How to fry corn tortillas
DIY hard and puffy corn tortillas, flat and folded on a cutting board.

A good while back we posted these crunchy ground beef and cheesy tacos on the blog and we got a lot of comments about people wanting the recipe/instructions for the shell portion of the tacos. Today we finally have the instructions for you guys! Last week we posted a recipe for homemade corn tortillas. We then took those same tortillas and fried them up to make our hard and puffy shells.

While you can deep fry them if you want, you really only need a couple inches of oil, in a large and tall sided skillet/pan, to make them! The key for specifically the puffy taco shells is to make sure you’re frying up raw corn tortillas, so it’s important that you use fresh tortillas (preferably ones you made yourself). If you try using the prepackaged kinds, you’ll just get regular hard shells…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing…they just won’t have that “puffy” taco shell look or texture. We loaded ours up with the same ground beef mixture plus fixins’ as from the previous recipe, because the combination is just so tasty..a little trashy, but so so good. 🙂 Enjoy! xx, Jenny
