Are Hot Dogs Actually Tacos?

There’s been an eternal debate on the Internet over whether hot dogs are sandwiches.  And a few days back, the “Washington Post” decided to pour gasoline on that debate by adding a new option.

They say a HOT DOG is actually a TACO.
Think about it.  When you break it down to the absolute core, a sandwich is two pieces of any starch with any filling in between.  So a hot dog shouldn’t really qualify because it’s a filling between just one, folded starch.

But that SHOULD make a hot dog a taco, since it fits that definition better:  Filling inside of a folded starch.

And here’s one more “food that’s really another food” to blow your mind for the day: Vanilla soy lattes are really three-bean soup.

Here are a few others, if you want to keep going down this rabbit hole: 

  • Enchiladas are sushi
  • cherry pie is a bread bowl
  • a corn dog is a calzone
  • a jelly donut is a calzone
  • fried rice is a salad
