Crispy, crunchy, lightly salted oven baked taco shells. I am not sure exactly where or when I first saw this recipe for oven baked taco shells, but I have been in love with it ever since. It’s a simple idea really drape corn tortillas over an oven rack and cook up until nice and crispy to create a hard taco shell without all the added fat of frying. The key to making sure these taco shells actually come out and that you don’t get a broken, burning corn tortilla is to heat up the tortillas beforehand so they are nice and pliable. Then add your favorite flavors and you are on your way.
