  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 12 corn tortillas


  • Preheat a skillet with 1 cup vegetable oil on medium-high heat.
  • While the oil preheats place a plate next to the pan, lined with paper towels and the 12 corn tortillas you will be frying.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, place the corn tortilla in the pan. Let it cook for 10 seconds. Then flip the tortilla, and let it stand for another 5 seconds. Then fold with tongs.
  • Remove the shells from the skillet and drain excess oil over pan. Place on the paper towel lined plate. Repeat until you've cooked all 12.
