    That gets me in under the wire. I’m about 1/2 mile west of 281 and a few miles South of I20

    Ain't it great, living in God's Country?
    Rights, and Privileges, are not synonymous. We have the Right to Bear Arms. As soon as the Government mandates firearm registration, and permiting, then that Right becomes a Privilege, and may be taken away at our Master's discretion.

    I had friends from Mexico when we lived in Idaho. Their kids fought over fresh corn tacos filled with mashed potatoes and cheese. They were really good but didn't compare to a good fish taco, IMO. I like soft shells, just finished a couple of ground beef, avocado slices and tomatoes. I am not much on cheese or sour cream but have Pace, Jacks Original, Tapatio and Hatch green sauce in the fridge.

    Many of the ethnic Mexicans I've been around and worked with- they use tortillas like we would a slice of bread.

    I like hard shell flavor but refused to eat them for years because of the mess. Then I tried a hard shell inside a soft shell and really like that. Full flavor of both without the crumbling shell mess.

    We have a local place named "Street Tacos" that had interesting signs inside last time I was there.
    The signs say:
    We only sell Mexican Street Tacos.
    We only use American Cheese. Do no ask for Crema.
    Do not ask for sour cream.
    Do not ask for Salsa, we sell Mexican Street Tacos.
    Do not ask for Cilantro.
    Do not ask for wheat flour tortillas. We sell Mexican Street Tacos made with corn tortillas.
    Honduran restaurant is next door. (Yes, they have a sign saying a Honduran restaurant is next door if you want the stuff they won't sell).

    The Honduran restaurant is actually a few doors down next to the Salvadoran Bakery.

    When you travel around the country as a military brat, you find some great food from odd sources. A friend living in NW FL from Kansas City would have taco parties at his house. His father was a doctor in the Mexican part of Kansas City, Kansas. Used to send his son suitcases full of frozen, in dry ice, hand rolled raw taco shells, onion skin thin. Deal was, you ticket was bring Lone Star long necks in an ice chest and your own tongs.
    All the women upon arrival helped with making 2 gal of salsa and platters of toppings, he cooked the meat in a big 5gal mess hall pot. 5 lbs meat with taco seasoning stirred in, cooked down, then swamped out the grease with white paper towels and tongs, then add water over the top of the meat and boil, stirring constantly until all the water is gone, repeat one time with the water. Meat has no grease left in it and is very tasty.
    You learned quick where to buy a spring SS taco forming tong for each hand. Like eating hot tacos made from potato chips. We never buy salsa. Son is a salsa freak, loves grilled steak with salsa as served in Argentina.

    When I first got to MCB Quantico, Virginia, I saw a Taco Bell just outside the base.
    I thought, 'Ahhh, a little bit of home'...
    So I went in, and was rather surprised to see the entire staff was Korean.

    I thought, 'hmm,, this might be interesting'. But it was the same as Taco Bells back home.
    I got my order, and I was getting ready to leave, the guy at the counter asked, "Do you also want jap-o-leen peppers"?

    I would ask if the street tacos had asphalt in them or just concrete.

    "Street Tacos" is a euphemism for "Road Kill"...

    This is a real restaurant with Health Department inspections (not that that means much in PG Co. MD). It's not like the guy with the cart outside the bars in San Luis or Tijuana.

    40 years ago there was a humble greasy spoon cafe/beer joint/pool hall in Austin, called Hector’s Taco Flats. Their sign out front proclaimed “OVER 2000 TACOS RETURNED”. Periodically they would amend the sign to a larger number.

    Inside they had a sign stating “WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SERVE REFUSE TO ANYONE”

    Good times.

    I have a problem - I like blue corn taco shells and white corn too. Both are awesome in their own way. I use ground beef (85/15) and put chopped tomatoes, lettuce, and shredded cheddar on the table along with salsa. The ground beef gets cooked with 1 tablespoon of chili powder, one teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Yummy! Note - there needs to be refried beans too.
