Better Than Taco Shells
I remember taco night as a kid. My mum would buy the crispy taco shells that came with the spice mix. She’d sauté ground beef with the spice mix and we’d make our own tacos, filling them to the rim with the beef mixture, shredded lettuce, tomato and cheese. I’d fill my taco so carefully and then take my first bite and my plate would instantly be full of taco salad. Those hard taco shells were impossible to keep in one piece and inevitably broke as soon as my little hands picked it up. These crispy beef tacos take me back to those taco nights as a kid, but by using soft flour tortillas and crisping them up myself – in the oven, on the stovetop or in the air fryer – they are more forgiving and more manageable, no matter how big or small your hands are.
