Kirc's Taco Shells'

Do you buy the hard corn taco shells in a box?  If you do, try these instead.  They don't taste like cardboard. Everyone loves them.  Once you make them you'll never buy the shells in a box again. Really.

  • White corn tortillas
  • corn oil
  • sea salt

Heat half an inch of oil in an egg pan on medium.  Add one taco shell. Fry each side for 8 seconds. Notice in the photo above that there are large bubbles on most of the shells.  This is what you are after.  But don't brown them- they'll be too hard and a cousin to the cardboard ones you buy in a box. 

Using your tongs in the fry pan, fold the shell in half then place on a plate lined with paper towels.  Add sea salt right away.  Once you've made a dozen of them it's a good idea to start serving.  This way they are still warm.  

What filling ingredients do you serve at your taco bar?
