When I moved to Southern California, there was one thing I learned very quickly: Tacos are cheap, delicious and available EVERYWHERE all the time. Mexican restaurants, taco trucks, taco stands – really there’s no reason to ever make your own tacos when you live in L.A.. However! I love making tacos at home, and with a 3 year old who ‘helps’ in the kitchen, it’s the perfect fun food to prepare. Also, Mexican restaurants here rarely serve hard shell tacos which are my favorite.
