You'll never eat a regular taco shell again! So simple to make, and the taste and texture is out of this world!! Since the ingredients are minimal, it really is all about the technique. I prefer to use tongs that have the heat resistant silicone tips (not metal, they tend to break the shells). Shells come out crispy on the outside and chewy on the insdie. Fill with your favorite meat and toppings. I prefer plain old ground beef with taco seaoning, but have also made chicken. 6-8 shells works with about 1 lb. of meat (give or take, depending on how full you like your taco).
