Personally, I don't like tacos.

But I will defend to the death your right to have them.

27. My favorite is dark meat turkey

slow cooked with green chile and tomatillos, then pulled like pork. Fill the tacos with whatever else you like.

Turkey is traditional. Pork, beef, chicken, and lamb are all colonial imports.

4. Greatly appreciate it, Mal.

Salute with a Negra Modelo to you. Can't help thinking you've never had my tacos, though, not that they're the best ever, just kinda wonderful anyway.

6. tacos are not a single thing

they are as varied as sandwiches (in fact that is essentially what they are)

do you really not like any tacos?

14. Show me a taco without plant matter...

... and I'd be okay with it. A taco shell with chili, say. I daresay, one could make a peanut butter and jelly taco if he wanted to...

21. easy!

tacos (insert type of meat: asada, carnitas, pollo, al pastor, de cabeza, camarones, etc) sin verduras.

seriously? not even salsa or pico de gallo?

most street places just give you the meat and tortillas on a plate and you add whatever from a condiment tray

7. You don't like them?

Not even topped with guacamole, sour cream, chopped onion, tomato and cilantro? Not the Taco Bell chopped stuff - the real deal in big chunks.

I'm partial to ranch or nachos flavored shells, myself, but maybe those are too commercial for some. I like them for standing up while I stuff them too.

Best I've ever had were from a Mexican market. Soft warmed corn torillas stuffed with pulled pork and topped with the above chopped items, lettuce and grated cheese, made to order......unbeatable.

But I defend to the death your right to not like tacos.

26. I love tacos, salsa, tostadas, etc. but,

the one thing that will ruin it for me is cilantro. All other toppings, ingredients, great! But I detest cilantro. And sometimes it's mixed in beforehand.

Anyone else who hates cilantro? lol

30. I'm appalled.

Fresh cilantro is my favorite herb. It tastes so......clean. I can hardy eat tacos without it. I have had to lately since I haven't grown any this year and keep forgetting to buy it.

<note to self: buy cilantro next shopping trip>

Now, French's mustard I detest so I can relate to anyone who refuses to put it on a hot dog but cilantro on Mexican food? Perhaps you should be sent to one of secret Muslim Obama's Fema camps for reeducation and surgery on your tastebuds. (I jest, of course.)

It's funny how some people can absolutely love the taste of something and others hate it. I do know a couple other people who hate cilantro. I think the ones who hate it, really, really hate it. Strange world!

enjoy a good one. And I would be fine with a taco truck on my corner as long as it's not a Taco Bell truck.

If Trump ate a taco, would he eat it with knife and fork like he eats pizza?

10. With all the ingredient combinations available, maybe you just haven't found the right taco?

Starting with the tortillas, they come in both sweet and savory varieties. Tortillas come in several different in varieties of flour, corn, and many other ingredients, and in many sizes that can be either steamed, fried or baked, and served crispy, soft, or something in between. Then the choice of all the different tortilla flavors and colors from the traditional white and yellow, to tasty and beautiful colors of tortillas like green from spinach, poblano or cilantro, orange from carrots, pink sriracha, red chile peppers, blue corn, and even an exotic black rice tortilla.

The protein filling mixtures are prepared in so many ways for an endless variety of any meats, fish, seafood, legumes, eggs and cheese, seasoned from mild, to spicy, to OMG call 911! Veggie and bean fillings offer lots of vegan choices as well. Then the toppings... everything! Essentially a taco is still just a sandwich, and from the minimalist plain Juanita taco, to the maxed out, two handed, stuffed and loaded masterpiece, you really can find the perfect taco to match your own preferences.

Makes my favorite taco. (I'm Pennsylvania Dutch). With real summer tomatoes and plenty of cheese and sour cream, nothing better!

13. I don't like them either.

And I think its from having my kids make that awful Old El Paso mix which stinks to high heavens.

And I'm not fond of even a better quality taco. It isn't the fillings, I just don't like that crunchy experience.

25. IMHO tortillas shouldn't be crunchy

Small corn tortillas, as fresh as you can get them, heated on a hot grill for a few seconds on each side then filled (but not overfilled) and eaten asap - that's how we do them in these parts! None of those TexMex/Taco Bell stale fried "shells" that break up and get the innards all over the place when you bite into them. And none of those flour excuses either (well, maybe for fish tacos) - save those for burritos and those so-called wraps.

They're pretty much the perfect food.

I think most people that don't like them haven't been to a place that had the real thing.

19. If all you've ever eaten are Taco Bell tacos, I understand

A taco done right is one where you take a tortilla and load it up with your favorite food, wrap the tortilla around it as best you can and eat it. What's not to like?

I'd rather get a shawarma and some falafel or perhaps a nice kabob
