  2. After scrolling down a little, I realise there are a lot of people commenting how things shouldn't go or can't go… where does this come from? If your against it because it's not tradition, did you ever ask what about before they created said tradition? At one point, there were no fucking tacos, putting the ingredients together is going against tradition. If this was what we stuck to, we would be eating raw ingredients. cooking goes against tradition. (you would pick it and eat it before figuring out how to cook right?) What are these people saying? Am I crazy? If it's because they don't like the ingredients, do they not realise there are billions of humans and that different cultures have different taste appreciation and in each culture you can further break that down into categories that prefer foreign stuff even. I have an opinion, it's not a fact, it's just my opinion, these commenters are closed minded people holding back society. I'm not saying don't appreciate culture, you can title your taco, "traditional taco," or "1000 year old Mexican taco recipe!" When you introduce new variables, (ingredients) you may get new results. In this specific case, cultures that make tacos have people trying new stuff in their own countries simply due to trade. New ingredients, how do I make the next craze? It's not like only other countries do this, people from their own countries do this. For the most part, when foreigners do it, it's because they are trying to accommodate their demographic by playing to their taste buds. If I brought Chinese food to Mexico, I would start with traditional and if that wasn't doing well I would experiment, because this isn't working and I need to survive no? I change some stuff like some ingredients and perhaps even change the way the food is presented and boom, its a hit! Does that mean all Chinese should sit there and cry, "that's not real Chinese food!" (I'm half Chinese, so I use Chinese food in my example) Well, what else do you think it should be called. It's not like I intended for some fusion, I just changed some ingredients in a way that I thought would suit the taste buds of my customers. It came over as Chinese and evolved to sell in the new market. Does that mean its no longer Chinese food? I don't get it. Sorry for the length, I probably could have done this with half the words:/

  3. I tried the spicy chicken tacos and they were really good. I couldn't find canned chipotle pepper but I found flakes so I used that and it made it nice and spicy. Thank you. So fast and easy.
