Extra taco facts :

The first recorded taco party was held by Hernan Cortes in 1520 but the taco didn’t make it up to the United States until the 20th century. They got here when immigration began to happen from Mexico into the States. The first taco was seen in the United States in 1905 and the hard shell taco wasn’t invented until 1947. The soft corn tortilla shells didn’t stay fresh for long o the hard shell taco was created to solve that problem. From there the first taco stand opened and they spread like crazy. Tacos have become so popular that they even have their own day on the calendar, October 4th is national taco day.
