Re-worked from Eating Well
Step 1: What You Will Need
- corn tortillas
- frying pan or griddle
- non-stick spray
- muffin tins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Heat the Tortilla
On a medium heat, allow the tortilla to just get warm (about 5-10 seconds) and flip.
Step 3: Flip and Spray
Flip the tortilla and heat the other side (about 5-10 seconds)
Tip: both sides of the tortilla need to be sprayed with non-stick spray. After you flip, you can spray a little on the top.
Step 4: Remove From Heat
Take the tortilla and remove it using a spatula. You will want to flip it onto the muffin tin, turned upside down, into the open space between four cups.
Step 5: Form the Shell
While still hot, press into the space between the cups. It should be evenly opened.
Step 6: Spray the Other Side
After forming the shell, spray this side of the shell lightly.
Repeat filing the pan with more shells.
Step 7: Cook the Shells
Place the tins inside the oven for about ten minutes. Keep a watch on them so they don't burn. You want them to cook just before turning brown.
Step 8: Cool and Stuff
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Stuff with taco meat, lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.
Any leftovers can be stored in an air right container or large freezer ziploc bag.
