Garden of Eatin' Blue Corn Taco Shells

We had taco night over the weekend and I was craving some hard shell tacos. Although I never saw any hard shell tacos any where in Mexico, I still have a soft spot for them after many a trip in high school to taco hell.

Any who, most hard shell tacos are pretty terrible - stale, thick, and absolutely no flavor. We tried using the Garden of Eatin' taco shells since we dig the chips so much. These have great flavor and amazing texture - really light with some great crispiness. Unfortunately they're ridiculously fragile and almost every single one fell apart. The ones that didn't end up falling apart did so after filling them up with ingredients. Definitely not recommended and the search continues.

Fry your own! You can either heat a puddle of oil, and add the corn tortilla to make it really crispy, or you can wet the pan with oil, heat the tortilla so it's pliable, and then it'll harden somewhat. Again, use corn tortillas.

I agree! Homemade shells are the way to go!
