Selling Taco Shells #tacotuesday #sonnet

She sells taco shells on Tuesdays by the score.
Mexican food addicts who prefer to cook at home
Don’t join the gypsies who ‘taquerias’ roam.
Though eateries have secret ingredients lore.

Tacos, enchiladas and sides of beans and rice
Are the basic foods of the numbered plates.
Natives to the food will sneer, reveal their hates
For foods poorly prepared: hot sauce does not suffice.

Dishes prepared at home by Mexican cooks
Vary in taste and seasoning from local fare
Like the sham that cheap corn chips dare
Imitation home-made tortillas, the crooks.

Commercial taco trends food purists rile:
Ignore critiques, stuff your mouth, tacophile.
