The history of this Mexican food was initiated in the regions of silver mines. The term Taco was used to refer to a piece of paper. These papers were constantly used to wrap the gun powder and place it inside the holes of the mines. The taco stands were made famous by the Mexican women who commonly visited the city to sell the tacos for money. As a result, the recipe was shared all over the country and the rest of the world.
