Ingredients

Crispy Shells
Beef and Bean Filling
Toppings

Directions

Crispy Shells
  • Position oven rack in center of oven. Preheat oven to 375°F. Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels. Microwave on high about 40 seconds until warm and softened. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil; sprinkle with salt. Slide oven rack out slightly. Carefully drape each tortilla over two bars of oven rack, forming shells with flat bottoms (sides will drape farther as they bake). Bake about 7 minutes, until crispy. Using tongs, transfer warm shells to a plate. (Or allow shells to cool completely on oven rack, then wrap in foil to use later. Shells may be made up to 1 day ahead.)

Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add chili powder, oregano, salt, cayenne pepper, and water. Cook and stir for 2 minutes until heated through.
