      We've always made our tacos this way, except we usually like our shells soft and so we only fry them for about 10 seconds on each side. And here's a hint for getting the curve and eliminating the grease. Before you start frying, cut paper towels in half. Place a freshly fried tortilla onto one of the paper towel halves and fold the paper towel around the tortilla, putting part of it inside the shell, with the shell folded in half in the classic taco shape. The paper will absorb the grease. It takes a little bit of practice to fry one, wrap one, but after about 4-5 tortillas, you should get the hang of it. In our home, we then unwrap the tortillas at the table so we can keep track of how many tacos we've each eaten. Thanks for posting this great recipe, JuJuBee!

      Oh wow - these were so good!!! I can't believe I've never thought of this, but just goes to show you that sometimes simpler is better! These were very easy to make...we used fajita sized flour shells and they turned out great! I can't wait to try them with corn...we will be making these ALOT! Thanks for the great recipe Juju Bee!

      I am giving this a High 5!!!! You can make them crispy or soft. I do not care about the grease content. Its the fun in it for a good family dinner. I used 2 forks to help keep them apart. Dinner was great. Thank You for a wonderful idea. Hugs

      these were really good!!! the only reason i'm giving them a 4 is because i had a little trouble getting them into the shell shape.they are much better than the store bought ones.thank you for posting,this will be used quite often in my home.
