I love a crispy taco shell, but the ones you purchase at the store are always so fragile. I recently figured out how to make Easy Airfryer Crispy Taco Shells. These Easy Crispy Taco Shells are going to be at my taco Tuesdays for years to come.
Store bought crispy taco shells are often deep fried. Just like tortilla chips they pack in a few calories and fat grams per shells. In this recipe we make them with plain corn tortillas. By air frying them, we save a few calories and fat per shell. That certainly adds up.
Another benefit to easy airfryer crispy taco shells is that they hold up better once you fill them. The shell doesn’t immediately start shattering when you bite into it. They have a little pliability left to them.
How do you heat taco shells in the airfryer?
The airfryer oven is key for this recipe. Regular air fryers will just blow the shells around. You could also use your regular toaster oven. You’ll use the rack to hang your shells on as shown below. The shells hang on the racks and leave the perfect space for stuffing your fillings.
It’s really that easy. Now you can buy a big bag of your favorite corn tortillas and have crispy tacos any time you’d like.
