Rabindra, Taco shells are very easy to make. They can be made crunchy or soft, and are usually made from corn flour. I prefer soft because it holds together better when you bite into it. There’s a few ways to make them depending on what you have to cook in, but they are really easy to make! They are tasty too when they are all hot and fresh.


There are plenty of Mexican members I think could tell you the authentic way to make them if you can’t find easy instructions (with pictures!) online. Fried in oil is most common, or baked, or some combination of both. There are many ways to get it cooked.


Typically tacos are filled with spiced shredded meat (I’ve seen beef, poultry, pork, fish, and wild game used- seperately of course), and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese. I like refried beans in mine also. Breakfast tacos are usually filled with foods you’d normally eat at breakfast, such as eggs. I ate one this morning, it was as good as you expect.


You should make some and have a party with your friends! Tacos are very popular party foods. You can make them exactly the way you like them, they are easy to make, and you probably have all the ingredients you need already.

If the girl on the avatar to the lesson looks so cool hipster and she’s a dweller of Texas, what can be said about the guys. One thing i I know without walking into a town yet is that it’s full of very confident and tough people who knows a thing or two :)))
