Sure, you've had beef taco, chicken fajitas or pork burritos, but have you ever devoured a crab taco?  The crab meat gives a nice neutral backdrop to the flavor of the taco. You can add in what you desire, such as pico de gallo, salsa, grated cheese, shredded lettuce, sour cream, avocado, cilantro sprigs, thinly sliced radish, peppers, onions or even pickled jalapenos.   The sky is the limit. Just remember to keep the ingredients fresh and not to load too much on. A little goes a long way, and allows you to get a burst of flavor in each bite.

A new Taco Bell restaurant could be open in the Greencastle area before the end of the year. “I think we should be open this year. I hope before Christmas,” Tom Cook, director of development for BurgerBusters Inc., said Friday. BurgerBusters Inc., based in Virginia Beach, Va., operates franchisee organizations for Taco Bell in North America. “If all goes well, we could have the Taco Bell up and running by the fourth quarter of this year,” he said. Until you get all of your permits, it's difficult to judge when the store will open, Cook said.

This wonderfully easy dish is something your guests will enjoy time and time again, and they'll think you spent extra time in the kitchen. You most certainly can prepare the main ingredients a day ahead and have this ready to serve when your guests arrive, giving you more time with them and less time in the kitchen. The keys to this dish are fresh bright ingredients and less than seven ingredients, not including salt and pepper. I will add the serrano or jalapeno pepper in optional, so you can take it to eight ingredients, if you so desire.

I normally don't approve of marginally pointless lawsuits, but in this case I'm willing to make an exception. A California woman is suing Taco Bell for hinting around that its beef filling might contain some actual beef. Which it does, of course, but only 35 percent's worth, the lawsuit contends. The rest is filler, all the stuff you would expect — corn, soy, oats, and so on. The only thing that really grabs your attention is the "anti-dusting agent. " As is getting to be the case in these matters, the reaction to the news is far more interesting than the news itself: 1. A Miami newspaper noted that Taco Bell had pulled its advertising from a promiscuous television show on MTV, but then made a pretty good argument that Taco Bell is worse for you than the show.

A Tuesday afternoon fire in an exterior wall at Taco Bell at 1600 Wesel Blvd. caused about $5,000 in damages, a Hagerstown Fire Department official said. Firefighters had to remove a section of the rear outside wall to put out the fire, Capt. Mark Cleck said. It is unclear what caused the fire, which fire marshals are investigating, Cleck said. The fire, which was reported at 5:09 p.m., caused light smoke to accumulate in the restaurant, Cleck said. Taco Bell workers had evacuated everyone from the building by the time firefighters arrived.
