I have to say, my fear of frying is more to do with wasting all that delicious oil that you need for frying. I’ve heard you can reuse it a couple of times, but I always burn something in there, and you can never get the burn smell/taste out of it
Mmm…tacos. These look wonderful. My mom has been making taco shells just like this since I was tiny. You’ll never go back to store-bought shells again! To get the shape right takes a little practice with the tongs- dipping one half of the tortilla in the oil first and once that side has firmed a bit, dipping in the other side while you grab the crisped side with the tongs and hold down any air bubbles that may have formed.
i love that your mom made tacos for you though she’d never have one. lovely!
also lovely, is the Orechiette al Forno recipe. i’ve been meaning to tell you i made it and, really, who needs sausage? yummy.
Looks like you made what we here in Texas call Puffy Tacos… I think technically you use uncooked corn tortilla dough for those, but they’re very similar. I have to agree… that makes an amazing taco shell!
