Ingredients

  • 12 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wrap 4 tortillas in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. (Alternatively, wrap in foil and heat in the preheated oven until steaming, 5 to 7 minutes.) Coat both sides with cooking spray; sprinkle a little chili powder and salt on one side.
  3. Drape each tortilla over a panel on a baked-taco rack and bake until crispy and brown, 7 to 10 minutes. (Or see Kitchen Tip.)
  4. Remove the shells from the rack and repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the remaining 8 tortillas.

Using the oven rack can be tricky if you were to only use one of the rungs on the grate. So.. as suggested use two!!
