Soft Taco Shells

1 1/2 cups milk
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
pinch of salt

Whisk egg in the milk, add the flour and stir til well blended. Add in the cornmeal and stir til evenly distributed. This should be quite runny, don't be afraid to add more milk as needed.

Pour about 1/4 - 1/3 cup batter in very hot, oiled frying pan and rotate pan to coat the bottom with the batter. When the top starts to look dry all over its time to flip. Repeat until you've used all the batter.

This amount usually feeds 4 family members or 2 ravenous adults. Enjoy!

Amber, when I made these tonight I realized that my 1 cup of flour is not a level one. So it is likely more like 1 1/4 cups flour.

Thanks Alix, sounds almost like a crepe recipe but with fewer eggs and the addition of cornmeal. Have to give it a try.

And wonder what a bit of cornmeal would do for my crepes? Gotta think about that.

Nahhh :P
Not on one of my hungry days.
I can eat non stop on one of those. I've eaten more than my family alone on a hungry day.

This could be a very useful recipe! May I ask, what kind of cornmeal did you exactly use? Does it have to be masa harina?

Masa harina is corn flour if I am not mistaken. I use cornmeal which is sort of grainy, like yellow sugar almost? Does that help urmaniac?
