Innovative Solution #1:
Frugality in the kitchen is of utmost importance to me. My problem: I prefer hard taco shells and my husband prefers soft. The question: To buy an entire pack of crunchy taco shells or not to buy? Hmmm why waste 6 perfectly good shells? My solution: Make my own!
Here’s how I did it. I pre-heated the oven to 400 degrees; microwaved two corn tortillas 30 seconds until they were pliable; draped the tortillas over a deep oven safe dish; and cooked for about 15 minutes or until they were crunchy.
I used a staple that I always have in my house, plus they weren’t deep-fried. A double bonus. I actually preferred these to store bought.
