Taco Tuesday’s Will Never Be The Same
Hailed as a predominantly Mexican-dish, tacos have a very interesting history so let’s ‘taco-about-it’!
Tacos are thought to come from Mexico, long before the Spanish arrived.
Ancient Mexicans used freshly made, soft, flat corn tortillas and gave them with fillings like fish and cooked organs.
It was full of nutrients and energy to those who consumed it.
Tacos are less than 100 years old!
The word taco was created in the 18th century where Mexican silver miners wrapped gunpowder up in a paper like “taquito” and inserted it into rocks before blowing it up.
Tacos were known as a street food of the working class, and were also called “tacos de minero” or: “miners tacos”.
We definitely don’t think that way back then, anyone was thinking of creating Cannabis-infused tacos but hey, let the past be in the past, and let’s get cooking!

- 1 small onion – red or white chopped up
- 1 cup freshly grated cheese of choice monteray jack or spicy havarti is great!
Dice both onions as fine as you can and set aside.
Peel then crush garlic cloves with the heel of your thumb then dice finely, set aside.
Over a mild heat, melt half the cannabutter or heat half the oil until a test speck of onion starts to sizzle. Add the onions and sauté, continuously stirring with the spatula, until the onions start to go clear. Put the onions in a large bowl.
Add taco seasoning or spices, crushed garlic, and tomato paste to the onion, and stir until combined.
Return pan to the heat and add the rest of the cannabutter.
Toss in the ground beef and slightly brown, breaking the mince up with the spatula as it cooks. IF using fish, you’ll need to warm up the oven, place battered fish on cookie sheets and bake as per instructions.
Add the onion, spice, and tomato paste mix back into the pan and stir thoroughly. Turn heat down to low and leave to simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
While your meat mixture is simmering, start chopping and grating your toppings. Put salsa, sour cream,etc in bowls.
Once everything is complete and ready, remove the pan and place meat into bowl with a spoon for serving.
Leave the pan on low, and warm up your tortillas. Check for browning and bubbles – that’s when you know they are done. You can place them in clean tea-towels, wrapped up so they stay warm and crispy, or special tortilla bowl if you have it. Warm corn tortillas make it the best.
