Tacos are an easy, nutritious, and delicious meal made better by baking your own taco shells. It’s so much easier than you would think. Here’s how it’s done.
First you will need to remove the wire rack from inside the oven and then preheat to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Next whisk together your dry ingredients to make sure everything gets combined evenly. Next you will mix the lard in by hand until the mix resembles small crumbs. Now mix in the water until it forms a dough. Knead for 10 minutes to develop the gluten and create a smooth elastic dough. Divide into 6 equal portions and rest for 20 minutes covered by plastic.
Roll out each one as flat as you can. Rest 20 minutes again and fry over medium heat until it starts to bubble then flipping it to fry the other side. Once they are cool enough to handle, arrange in the wire rack and bake them until they turn golden and crispy.
Remove with tongs and enjoy with your favorite toppings.
