How to Make Taco Shells

Method

  1. Mix all together with hand beater.

  2. Pour 1/4 cup into a hot greased skillet and fry like pancakes. You can use the same ingredients to make taco shells!

  3. Heat a few cm of oil in a heavy pan over medium to medium-high heat.

  4. Use tongs to place one tortilla at a time into the oil. It should start to sizzle right away.

  5. Cook for about 15 seconds, then flip over and fold the shell in half, holding in place with the tongs until crispy, about 15 seconds. You may need a little practice at first.

  6. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with salt while still hot. Use for tacos right away, or they may become chewy.
