Tacos are good 24/7. Lately I've been making "Asian" tacos by cooking the beef in soy and orange sauce. So good.

best breakfast food is pizza... day old... asian and taco does not compute for me.. the whole point of taco is eating MEXICAN food... if I wanted something with soy, I'd do sushi, just adding a corn tortilla still makes it sushi... or an cornroll but not a taco...

I love tacos. There is an annual group ride in NYC, called 'Tour de Taco'. It hits the best authentic ethnic taco places around Queens & Brooklyn. I went this past year; it was awesome. You can see photos from the ride at instagram with hashtag: #tourdetaco

While I do tend to agree with your pizza comment... I also eat tacos for breakfast... and burritos too. But I make them suitable for the meal at that time of day... I make breakfast tacos and breakfast burritos.

Breakfast tacos are corn tortillas heated on a dry flat top, with cheese sprinkled on, pico de gallo salsa and a quick scrambled egg on top. Fold it over and enjoy. Try your own variations.

Burritos can hold anything from beans and eggs to potatoes and cheese to whatever you have on hand.

Denying the use of filled corn or flower tortillas as a breakfast item, is like saying bread can't be toasted and served for breakfast either. BTW, I had tamales and eggs just this morning, with a side of black beans.

I bet there's a pretty big latino population there. Here in Chicago too. Tons of awesome Mexican joints in the city. The best ones are byob.

Goes without saying, since I live in California, favorite Christmas breakfast involves a heap of tamales... neighbors and family come over and we peel and eat away! I also don't mind a good breakfast burrito... eggs, cheese, pico de gallo, maybe cilantro if I have some handy.

Windchaser its hard to believe you never had sushi before... it comes in many forms, shape and sizes; generally involves rice (flavored with mirin), and then combos of ingredients such as fish (generally sashimi or raw fish), or vegetables, nori, and even egg. Japanese breakfast (I am half japanese) involves a rice ball with a plum in side or rice with seasoned scrambled eggs on top wrapped in nori (dried seaweed) and miso soup. A really popular "new age" sushi is "California roll" - rice, avocado, crab...

Sorry, but Albuquerque is the furthest west I've been. Both sound quite tasty. Only had them in WI and MN.

Other than Baja... I think California sortof started the fish taco craze... Rubio's was first. I actually know the owner. They use a breaded/fried fish, soft (not fried) corn tortilla, cabbage and white sauce. Wahoo's is healthier... grilled fish but same shell... I think of Rubio's as fish stick in a corn shell... but better. They also provide a roasted chipotle sauce that is to die for!

Might have to do Rubio's for dinner!

Went to a gathering of my wife's family... they came from all over... it was hosted here in Carlsbad, CA... and the cooks for the day were from San Diego... they served fish tacos. Folks from way north or anywhere east had a hard time with the concept of "fish tacos." "Wha's a fish taco???" Everybody tried them ('cept for the veggie folks) and they were pronounced "tasty."

I hear it all the time in the airport... "so what is it with San Diego and "fish tacos..." "ewwwww." There is a Rubios right in the airport.

To the folks visiting from distant areas... ya gotta try 'em. That's the bottom line.

Gotta admit I miss 'em... a tofu taco just isn't the same. (actually I generally go for black beans and a hunk of avocado... with salsa and cabbage of course.)

We made our own tamales this year... for the first time... amazing success. Far easier than I thought. We had two different fillings. Pork and cheese for some and a mushroom/poblano/zucchini/cheese filling for me.

I was really surprised at how well the masa worked, and how it swelled up and filled the corn husks. What we put together and thought was a bit loose and runny, turned into wonderful tamales with a great center filling. Family was quite impressed even with the veggie tamales. (poblano and mushrooms just work.)

I foresee at least one "tamale prep party" a month. The basics to make tamales are quite simple... but the action of filling and rolling are best done in an assembly line manner... hence many hands make light work... or "a tamale party." GRIN

Try Pedro's on Coast Hwy in San Clemente. Ask for the homemade salsa, don't use the packets.

Like how they get soft after sitting under beef, cheese, etc? Most places try to avoid that, but if you pile all the junk on the chips, they'll get soft.
