Pass The Flamingo: Ancient Recipe: Tlahco (tacos) (Aztec, prehistory – 16th century CE)
Seriously! I've lived my life always under the thought that Tacos were a spanish food that was brought over to mexico from spain or developed in mexico afterward. Yeah!, reality just hit me when I found out Tacos were an "Aztec Indian (Nahuati)" food and the spanish were being given false credit by society for inventing this and other food types.
The taco predates the arrival of the Spanish in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish. Writings at the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal Díaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans, a meal which Hernán Cortés arranged for his captains in Coyoacán.I know what the indians in the now U.S. were eating in the past which was some early forms of the now chili meal, buffalo, nuts and cake patties so myself and many others have always been under the impression that the "Mesoamerica" indians ate basically the same types of foods. The twist happened throughout time and in reality the spanish ate pigs, chickens, nuts, veggies, cake patties and the "Mesoamerica" indians created all the great food meals that the mexicans are claiming as their own.
