We all love Taco Tuesday. Families gather around the dinner table, roommates pitch in by bringing their favorite side dish, and girlfriends raise a toast – margaritas in hand. Tacos are a favorite.

Whether you enjoy mild or spicy sauce, yellow or white cheese, pinto or black beans, taco night is something to be celebrated. Because it’s an easy meal to prepare, folks enjoy the delicious delicacy quite often, but with so many ingredients, things inevitably go awry. Do you have a backup plan ready to go when disaster strikes? If not, we’re here to lend a hand.

For example, what happens when spacey Susan forgets the taco shells in the oven, and they come out burnt to a brittle? Turns out, tortillas can help in a pinch. Pop a few fresh tortillas in the toaster to make delicious hard shells in a flash.

Here’s how it works: simply fold your tortillas in half into the shape of a taco shell, and place them in your toaster until you reach the desired crispness. That’s it. Take them out and you’ll have taco shells just as good–or better– than the store bought version.

Are you dying to know the best part?  Because you control the heat and toast time, it’s easy to create your ideal taco shell. If you prefer extra crispy shells, go for it. If you like your shells to be on the softer side, that's possible too. They will come out in the perfect shape – ready for eating. Just add in your choice of protein, cheese, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and sauce, and enjoy a delicious dinner. Give it a try, and let us know what you think.
