Quick Taco Shells and Homemade Taco Seasoning...

Saturday night was casual tacos night.  Simple and yummy but we still managed to do our own "thing".

First we made our own taco seasoning because we had all the ingredients fresh and on hand.  Its very good and we made enough to keep on hand for the next time or two.

Then we made taco shells from corn tortillas.  We simply put foil on a cookie sheet and staggered the tortillas flat on the sheet.  We set them into a preheated 375F oven for approx. 10 minutes.  They become a little crispy and puff up in spots like they were going to "blow" up.  They were a nice change from the store bought kind.

Out of the oven we simply folded them and they held that shape nicely until they cooled.
Then we were ready to load them up.   Sour cream came next...
Abby was the first one at the table while we were setting up.  Silly kitty.   Great casual meal....
and yummy....
Do you make your own tacos?  Judi xoxo
