Are Chico’s Tacos Real Tacos?
In celebration of 65 delicious years of our beloved El Paso tradition, Chico's Tacos, we must ask a controversial question. Are Chico's Tacos actually tacos?
I guess it depends on who you ask. According to Merriam-Webster, a taco is defined as
a usually fried tortilla that is folded or rolled and stuffed with a mixture (as of seasoned meat, cheese, and lettuce).
Okay, it falls into that category but many will argue it is a flauta. Now let us look at that definition from Merriam-Webster:
a usually corn tortilla rolled tightly around a filling (as of meat) and deep-fried.
What nonsense is this?! Both included a rolled fried tortilla. Is Chico's Tacos a hybrid? Can it be considered tortilla soup? Whatever Chico's Tacos wants to be is fine with me as long as they continue to be delicious. As Mike & Tricia Mornings loves to discuss, no matter if you love them or hate them crazy taco flauta things, they are truly an El Paso tradition.
I guess I will just leave it to majority rules as to what to classify this cherished food, so take the poll below!
