In my house growing up, we had tacos once a week for dinner. Tacos were ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream. Tacos are also my husband's favorite meal, but in his house, tacos were: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, peppers, red or green bell peppers diced, green and red onions, and even olives.
In my house, tacos were either eaten in corn tortillas that my mom had fried or flour tortillas. In my husband's house, tacos were served in the corn shells that you buy at the store. My husband just discovered that Trader Joe's is now selling the shells (which is wonderful since Sami will eat them!).
So, we ate them for the first time tonight. First, I put in the beans and then the other stuff in the taco in layers. My husband, on the other hand, put all the stuffings on his plate, mixed it up together with his fork and then scooped it into the shell. Wow! I'd honestly never seen anyone do this before (it's not the way we eat tacos in LA), but it makes a lot of sense and then you really get to taste everything together!
