Great homemade tacos.

Top Review by ChefDLH

Homemade tacos are the best. I used this recipe and omitted the kidney beans and added diced sweet onions for flavor and they were great. The taco shells when purchased fresh and fried are awesome. One need not sacrifice health as you can pan fry in a tiny bit of olive oil and the result is perfection. I like mine less crispy so I pan fry on medium heat flipping the tortilla often till it has some color on each side. ( I don't submerge) Not hard not soft just right. Thanks for sharing the recipe with everyone.
