baked taco shells
Who wants a taco?
Tacos are one of those delightfully easy meals to whip up, and most of us generally already have everything in the kitchen that we could want to make a good taco...everything, that is, except the taco shells.
I don't know about you, but I don't keep taco shells on hand. When we want to eat tacos, I generally have to run to the store to pick up a package of shells. Inevitably, most of the shells will be broken and all of them will be stale.
Kinda takes the fun out of tacos...
Today, I wanted to whip up some taco fixings for dinner, but I didn't feel like going to the store. Here's what I did instead.
I wrapped foil around two rods on my oven rack (for cleanliness purposes). Don't do this while the oven is hot...ouch!
I had some leftover corn tortillas in the refrigerator that I whipped out. I placed my tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds to get them good and pliable. Then, I draped them over my foiled oven rods. I did this all without preheating the oven...worked just fine.
I baked these for about 10 minutes (or until crispy) at 400 degrees. They turned out beautifully!
