Nick el Ass: Taco Hell died when they took the chili cheese burrito off the menu.


The chili cheese burrito was one of the few items that could be stored in the fridge for later. Nothing to get soggy. No lettuce or sour cream to get destroyed in the microwave. Perfect for 11 am breakfast after you took down a billion crunchy tacos post bar night.

Now with the removal of the meximelt, you have to eat everything immediately after purchase. Taco Bell has nothing left for the forward thinking drunk and/or stoner.

Note that this is a bullshiat contest, in the context that there's always at least one stolen base in the World Series.  I believe the last time there wasn't one was 1942.  So, they always plan on giving away the tacos.

Corn tortillas for street tacos, flour tortillas for burritos and wraps.

Texas.  Nothing beats a warm fresh flour tortilla (not some crap that you buy in a yankee grocery store in a package).  Especially for breakfast tacos.

That actually surprises me, because the stolen base is such a lost art in general these days.

I didn't feel like digging for a confirmation, but according to Wikipedia, there was at least one stolen base in 1942.  From the Game 2 blurb:  "Johnny Beazley pitched seven shutout innings, but in the eighth allowed a two-out single to Roy Cullenbine, who stole second and scored on Joe DiMaggio's single."

When I grill at home, if I buy the small street taco sized tortillas, I spring for the flour ones. You need to perfect your wet/crunch/sticky/etc ratios and quantities perfectly or you tear up your corn tortillas. Flour tortillas taste better and are stronger, they can handle a wider range of fillings and filling textures. Corn tortillas are for turning into chips.

Try these: they have both corn and wheat flour in them, but you wouldn't know about the wheat if they didn't tell you.
I still consider them a corn tortilla.

I've had tacos and burritos, of both types, in NJ, and most places usually have tortillas in a selection of flour, corn, whole wheat, and a few other more niche types.

Though the only place I've seen here ever use hard shells is Taco Bell.

You can argue taco wrappings all you want but if you make enchiladas with flour tortillas then you are a horrible person. That gooey mess can go straight in to the trash.

I pulled that stat from memory, and was slightly off.  The last year the World Series didn't have a stolen base was 1944, not 1942.

In the Houston and local Gulf coast, the difference in breakfast burritos vs tacos is size and number of things stuffed in the tortilla. It is definitely more TexMex than Mexico.

For breakfast tacos it generally a small flour tortilla with eggs plus one of the following: potatoes, bacon, chorizo, beans, cheese, and machado. Sometimes you may two items plus the eggs, usually cheese.

For breakfast burritos, it is generally a base of five items plus switchouts or things left out due to personal choice. You will often see them called local nicknames like surprises, broncos and whatnot. The base is a big flour tortilla with eggs, potatoes, bacon, beans and cheese. Chorizo is a common swap for bacon and some people choose to remove things like beans. My favorite at El Jardin in Galveston adds carne guisada to the base five and it is awesome.

Street tacos generally are single ingredient tacos (not eggs) in corn tortillas, although some peeps will get flour. These are more Mexico City or Monterey based Mexican tacos. The innards could be any number of meats like fajita, pollo, carnitas, carne guisada, lengua, pastor, chicharones, barbacoa and more. Occasionally you may find a Yucatan based taqueria which will have different styles of the above and some completely different fillings. Some taqueria will have garnishes and salsas on the side while some will have the garnishes already in the taco.
