Egg, refried beans, and chorizo with grilled onions, jalapenos, tomatoes + fresh onion and cilantro.

I wouldn't put the Impossible or Beyond stuff on a Taco any more than I would put American Cheese on a taco. Grilled veggies, hibiscus flower and jack fruit all make great Tacos though.

American Cheese on a taco.

One time when I was in about the 6th grade and my school was going to serve us for the first time ever Tacos! We all looked foward to it! The day came and the lunch lady's said something was wrong with the meat, so no meat. Just un-toasted taco shells, lettuce, taco sauce and shredded American cheese! I liked them. :-D Kinda makes me want to make them again for nostalgia's sake. :)

It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.

I almost ALWAYS  liked the school's hot lunch! But then, if it's not a grapefruit it's almost a gimme+!!!!!

Anyone else ever had those Midwest fake tamales? Old skool?
We'd get them from the pop corn truck up town at the park in the evening.... Mid 70s. They were wrapped in paper, greasy as all get out... Bright yellow large grained cornmeal. Mystery meat inside... so tasty!  🤗

No. :(

 Could you find a picture of what they looked like?

If no one objects, I'd like to change the subject line of this thread to something like "Mexican food of all flavors".

Loved those things when I lived in the area. I think we used to get TomTom brand. I've missed them. They opened a Portillo's in Tampa. I always stop for lunch there when I'm in the area. An Italian beef, a Chicago Hot Dog, and a tamale. The tamales taste just the same as I remember. Portillo's will ship them. 40 tamales for $80, 2 day shipping included.

I believe that's a good idea... As long as Craig doesn't mind.

Yes, now that I see the pics. There was a place in Bensenville when I worked at a large golf course (it occupied all of the land lying between Irving Park Rd. and Lake Street) west of O’Hare that had those. Their other Mexican food seemed pretty authentic. Not sure why this was their tamale of choice but we used to knock down a lot of them.

Sometimes I even like those nasty, greasy Hormel tamales in the can! No reason, just crave them sometimes! About 1/2 way thru I toss them, everyone has a thing!😉
