Kale is heartier, arguably healthier and has a lot more versatality than lettuce. It is so good for you, you almost become a pristine naked hippie doing yoga on the beach in Maui after just one bite. And it’s magically delicious. Flavor can’t be beat.
Authenticity is nice and fine but cooking should be fun. “Fusion is confusion” is a stupid rhyme. I made a new rhyme for you: “Suspicious can be delicious.” Just make your tacos delicious and let the food police argue about ruining tradition.
