Directions

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet.
  2. Carefully add half of the tortilla (folded into a taco shape) and fry until golden (you will need to hold up the tortilla half the entire time.).
  3. Using tongs, carefully flip the tortilla to fry the other side until golden (continue holding the free edge to maintain the shape).
  4. Remove from skillet and balance the shell (Teepee style) on a paper towel until set.
  5. Repeat, placing each made taco shell on top of the last to drain oil and set.
  6. After they are all set, you can pile on the taco goods and enjoy!
