Mama Hanna's Crunchy Chicken Tacos (Baked Shell)

Submitted by: YOHANNAN

Introduction

A little bit of extra labor in cooking the taco shells twice is well worth the effort. The shells that taste just like you fried them. Watch the time though, they overcook easily.

Ingredients

    1 pound ground chicken
    1 tbsp. chili powder
    1/4 tsp. cayenne
    1/2 tsp. ground cumin
    1/2 tsp. onion powder
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. black pepper
    2 tbsp. water
    12 corn tortillas
    1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 head lettuce, shredded
    1 small tomato, diced
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    hot sauce (optional)

Tips

I can't say this enough, the cooking time is very important. If the shells are under-cooked, they will be very hard on your teeth. If you overcook them, even by a minute, they will have a burnt taste. Total cook time in a 350 degree oven is nine minutes exactly.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or brush tortillas very lightly with olive oil. (I use a 'Misto', but brushing works well too.) Rub the tortillas together to evenly distribute the oil. Heat a pan over medium-high heat, and toast the tortillas until lightly brown (about thirty seconds on each side.) Turn off the heat. Fold tortillas in half and stack as you go. Place tortillas in the 350 degree oven with one folded half of the tortilla hanging down through the oven grate, and the other half laying flat on the top of the grates (like an open book with half the cover and pages dangling down through the rack.) Total cook time is nine minutes- watch them very carefully. Too little cooking and they will be too hard to eat, too much and they will be burnt. Reheat the pan over medium-high. Mix the chicken, water, and spices together and add to the hot pan. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until done, about five minutes. Assemble tacos with the chicken, cheese, lettuce and tomato.
