This post is especially for my beautiful friend Emily. She’s a personal hero of mine.
Sometimes, meal planning in our house is like the Food Network show Chopped. Ok, I have ground beef, and, um, cheese, jelly beans and maybe some lettuce and I have half an hour. What can I make? Tacos. But, oh, I don’t have shells or taco seasoning. No problem! Here is a great (and easy) recipe for taco shells. Trust me, they are easy.
I cut it into pieces before I roll them into balls.
Cat rolled them out with my non-stick rolling pin. I know there is a great tortilla press that I can purchase. Maybe I’ll put that on my Christmas list. 😉
I warmed up my cast iron skillet and popped the expertly rolled tortillas on for a few seconds.
Then, I place them in a damp towel.
My family likes them way better than the store bought variety. 🙂
Oh, and if you’d like to make your own taco seasoning, I use the recipe here.
PS. I ate the jelly beans while making the tortillas. You know, ’cause that’s great for me…
