Story

The Taco Paradox

Imagine an ordinary carnitas taco. Now, replace the salsa with ketchup. Still a taco? Great, now substitute the braised pork with a pork sausage. Not so sure? Finally, replace the warm, hand-made flour tortilla with a soft, flour bun. That's a hot dog!

When is a taco no longer a taco? This thought experiment we've entitled Theseus' Taco has tormented us philoso-foodies since fast food chains began taking major liberties with the taco. Corn or flour tortilla is one thing, but a Nacho Cheese Doritos shell is tough for us to stomach. Now add Fritos garnishing.

We're not snobby taco traditionalists; our best friend is a Choco Taco. But we are apprehensive about "innovating" on such timeless taste achievements as the taco. The Taco Mania Crate celebrates the taco the way it was intended to be—delicious.

Taco Night, Every Night!

The difference between Taco Mania and taco mundania starts at the bottom. Authentic tortillas are the proverbial bread and butter of an amazing taco night, because everyone judges a taco by its tortilla.

The best hosts channel the pressure of taco night into their tortillas with this 6.5" tortilla press and 1lb of authentic masa flour. The accompanying 9" tortilla warmer allows the masa masterpieces to be served toasty, as they were intended to be.

A Table of Tacos

Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales: Flavors from the Griddles, Pots, and Streetside Kitchens of Mexico is Chef Santibañez's taco thesis, our favorite cookbook for authentic, homemade Mexican food. It includes easy to follow lessons and recipes to make taste bud-tizzying tacos.

And Formosa's hot sauces are the perfect trio for topping off tacos. Formosa combines healthy ingredients with slow-cooked, traditional technique for fresh, flavorful sauces like habanero, chipotle, and jalapeno.

The Taco Mania Crate is a full-fledged fiesta of flavor. It's Taco Night done right.

    Loved it

    I just got this for my boyfriend and it came today. I love these crates the only problem was the products inside were so heavy the bottom of the crate broke out. Thankfully the tape didn't fully rip so it was somewhat intact. He loved it so much!! And when his mom found out she was so jealous that I'm going to get her one too. I love these ideas so much I plan on getting more!

    Great Gift!

    I was very pleased with this gift that I purchased for my fiancé. He loved everything in this box, especially the Formosa Hot Sauce. We have purchased additional Formosa Hot Sauce because it was so good! Great Job.

    Our crate fell apart

    The bottom of the crate fell out before my husband could open it, so that was disappointing. It tore the bag of flour open as well, but after cleanup he thought it was a cool gift. We also got a jerkgram and the exotic jerky from Alaska with the knife. He absolutely loved those and had to wrestle the kids for the jerky.

    Nacho Average Gift

    Okay... so it's not a nacho kit, but the next best thing are TACOS! I received this as a gift and loved it. The process of making the tortillas was fun and easy (and delicious to boot). The sauces were really good and have been staples in my household.

    I ordered one for my brother and my cousin. I can't wait to watch them open their crates on Christmas.
