Arturo Warman was an anthropologist and historian who studied prehistoric Mexican culture. He cited that the Aztecs and Mayans began producing corn in 3,000 BC. We assume that around this time, the Aztec and Mayans were also making corn tortillas and what we know today as tacos.
In 1520, Hernando Cortex wrote a letter to Spain’s King Charles V. The letter contained information about a native flatbread called “tlaxcalli.” We now know tlaxcalli as “tortilla.”
One of the first published taco recipes was in the popular cookbook “Ramon’s Spanish-Mexican Cookery.” The book, published in 1929, contained six taco-related recipes. One of which included pork tacos, while another was for gorditas from Santa Nita.
