At some point during the day, our thoughts turn to the idea that we need to consume food.

“Ah, but what food?”

Indeed there are many things we could eat, but since it is Tuesday, it seems like a perfect day for tacos.

“Ah, but what kind of taco?”

    I used to be a strictly soft shell taco guy. Every time I went to a taco place it was soft shell all the way. They always seem bigger, more filling, just more stuff in them. You have to be delicate with a hard shell to keep it from breaking while you fill it, but with a soft shell, you just cram it full of stuff. Over the years, my tastes have evolved. Now when I eat a soft shell taco, it is kind of like eating mush. There is no variation to the texture, so everything just melds into one indefinable lump. Now when I walk into a taco joint or make tacos at home, I have to have the hard shell. The meticulous construction of the hard shell taco ensures that there is not too much of any single ingredient. Just the right amount of protein, a sprinkling of cheese, crisp shredded lettuce, juicy tomato, and the all important taco sauce accentuated by a pleasant crunch. Dang it, now I have to go make tacos!

    I picked the third option because although it is technically a hard shell, I absolutely LOVE the Taco Bell Doritos Nacho Cheese shell more than any other shell available. Second is the Chalupa shell they have (which isn’t the same as an actual chalupa if anyone has ever had the actual dish, more like a fluffy yet crunchy taco), and third is double decker (which I can easily make at home).

      If it is “technically a hard shell” then your vote should be “hard shell”

    Despite the occasional messy eating, it’s hard shell all the way.

    I like soft shells provided its a flour tortilla. Corn has to be hard.

    I actually like the Cheezy Gordita Crunch. It’s got all the crunch of a hard taco, but the soft outer shell keeps it from crumbling in my hands. Super convenient.

    Soft flour tortillas are the way to go. It’s the perfect texture.
