Why do gringos like the flour ones so much?

Corn is so much better tasting.

Hell no, corn tortillas taste like you're eating concrete mix.


But I like wheat to both. Took a little to get used to, though.

Actually the corn torts are more traditional than teh flour ones.

I look Mexican and when I go out to eat, they rarely ask me if I want corn or flour and just serve me the corn torts because they assume I will only eat corn. If I order flour, I get some wierd looks.

Racist bastages.....

Our local Mexicano place at least puts out both the gringo and tradicionales menu...I piss 'em off by getting a traditional item and gringoizing it.

youve probably never had the corns....most Mexican restaurants that cater to gringos dont even ask, or serve them.

I'm a gringo and ALWAYS go for the corn tortilla. In fact I prefer the SPANISH tortilla overall.

Yep.

I like flour better, honestly. They're just softer.

And there's no such thing as hard tacos.
