We like to use corn tortillas for our soft tacos. Besides being more affordable than flour tortillas, the corn tortillas have a wonderful flavor!
This huge bag of 100 corn tortillas was $3.85 at Costco. (I put half of the tortillas in the freezer right away, to use later.)
To cook the tortillas for soft tacos, heat a heavy skillet (preferably cast iron if you have it!) or griddle over medium-medium high heat.
Add a little oil (we prefer just a very thin layer; I use a refillable oil spray bottle to spray some on).
Fry the tortilla for a couple minutes on each side, until browned and cooked (as opposed at tasting "raw"!). The tortilla should still be somewhat soft and pliable, not crunchy or crispy.
Put taco fillings in the tortillas: we like our taco meat recipe, beans, shredded cheese, chopped lettuce, sour cream, and tomatoes, salsa, or hot sauce.
Enjoy your soft, flavorful, easy, and frugal little tacos! Yum! :)
The first time I made these, Joshua was skeptical. After eating one, he was "sold"! :)
Later this week, I'll be sharing a recipe that uses these delicious corn tortillas! :)
To participate in Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Post on a kitchen-related topic in your blog and link to this post. Then come here and add the link to your post to Mr. Linky! Please, no giveaways, since they expire and this is for timeless kitchen secrets. ;) Links that do not go to a specific post or link back will be deleted. :)
Starting Next Tuesday: Kitchen Tip Tuesdays will be narrowing the focus to specifically kitchen tips/tricks rather than including anything kitchen-related (recipes, organization, shopping, food, decor, etc.). This will enable readers to find helpful tips more easily. I hope to add a separate "recipe swap" type of feature soon for those who wish to exchange and browse recipes! :)
