Step 4

To a smaller skillet, add about 1 cup oil & set to medium high heat, once hot, add in a corn tortilla, flip after 10-20 seconds, cook for another 10-20 seconds, then with your tongs, pick up one side of the tortilla as if you going to fold it in half into a taco, but hold it mid air, kind of forming the taco shell, as you’re half folding the tortilla while it’s also frying, it’s slowly going to maintain the standard taco shell shape. Total should take around 1 min 30 seconds to fry each tortilla shell. Place them on a paper towel lined plate while you fry up the rest.
