Despite its diversity, to really be called a taco, this preparation requires three basic elements: tortilla, some ingredient to wrap with it (stews, vegetables or proteins, including insects) and the essential sauce in which, again, all kinds of components can participate.

The base of every taco is definitely the tortilla; the essence is in the corn, sustenance of the Mexicans.

In pre-Hispanic times, women prepared tortillas on a hot stone or on a comal placed directly on the stove, and decorated them using red chili as pigment.

For the correct preparation of corn, as well as to take better advantage of its nutrients and facilitate its digestion, this basic ingredient is cooked in lime water or with ash to release the skin (husk).

Subsequently, the corn cooked in this way, known as nixtamal, is ground to obtain the mass of the tortillas. They come in all colors, depending on the variety of corn used, and in different sizes.
