Denver Post sportswriter John Henderson visits San Antonio for work and develops a fascination for that city's great contribution to Tex-Mex cuisine, the humble breakfast taco: "I can't imagine trying to drive with cheddar and beans flowing down my wrist but in San Antonio, the traditions of neighboring Mexico clash with fast-paced modern American society. I often saw people driving through downtown in the morning with a taco nearing their mouth. It's messier than a cellphone but not nearly as annoying. "It doesn't take up too much of your time when you're rushing," Torres said. "You call, it's ready, you pick it up and go."
