After reading a lot of the reviews I'm so impressed at everyone's creative methods and certainly will try them. I started frying my taco shells like this a year ago and prefer it. I used to fry the old way which was filling a tortilla with meat then frying. Those are really good but a lot heavier and more fattening being they carry more oil in the meat. This new method the tacos fry up very light, very crunchy, and very addictive. If you over fry them and get them real crunchy, the bottoms crack and everything falls out of the taco so fry but not super hard. A real bonus is that they don't pop oil because there is no meat inside to cause oil to pop-I used to hate that. Get your oil hot but not too hot since the tortillas will fry really fast and burn. Sometimes when I don't feel like fussing with the details of tacos, I throw everything in a bowl, fry up some tortillas that I cut in squares, and have a taco salad-same taste but less work. The downside to frying the shells only is that they are so good you'll want lots of them and so will your family-that means a long time at the stove.
