Why I Love This Recipe

From our family to yours.. we hope you enjoy!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 dozen corn tortillas

1/4 cup of lard


Use your favorite frying pan or grill, and set it on medium heat/flame. With a butter knife, spread the lard on both sides of the corn tortilla, and place it on the heated pan or grill. Allow each side to soften by turning it over from one side to the other, two times. Do not allow the tortilla to harden before you have softened it. Let the corn tortilla sit on one side until it begins to harden. Do not let the shell close; use a cooking utensil to hold the shell open when flipping it over.
Let both sides harden; remove hardened shell and place on plate with the open side of the taco down. There’s no need to drain your shell, since it’s not deep fried. Tacos always taste better when warm; fill it with anything you want -- carnitas, fish, a veggie concoction, cheese, chorizo, whatever. Here, the shell’s the thing.
