Taco facts for kids
A taco is a traditional Mexican food. It is made from a tortilla that is rolled or folded around a filling. The tortilla is usually made of maize (corn). It can be hard or soft. Some tortillas are made from flour.
Most tacos are made with a beef filling. Other tacos are filled with chicken, pork or fish. Cheese, lettuce, guacamole, or pico de gallo can also be put on a taco. Sometimes, a taco is made with salsa or spicy Tapitio sauce.
