Growing up I rarely had mexican or tex-mex food. My mum cooked infrequently and was fearful of spicy foods. I am honestly not sure I had a burrito until I was nearly 20. Taco? I might have been 30.
Tacos always seemed like mini burritos to me. They were basically the same ingredients just smaller and I never understood why you would not just eat a burrito. Ashley and Kaleigh really like tacos and we have been eating them more often recently.
I still do not often see a huge difference between the taco and burrito but I am eating them often and enjoying them. They have served as a wonderful quick food to eat prior to a Karate lesson for Kaleigh.
