Bill, thanks for the links to those threads! HollyDolly mentioned a Tex-Mex book by Rob Walsh, on the first thread, and that he said this was the "old way of making them". He was right. This was back before it was called Tex-Mex though. And maybe back before Kansas, and Texas, were states? Now quite a few places make them the old way but maybe more correct to call it an Old Northern Mexico way of making tacos? But, someone smart at JitB did think this was a good idea of how to make a Taco.
The second thread about the In a Tub tacos had pictures but to bad they no longer work. There was some good info about how to make these fried kinda Tacos on that thread!
But now that you mention it... Frito Pie, Fritos, Dr. Pepper, Tex Mex, Chili Rice, and the Sausage Roll Up also came from Texas. I know I forgot a few things. :~)
