From EatingWell:  May/June 2007

Surprisingly easy and far better-tasting than store-bought taco shells.

6 servings, 2 taco shells each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wrap 4 tortillas in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. (Alternatively, wrap in foil and heat in the preheated oven until steaming, 5 to 7 minutes.) Coat both sides with cooking spray; sprinkle a little chili powder and salt on one side.
  3. Drape each tortilla over a panel on a baked-taco rack and bake until crispy and brown, 7 to 10 minutes. (Or see Kitchen Tip.)
  4. Remove the shells from the rack and repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the remaining 8 tortillas.
