taco shells

Grab a skillet and place 1 cup of corn oil in the bottom of the skillet. Then take the corn tortillas and fry them up creating a taco shell. Do this by first frying up half of the tortilla for a few seconds and then fold over the other half creating a taco shell. Fry for a few minutes until crispy and then flip and fry the other half. Drain the excess oil and then place on a paper towel to cool and let the oil drain off.
