The best of these crispy crunchy tacos is that they are gluten free and low fat. The only fat that I use is cooking spray and contains 4 calories a spray. That is it.

The only things you need for this recipe are home made corn tortillas, cooking spray and an oven. If you make fresh corn tortillas put them in a tortilla warmer or a fresh kitchen towel. Then let them slowly cool off before further use.
The warmth of the corn tortillas will steam them a little to make them nice and flexible. To give the tortillas the shape of a taco I fold them on a grill rack.
To prevent them from losing their shape I use a backing tray underneath the grill rack to hold them up a little.
These crispy tacos are not shaped as perfectly as store bought ones nor do they cook as evenly but that is the charm of home made. Don’t these look good enough to eat? Even without filling they are great.
