Do people still eat it? Taco meat is so gross that I don't even go into mexican restaurants any more for fear of seeing or smelling it. The only thing I might even consider these days that is mexican is either nacho's w/o ground taco meat and the churros. Everything else is totally gross. Does anyone still eat that stuff?

Mexicans are tricky buggers. They have so many dishes, yet somehow they're all exactly the same...

You sound like your idea of Mexican food is Taco Bell

Some fabulous Mexican places on Vancouver Island.

Go to La Taqueria downtown and order literally anything on the menu and your mind will be changed about that. Also, authentic Mexican tacos don't usually use the ground meat you're used to.

Are you kidding me? Maybe you ate at Taco Bell or something and think all Mexican foods are similar to what you got at Taco Bell. Either go to an authentic Mexican restaurant or eat home cooked Mexican food and you will probably change your mind.

I love mexican food but for all those naysayers out there Taco Bell and Taco Time are real mexican restaurants. What they try to pass as taco meat there is scary.

OP...as has been noted, try expanding your horizons beyond Taco Bell and you will find a TON of delicious food.

So yes, I still eat Mexican food.

Haha so ridiculous. You do realize that outside of taco bell most tacos aren't even made with "taco meat". You can buy chicken, fish, steak, etc... tacos.

What kind of Mexican food? True Mexican food does not use flour tortillas--it was actually Czech/German immigrants in Texas that used flour tortillas because corn was considered pig feed.

Another point: Veracruz styled dishes are different than Mayan, and both are different from Tex-Mex.

I lived in Central Texas for years, and now I live in Louisiana. Love spices! I remember coming back home to Nanaimo. We went to Gina's Mexican restaurant downtown. I ordered the Chipolte Chicken, and the waitress said, " Are you sure you want to order it, a lot of people do not like it because it is really hot." I told her it won't be a problem, that chipotle only means smoked jalapenos. So I get my dish, take a bite. While it had some kick, compared to what we eat here, it was very bland.

Sounds like you're talking about Taco Bell specifically


Authentic Mexican food is some of the best food out there. I add cilantro to almost everything I cook because I love Mexican food so much haha
