I make tacos at least once a week, if not twice! Tacos are way better than burritos. For one thing, flour tortillas disgust me. They just taste weird. I don't like them. Every time I get a burrito, I end up just eating the filling. Tacos, however, usually come in tortillas made of corn. Plus, there's a tortilla factory only a few blocks from my art studio on Santa Fe that makes the best corn tortillas - so fresh and soft! Enchiladas are probably my favorite-favorite, but tacos are quick and easy when one is enhungered.
Sometimes my tacos are simply spicy black beans with tomato, avocado, and hot sauce. Other times I incorporate leftovers, like the Field Roast kielbasa tacos below. Sometimes I like to get fancy - I'm experimenting with inventing my own "tofish" tacos as seen in the first photo. Tacos also go great with my favorite food group, beer.
For as often as I make tacos, you'd think I'd blog about them more! But even in my blog posts, tacos are beating burritos 4 - 1, and the burrito post is from 5 years ago...here's the evolution of the Tacos vs. Burritos debate on Rubber Cowgirl:

Notice how all these posts happened on Tuesdays? That's not entirely coincidence. I'm a teensy bit miffed that this post is going up on a Monday. I blame it on the burritos.
