Pinterest Challenge - Week 13: Homemade Taco Shells

I heart tacos.  I didn't know it was possible, but I recently found a way to make them even better!!!  A few months ago while strolling through Pinterest I found a recipe for homemade taco shells on eatingwell.com and some baked taco tips on onegoodthingbyjillee.com.
Homemade Taco Shells
1) Working with six tortillas at a time, wrap them in a damp cloth and microwave for about 30 seconds.  
2) Lay the tortillas on a flat surface and coat both sides with cooking spray.  
3) Drape each tortilla over two bars of the oven rack.  Bake at 375 until crispy, 7-10 minutes.

After that I put my homemade taco shells in a 9x13 pan and fill them with seasoned ground beef and cheese...LOTS of cheese.  I bake that at 400 for about 10-12 minutes. 

This is a great recipe for me because I can make the taco shells and ground beef during my daughter's nap time and just pop the whole thing in the oven just before dinner.
