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

AWESOME!!! SEE MY PICTURES

Using the oven rack can be tricky if you were to only use one of the rungs on the grate. So.. as suggested use two!! (see attached Pic) I added some season salt to mine just to kick it up a knotch!

great tips! thanks!

Don't even think about attempting this recipe if your oven rack doesn't have a spacing that equates to a taco-shell-shaped tortilla drape natively. What you will end up with is a flaming ball of goo when the tortillas split and fall onto the heating element.

These are absolutely amazing. I don't have a taco rack so I followed the tip & draped the tortillas over 2 oven rack bars - they were perfect! You could actually eat the tacos without the shell breaking down the middle and all of the ingredients falling out. My husband loved them as well.

I absolutly LOVE this idea! We don't eat tacos because the store bought taco shells are usually stale and broken. I make my own tortillas by cutting a gallon zip-lock bag open and rolling out a ball of Ma-Se-Ca between the plastic. This way I can make my shells bigger then store bought corn tortillas.
