When I worked in a Mexican barroom in Texas, Mama Lupe' had a 12 slot one. Put the tacos on, lower into the fat and it was done in seconds.

Thanks Addie, but I'm trying to avoid frying them in oil although they do taste a lot better fried. I have an unused deep fryer (Cuisinart?) but am loathe to dedicate that much oil and am too lazy to drain it, clean it etc. Plus no counter top space in my apartment kitchen.

Of course in the winter I could just keep it in the outdoor storage cabinet---- but summer----- rancid.

Another way that the Internet says to do this is to drape the tortillas over two of the bars on the oven rack. That would be even better because it gives a wider bottom to the taco shell----- but wouldn't that make the bars become goo-ed up?

Since you want the flavor of the deep frying but are loathe to use your deep fryer, try spraying the tacos with oil and then place over the taco rack and bake them that way. Better flavor than plain and less calories than deep fried.

I like the idea of the taco bowl. You could serve a salad in one and then eat the taco.

We do that quite often. They make a great stand up taco. I brush both sides with evoo and put them on the grills of a 400F oven for about 5 minutes. What ever sticks to the grills wipes off very easy with a wet paper towel.
I put an empty cookie tray under them as they drip a bit.

I like Cave's and Rocket's 2nd method best. No storage, no mess, no cost.

O.K.---- that's enough for me to not buy that taco stand and just oven fry them using the racks.

'Just ask the experts' is always a good idea!
