Origin of these delicious tacos

The cradle of the basket tacos is in the State of Tlaxcala; more precisely, in the municipality of San Vicente, where, by the way, the “Feria del Taco de San Vicente Xiloxochintla” is held every year, on the first Sunday in December.

The oldest taco in the town, Marcial Balderas, was one of the initiators who started selling these tacos riding a basket full of this delicious appetizer on his bike.
