Not all Latinos Grew up on Tacos

Fox host assumed that all Latinos grew up on tacos, an erroneous assumption. There are 20 Spanish speaking countries, with different histories, with their own unique cuisines. Tacos are not a Puerto Rican cuisine, no Chilean, Colombian or Argentine.  Because Latinos/Hispanics are all lumped into one category, and because of the lack of knowledge about our neighbors to the South and Latinos in US, assumptions are made.  What do you think?
