The Crusher will be very happy about this

In theory, painters tape is edible.

Know what works?  A spot of cheese, heated just to melting.  Acts like glue to hold burrito shut.

Similar tip for hard corn chip tacos.  To stop them  breaking on 1st bite, a bit of cheese on the bottom of the shell then microwave for just 10-15 seconds to get it melted, then will stop the bottom from breaking, shell will still be crunchy.

I think @slats lives in Mexico. You live in Northeast Florida. (yuck)

Going with his opinion over yours.....

He lives in Cancun, hardly Mexico.  I’ve spent more time in real Mexico than smug Slats ever has and hard tacos are delicious, I don’t care what they say in Mexico and corn tortillas are disgusting.

Best burrito I ever experienced--either in the U.S. or Mexico--was at La Cumbre in San Francisco.

Hard corn taco shells are an American abomination. You all deserve to have taco fixings all over your lap if you’re eating it in one of those. 

I would say you are buying the wrong hard shells. Try Old El Paso.

Only when it’s clear that I’m 100% correct.

I’d never live in Cancún, either. I’m in a really nice town called Puerto Morelos. Well, not today, we decided to take a taxi and ferry over to Isla Mujeres for the weekend.

Burritos aren’t really Mexican, either. The sign on that place is probably true (and I do love a good burrito).

slats, this thing was gigantic.  The size of a newborn.  The place was a really stripped down joint.  Great carne asada, fresh sauces, and awesome agua frescas.  But this was back in the 90s.  No idea if the place is any good now.

What are you guys paying, 200 pesos a night? 

The hotel is actually gorgeous, but that’s the way in Mexico. Showplaces can be right next to abandoned buildings. That property across the street is probably worth a million US if anyone could figure out how to buy it.

I've been here 7 years haha I know how it is. But in my experience, with a view like that, it's been a pretty good deal. I've heard good things about Isla Mujeres but I don't get to the beach often enough

That view looks amazing to me!  Forget living for a nice Facebook foto the water looks like a fun place to be lol. 

I’m in walking distance from the boarder right now and it’s not Mexican at all…

Except the phenomenal breakfast tacos!  Well, maybe they are more not really Texas or Mexico goodness lol. (No it’s not TexMex either lol)

I like to take my burritos and put them in the oven after wrapping.  Baste with a little butter and the tortilla turns crispy, flakey, and sealed shut.  

That's  a chimi-changa basically

Go to San Jose Del Cabo every year and have had some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten.  The best places aren't in hotels or the likes, they are the mom and pop spots that most tourist wouldn't even consider. Been going there for 15 years, and will keep going there. It's so much better than Cancun by a mile

In Mexico, burritos are thinner so they never break. I'd be embarrassed to eat a burrito with that tape to be honest. 

Like eating NY style pizza with a knife and fork

Finally, a scientific breakthrough to be excited about.

It was already mentioned that Crusher went to M.I.T. (Massapequa Institute of Tacos) so I'm sure he was aware of this, or maybe even had a role in developing it.
