For those in “that” camp who absolutely LOVE those hard-shell chingaderas, we’re just going to set you aside over here:
Go ahead and eat your hard shell tacos that break down after one bite, your chopped lettuce, your shredded cheese, and your fake meat. You enjoy that. Seriously.
So why are tacos so perfect? Why are they so damn good? Why are they so ridiculously mouthwatering? Why are they the best thing to come out of planet earth? Here are eight essential reasons:
1. The small corn tortilla. Dipped in just enough cooking oil to make it tender to the bite. The tortilla is essential to keeping everything in line. It’s the leader. The team captain. The cover to the greatest book you’ll ever read.
5. And finally, the greatest triple-threat tag team in the world: cilantro, onion, and lime. A team responsible for elevating the taco to a euphoric level of greatness.
If cilantro tastes like soap to you, that sucks. I know it’s not your fault, and there’s some weird genetic thing going on that’s not under your control, but you’re really missing out.
