is a traditional Mexican dish
comprising a rolled or folded, pliable tortilla
filled with meat (generally grilled beef or variety meats such as tongue and brains), chile sauce, guacamole
and garnishes such as pico de gallo
. It may also contain just about any other dish that lends itself to it. Basically it must be chopped and fairly dry. There are many subvarieties, and most of them have a certain set of traditional fillings.
Americanized versions may use a deep-fried crispy tortilla shell, and include ingredients such as lettuce and cheese. The taco made with a crispy taco shell is probably descended not from the taco, but from the tostada, which it resembles more closely.
