BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- October Sundays may be made for football, but Oct. 4 is set aside to honor the staple of Tex-Mex cuisine as well: The taco.

The origin of the Taco is largely unknown, but taco expert Jeffrey M. Pilcher says the word dates back to the 18th century in the Mexican silver mines and the small explosives used to extract ore. Others believe the taco originates to the 16th century before the Spanish arrived. according to nationaltacoday.com.

Regardless of when, or how the taco came into existence, it has become a favorite throughout the U.S. with over 4.5 billion eaten annually. That's enough tacos to stretch to the moon and back, nationaltacoday.com said.
