It's my second favorite day in October! Today is National Taco Day, which means you can eat as many tacos as you want with no consequences! Ok... that might be a lie, but the truth is that Americans LOVE tacos. According to National Today, 95% of people say they enjoy eating tacos. The number one most popular taco filling is steak, followed by beef/lamb/goat and chicken.
