I made a video on how to make your own taco shells at home in about 5 to 10 minutes! Here's the link. Blue namers?

 So, uh, he made a hot tortilla?  Is it crispy? 

I'll try it.  I did cringe a little though when he was scraping that metal spoon across his nonstick skillet.  Would it kill the guy to get some coated tongs?

 I thought this was fucking common knowledge? Back in the 80s when Ortega was the only company making shells, your alternative was to fry corn tortillas, which taste way more delicious than the pre packaged store crap. The only thing is, they'll suck up tons of oil.

RE: CW's comment, you have to really fry the tortilla, not just heat it up. You can also do the same thing if you wanna make 'homemade' tortilla chips. Instead of folding the tortilla, you cook it flat and chop it into four sections.

 So it's like getting one of those molds and deep frying a tortilla then.
