The Kitchen Magician's Easy Taco Shells

Everyone knows the familiar yellow box that most people reach for when a taco craving strikes. But why, when homemade taco shells are almost as easy, a fraction of the cost, and SO much more delicious!?

A quick online price comparison tells me that NetGrocer.com has a 12-pack of Old El Paso taco shells for $2.85, and a 90-pack of Ole-brand corn tortillas for $5.75. That's $0.24 per store-bought hard shell vs. $0.06 per homemade tortilla-turned-taco. Not that you can put a price tag on DELICIOUS, but in this economy, every little bit helps.
