Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Tortilla King Proclaims That Denver Is a Taco Town
Rich Schneider knows tortillas. His family does, too. In 1960, Schneider's family acquired Raquelitas Tortillas, which now dishes out Mexico's favorite export to upwards of 1,100 restaurants across Colorado. It's a far cry from the early days, when Schneider says non-Mexican chefs he tried to sell on tortillas would throw them in his face (literally). Fortunately we've come a long way, amigos -- so long that Schneider has officially dubbed Denver a "taco town." Take it from the expert.
