taco tacos with homemade taco shells and seasoned taco beef

these simple tacos are made special by making homemade taco shells. it's a super simple technique that adds so much flavor. (feel free to sub store bought or baked shells, i'm just sayin' the fried ones are better, of course.) be sure to have lots of toppings for taco tacos. my three year old loves these.

1 recipe seasoned taco beef
12 corn tortillas

tomato, chopped
onion, chopped
sour cream
shredded cheese
heat a frypan on medium high. when oil is hot and ready for frying, lower in a corn tortilla and soften in the hot oil for about ten seconds, then turn over and fold in half (into a taco shape,) using tongs. fry that side until browned (10-20 sec) then flip it over and finish cooking the other side. remove to a paper towel lined tortilla warmer. (i told you i use this alot.) repeat until all tortillas are fried. -if you don't heat the tortilla flat in the oil first, you will have trouble with your taco shells cracking open at the bottom, at the fold.- serve with seasoned taco beef and lots of toppings.
