Taco Titan dies

Posted by / Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

There are a few people that are greatly affected by the death of Taco Bell founder Glen W. Bell, Jr., who passed away Monday, January 18 at the age of 86. Bell left an impact on the restaurant world as one of the leading founders of fast food, particularly Mexican fast food. If you don’t think so, check the numbers.

More than 36.8 million consumers eat Taco Bell each week. Within the United States alone, more than 2 billion tacos and 1 billion burritos are served each year.

Good thing Taco Bell has a fresco menu. Though the drive-thru diet is questionable, it does offer healthier foods for those on the run. Jared may have some competition.

When almost a third of the US population is obese, perhaps instead of eating a taco in honor of Bell, try following Bell’s “Recipes for Success.”

Of course, if you’re strapped for cash it may just be all about the Roosevelts.

Sounds delicious! I just came back from mexico last month and find myself addicted to these incredible enchilada recipes now!! Must go back next year sometime, I think, and this time head off the beaten path a little. Looking to reading more!

Thanks for that. I moved away from mexico when I was really young, and I really want to rediscover my heritage. I’ve been trying out a lot of random mexican recipes, and the best I’ve found yet is this taco recipe – it totally remind me of my childhood. I dont remember much of it except for the spicy smells and delicious food on every street corner.
