Tacos are a delicious and easy-to-make meal. In this episode of “Best Bites,” we show you how to make tacos four different ways, all packed with fresh, healthy and colorful ingredients.

While the origins of the taco aren’t totally clear, Jeffrey M. Pilcher, professor of food history at the University or Toronto and taco expert, once told Smithsonian Magazine that he believes that 18 century Mexican silver miners are the likely inventors of the taco. However, it was Mexican Americans that revamped the taco and arguably Glen Bell, the founder of Taco Bell, that popularized it for the mass American market.
