Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Friday said he assumed that the network's Latina meteorologist "grew up on tacos," even though it is not a traditional food in her native country of Nicaragua.

To celebrate National Taco Day, Fox & Friends asked Fox News Weather team member Maria Molina, who was born in Nicaragua and grew up in South Florida, to host a segment explaining how to make tacos.

"So what are the tips we need to know?" Kilmeade asked Molina. "You grew up on tacos, correct?"

"No, I did not grow up on tacos!" Molina shot back. "I'm Nicaraguan. It's not a native food."
