I'm not talking about "authentic" old-country tacos, hand-picked from a single 450-year-old taco tree by Juan Valdez' great grandpappy.

Nooooo....

I mean "old school" suburban, midwestern American tacos, like your mom used to make in the 70's and 80's out of ground beef, with the hard yellow-corn taco shells.

Tacos, mutherfucker!

Well if you do, may I strongly recommend Pace's Taco Cooking Sauce.  That shit is killer, man.  Beats the fuck out of the taco "kits" you see at the grocery store, Old El Paso or whatever.

Just brown a pound of ground beef, drain, add a cup of the Pace, and simmer.  Dice your maters, shred your lettuce, and warm your shells while simmering.

Dee-licious!

We make em once a month or so.

Try the Pace Salsa Verde.  

Of course, I also stew chickens with tomatoes, chiles, onions, garlic then shred.  Purée cooking liquid and veggies for a salsa.  Place shredded meat, salsa, diced onion, and some cilantro in a doubled warm corn tortilla.  Maybe some cotija if I'm feeling froggy.

I make the hardshell tacos at home from time to time, and I love all kinds of tacos.  We grew up with soft corn tortillas, and those are still my favorite.  I've got a pound of ground venison thawing out in the fridge right now for tacos, now that you mention them.  I really like the fresh garden tomatoes with shredded lettuce on them, too.  It was only in recent years that I discovered "street tacos".

You bet.  We have them about once a week.

Quick and easy, and it's homegrown tomato time.

A "softshell taco" is a damn burrito.  

Unless you quickly pan-fry corn tortillas in a little oil, so they're soft, and wrap everything up in that.  But those are probably called enchigatos or some damn thing.

I've been buying street tacos off trucks for 30 years.

Of course, we only knew them as tacos.

My Mom, bless her heart, can burn water.

However, by the time I was about 12, I was making tortillas from masa flour (which was NOT easy to find in southeast Missouri at the time).

We had taco night on Saturday. Can't beat Old El Paso just like moms used to make

ETA I have noticed they taste different than they used to. I think I'll try something else next time.

Take a soft taco shell, smear it with re-fried beans, place hard shell in center, fill hard shell as normal.

Eat, and enjoy

I like dirty white people tacos sometimes. I certainly don't call them 'old school tacos' They are dirty white people tacos

I love street tacos / real tacos

I also love weird street tacos that white people make like fried chicken with weird aioli bullshit sauces

I also like deep fried tacos

Tacos are awesome

If you mean "buttered" with re-fried beans then I agree.

Or you can just butter the inside of the crispy taco shell with re-fried beans.    Either way will hold everything together while you're eating and the taste is just wonderful.

Pace's is good. I prefer thin strips of stewing beef instead of ground beef.

Use half as much Pace's on diced chicken breast for variation.

Layer of refried beans for "cement", meat of choice, shredded lettuce, diced tomato, shredded extra sharp cheddar and salsa topping.

Sopapillas for dessert. Punch a hole in the end and pour in some honey.
