I had a few tortillas leftover so I cut them into triangles, fried them up as well (a bit longer than I do the taco shells) and man, they put those mexican chain restaurant style chips to shame. Well worth the effort, let me tell you!!
Other than the shells, the most important part of the taco is the meat. I use a recipe that I got from my 20 yr old Betty Crocker cookbook. It's easy and tastes great. You use 1 lb of ground beef, chopped onion...brown it all up. Toss in 2 TBS of chili powder, a chopped garlic clove, 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of cumin....mix that all up and sprinkle it over the meat. Then pour in 3/4 cup of water. Lower the heat and let it simmer until the liquid has reduced and thickened....and thats it. Chop up your favorite taco stuff, shred some cheddar cheese (and crumble up some queso fresco if you can get it) and enjoy! yum yum yum!!!
