Active Time:  10 Minutes
Total Time:  35 Minutes
  6 servings, 2 taco shells each
Surprisingly easy and far better-tasting than store-bought taco shells.

Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat at 375°F for 1 to 2 minutes before serving. | Equipment: Baked-taco rack
12   6-inch corn tortillas
Canola oil cooking spray
3/4 teaspoon  chili powder, divided
1/4 teaspoon  salt, divided

Tip:  Working with 6 tortillas at a time, wrap in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. Lay the tortillas on a clean work surface and coat both sides with cooking spray. Then carefully drape each tortilla over two bars of the oven rack. Bake at 375°F until crispy, 7 to 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

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.

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).

Remove the shells from the rack and repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the remaining 8 tortillas.
