Celebrate National Taco Day with authentic Mexican tacos from America's Taco Shop

When America Corrales first came to the U.S. from her native Mexico, her most precious possession was a collection of her mother's hand-written recipes.

For nine years, America shared them only with her friends and husband Terry Bortin. They would dream together about someday serving these home-cooked meals in a fast food Mexican restaurant of their own.

That dream became a reality in 2008, when America and Terry opened the first America's Taco Shop in Phoenix.
