What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
If there’s one food that embodies Mexican cuisine, it’s the taco. From the soft (or hard!) tortilla on the outside, to the flavorful fillings wrapped within, the taco’s ingredients also tell the story of how Mexican food revolutionized American diets in D.C. and beyond. Kojo explores how the past has influenced cooking in the D.C. area and how we can make the most of what’s in our grocery aisles to create “authentic” Mexican meals.
