Madbassist1: untaken_name: mc_madness: Taco Bell is the best Mexican cuisine on earth. Amazing quality for the price.

Your point has merit in any part of the country without taco trucks. Really, it does. Taco Bell makes very tasty food and it's comparatively cheap. There are innumerable Mexican restaurants around here and very few of them can match the taste of lowly Taco Bell and they all cost more. Only in a proper taco truck can the price/performance ratio of Taco Bell be exceeded. (if it has some punny name, like "Mexican Sweet" or "Lettuce Make You Tacos", it's not a proper taco truck, it's a hipster truck. DO NOT BE FOOLED)

Wow...I'm glad someone else said this (I certainly do not want to incur the wrath of FARK® for chrissakes), but it IS true, sorry. Much like my surprise while working in Texas when I discovered that "Authentic" Tex-Mex tastes pretty damn bland compared to the Mexican we get in Ohio. Also true....sorry.


Don't confuse Tex Mex with Mexican.

Actually, Mexican is kind of bland. By far the best variation is New Mexican. After eating good New Mexican food id't tough to settle for any other kind.

DeltaPunch: Whatever happened to that 35% beef claim? I can't find any evidence that it's false other than Taco Bell themselves bombing the country with ad campaigns claiming it was 88%. I'm sure they've changed the percentage by now, but was there any truth to the original 35% claim?


there was never any truth to the 35% claim. it was bullshiat anti-fastfood hype, mostly spread on the interwebs

88% sounds low, but if you make tacos with ground beef at home you're probably doing around the same...because that 12% includes water along with the seasonings, and i and a lot of other folks use water to simmer in the seasonings.

as for the longtime popular "grade f" beef claims, etc...there's really no such thing. they use ground beef. there can be ground beef from many parts of the cow, but it's all still muscle from bovines

bungle_jr: thornhill: animal900: thornhill: I feel that I'm justifiably contemptuous of people getting excited about anything Taco Bell makes considering that 12% of their beef includes:

Water, Seasoning [Isolated Oat Product, Salt, Chili Pepper, Onion Powder, Tomato Powder, Oats (Wheat), Soy Lecithin, Sugar, Spices, Maltodextrin, Soybean Oil (Anti-dusting Agent), Garlic Powder, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Citric Acid, Caramel Color, Cocoa Powder (Processed With Alkali), Silicon Dioxide, Natural Flavors, Yeast, Modified Corn Starch, Natural Smoke Flavor], Salt, Sodium Phosphates. CONTAINS SOYBEAN, WHEAT

So...they put seasoning in their beef?

[mississaugaelite.com image 327x217]

Maltodextrin and Silicon Dioxide are seasoning?

And nearly a quarter of the meat being "seasoning" is a huge amount. More like filler to keep the costs down.

truth...if you made tacos from scratch at home that are similar in texture/taste to tb, you probably have closer to 5-10% added stuff. although for cheap fast food it's still not shocking

really tasty cheap = $0.99 wendy's jr deluxe cheeseburger. it's a small burger patty, but as far as i can tell from the taste/texture it's all beef, no filler...perhaps a little seasoning. most of the cheap burgers like that you can tell are made with some oats or soy in it


2 more things:

1) the oats, soy, corn starch and wheat are clearly filler to reduce the total meat content in order to minimize cost.

2) If you were making at home you'd use actual vegetables instead of just powder.

How much do they cost?

About $1.99

So it's like the same damm 39 cent taco as the ones they usually sell, but with a bit of orange sprinkles on the shell for a buck and a half more... and it's a huge hit?

Damm people are stupid, top notch real tacos at a place like Robertos are 2 bucks, Carnitas, Asada, Lengua, whatever you want


Saw that and knew you were from Vegas. Unfortunantly that place is not a nation wide chain.

1) true. i didn't claim it's not

2) maybe, maybe not. a lot of families, mine included, DO indeed use powder (those packets of taco seasoning on the grocery store shelves for about $0.50) instead of actual vegetables. my wife and my step-daughter are extremely picky eaters, and that is a quick simple meal that they'll eat. i'm not much of a veggie eater either, but they are FAR less likely to eat them than i am

healthy? maybe not up to the standards of the fark healthnut elite, but it's better than a lot of kids i know are getting at home

Oh, definitely, but much of what we think of as "Mexican" in the US is really Southwest. While much of it has roots in Mexican cooking, and was even developed by Mexican Americans, the flavors are different than those south of the border. Obviously the available ingredients vary so much that a lot of the dishes couldn't have been developed in Mexico proper.

Yes, but a lot of the crap that passes for Mexican in the States isn't authentic from any region of Mexico. There's some Tex-Mex bleedover (like corn tortillas fried crispy to make taco shells), especially in the northern states, but the regional cuisines in fact vary rather widely. Which makes claims like "Mexican food is just filled tortillas in different forms" from various people especially galling.

branchtroy: Last night I had a hankering for some Mexican (style) food. Bought 2lbs of ground chuck. Seasoned with Adobo, ground cumin, five crushed minced cloves of fresh garlic, pepper, chili powder, onion powder and salt. Then I took one can of cream of chicken soup (not the fat free kind) and mixed it up with sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheese and melted it all together with a can of green chilies. Fried up some flour tortillas, slapped on some re-fried beans, meat, cheese sauce, sour cream and some hot sauce. Yucking fummy!!!! Can't wait to get home from work and have left-overs.


I made a blackberry cobbler from scratch last night. Was a nice dessert after some shell crab and clams.

I incur the wrath of FARK® on a daily basis just for telling the truth, so no worries. I'm not saying that you can't possibly find better Mexican (or tex-mex) in Texas than Taco Bell, what I'm saying is that if you go to a random tex-mex or mexican restaurant in Texas, where I live, you will most likely pay more for food that isn't as tasty as Taco Bell food. For the people who said "you can find better mexican". Sure, of course you can. But you can find a Taco Bell a HELL of a lot quicker, and it's most likely going to be cheaper, too.

A) since when is 12% = a quarter.
B) a good portion of that 12% is gonna equal water.

you're looking at maybe 5% seasoning, just like anywhere else.

Like I said, to each their own. Not everything I make is 100% authentic, either.
I just don't understand the trend of folks being more dismissive of authenticity when it comes to certain ethnic foods, than they would be when it comes to others. Eat what you want, but don't be surprised if you get called out for making ignorant claims.

Maltodextrin is a sweetener. Silicon dioxide occurs naturally in food, and it provides the silicon without which we would die since silicon does not occur in food EXCEPT AS silicon dioxide. 12% is nowhere close to a quarter. You are completely full of crap.

Makes me want to give them Arsenic. It's "all natural" too... see how you like it


I dunno. I don't like to support hippy fru fru granolaculture either, but I'm not eating that shiat.

Generally speaking I don't eat meat unless I knew said meat while it was alive.

Seriously.

Every year, I go pick out a cow, lamb, and pig over at a farm nearby. I specify I want mine fed grass only and I get updates about once a month on how they are progressing sort of like if I had adopted it...except that instead of adopting it, I'm gonna eat it. Why do I ask for the updates you ask? Because then I can track its growth rate to ensure the farmer is not bulking it up on corn 2-3 months before slaughter.

When its time to do the deed I go over there and watch so I can verify hanging weight. Then I take it over to a butcher and get the whole thing cut to order.

You know what makes a good farking taco? Paper shaved roundeye steak. Marinate it overnight in a puree of salt, pepper, sugar, jalepeno, habenero, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano and olive oil.

Throw it on the grill. Slap it in either some some nice homemade tortas or if you dig the gluten, grilled flatbread. Serve with a heavily limed fresh salsa and a few crumbles of Penella.

I go to the grocery and buy lean meat as I need it.

It tastes fine, I don't eat pounds of it every day, and wouldn't you know it? I'm healthy.

/and not a snob


ehhh. Its less snobby than you think. My cost for beef is $2.49 a lb when I buy the whole cow. Cost a far amount up front, but its vacuum sealed and it lasts me for a year.

Also, its worth the few cents more per lb. (about an additional $.09) to have your cow processed locally. Most of the bad shiat that happens to beef happens in mass processing plants, not in the hands of a skilled butcher.

yeah, this. i don't remember ever seeing $0.39 tacos at taco bell, and i've been going there for close to 25 years. i think even when they had the "fiesta menu" in the mid- to late-90s the fiesta size tacos cost more than that...and those were like 1/2 size tacos.

1. i've worked fast food...bk (for a total of close to 2 years) and tb (for 4 days...in that 4 days i had clocked a whopping 8 hours so i quit tb and went to a locally owned "mexican" restaurant). believe it or not, the fast food chains are held to the same standard by the health inspectors that the locally owned restaurants are held to

2. the same quality "kids" that work in fast food work in the regular restaurants

3. the coporate bosses hold the chains to an even higher standard than the local bosses at the mom & pop places do, and i've seen bosses demoted or fired on the spot for the corporate bosses popping in and not seeing these standards met
