EatingWell Crispy Taco Shells

EatingWell Crispy Taco Shells
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Surprisingly easy and far better-tasting than store-bought taco shells.

Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes
  • 12 
    6-inch corn tortillas
  •  
    Canola oil cooking spray
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    chili powder, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wrap 4 tortillas in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. (Alternatively, wrap in foil and heat in the preheated oven until steaming, 5 to 7 minutes.) Coat both sides with cooking spray; sprinkle a little chili powder and salt on one side.
  3. Drape each tortilla over a panel on a baked-taco rack and bake until crispy and brown, 7 to 10 minutes. (Or see Kitchen Tip.)
  4. Remove the shells from the rack and repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the remaining 8 tortillas.

 

Tip

Working with 6 tortillas at a time, wrap in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. Lay the tortillas on a clean work surface and coat both sides with cooking spray. Then carefully drape each tortilla over two bars of the oven rack. Bake at 375°F until crispy, 7 to 10 minutes.
