breakfast taco rundown

continuing on with my blogging about the many different foods that were consumed over the weekend with my parents, i’d like to mention the breakfast taco. before moving to Texas i had never heard of them. the only tacos i knew were fried and covered with lettuce and cheese. the best in the world being at Mi Nidito in Tucson. this Mexican restaurant is frankly the best Sonora style Mexican food you would ever be blessed to eat. the restaurant has been featured in magazines and food television shows (most recently “Man vs. Food”, see below). it became even more famous after Bill Clinton dined there in ’99 and ate such a monstrous plate that it was crowned, “The President’s Plate.” Madeline Albright and Governor Bruce Babbitt have dined there as well. which makes me wonder what Republicans have against it. probably they are too afraid to venture into south Tucson for fear of those scary latino gangs.

but back to the breakfast taco…3 years ago, i introduced my Mother to one and she’s loved them ever since.  i love them too, especially from Maria’s Taco XPress on S. Lamar. best in Texas. hands down. the key to a good bacon, egg and cheese taco is getting the bacon crackling crispy. another key is not using powdered eggs. i have tried them at Bill Miller’s BBQ and i would swear they are using powdered eggs. ugh.

you know, this is a frightfully boring post. go eat a taco.
