillas you can fry up into your own taco shells. I'm a fan of cumin, chili powder, onion powder(can be omitted if you're using minced onions in your meat), garlic powder and salt for my seasonings when making my own ground beef tacos.

Really, though, what makes a taco unique? He's had an enchilada, which is meat wrapped in a tortilla with cheese and sauce. Fajita's are the same, tortillas, meat, veggies, cheese. I'd say he's not missed anything mind-blowing. ***-blowing maybe, but I for one am envious of a world without Taco Bell.

When I think of tacos, I think of hard shells, although they come in soft shells now. If Nilati want's to test out what a taco is like, grab a good, thick corn chip and cover it in sour cream and/or gaucamole, salsa, cheese, maybe some refried beans, some ground beef/shredded beef/chicken/etc, some tomatoes and lettuce. That will give you an idea of what they're like.

Same.

Also, Taco Bell doesn't exist on this side of the pond. As far as I'm aware anyway. We only have McDonalds, Burger King and KFC and only precious few of the last one.

I was going to comment on how we don't have <insert ethnicity here> in the US, yet I've eaten <insert ethnic food here>, but couldn't actually think of an ethnicity that would work. I mean, I've never eaten Haggis or Balut, but we clearly have the represented ethnicities here. I'm sure there's some odd food somewhere that folks in the US don't eat.

To be fair, tacos are more of a make at home kind of thing than something you'd order in a restaurant. Mostly because they are so simple and basic that most people don't order them. A typical taco night involves the following:

Buy small corn tortillas. Put oil (seasoned+garlic+whatever if you feel like it) in a wide shallow pan. Set a plate/tray with paper towel on it to the side. One at a time, put tortillas into the oil. Cook until they start to firm, then fold over (but not completely flat), remove from oil and place on the tray. Repeat until you have the desired number of shells (takes about 1-2 minutes maybe to cook each one depending on how hot the oil is).

For fillings, brown some ground beef (you can season this or not, as you wish), cook a can of refried beans, chop some tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cheese. Have some guacamole and/or sour cream and salsa. Add a small amount of each of the ingredients to the shell until full (or overfull, which is half the fun). Eat. Enjoy!


The great thing about tacos is that since they have so many different things in them, you don't need to think in terms of entrees, sides, etc. Each is a pretty balanced meal by themselves. And they're yummy!

It's like Taco Bell is trying to get us to avoid them.

I've made nachos using Doritos before(I was a college kid at the time). They were aight, so I can't imagine that being too bad if you like regular Taco Bell tacos.

There's a restaurant that serves insects and other weird **** around here, calling it gourmet cuisine. Roaches, spiders, mill-worms. Dog and monkey, I'm pretty sure the only reason they're not on the menu is because of hippies. Horse? Well, that's in "Grade D, But Edible." So I'm sure a lot more people have had it than realize.

Uniformly? I'd think there's got to be some good cuts on there somewhere but can't say I ever looked into it.

I'm sure you can get a lovely sirloin out of Mr. Ed, but I haven't looked into it, either. I just know that the Grade D But Edible labeling includes "assorted horse parts," after I saw a box labeled that make it's way into a Taco Bell in Fort Dix, New Jersey and I got curious what that exactly meant.
