COMMENT:
My family loves this recipe. You can also make the tortillas a day ahead and store in the frig until ready to fry and serve. Thank you for posting this, my recipe book fell apart and we lost some of it when we moved.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This is a family favorite. These shells are to die for! They don't even compare to store corn tortilla. They are well worth the work! It makes 13 to 14 shells. One step is missing - after frying the shell like a pancake, transfer it to another pan of hot vegetable oil for about 15 seconds, otherwise the shells will just fall apart. When used for enchiladas, they don't need fried and taste awesome as cheese & onion enchiladas.
