Guacamole in any food is a favourite in my
home ,and I have posted recipes on it .Today it’s
a Mexican dish in my style ,everything made
from scratch even the taco shells is homemade
(lockdown is training our hands ).This is the
first time I have made at home ,and in the
process learnt a method of storing the shells.
(pre-made) .I found this recipe in my old books.
This tacos can be made with countless fillings,
Vegan or non vegan ,with various sauces,salsa ,
and good to be served as a snack or a meal with
decked up healthy fillings .I served this for
breakfast with guacamole and mango with
cheesy mustard sauce.Made few in conical
shapes and the basic tacos shape.
It was a crunchy delicious breakfast !
Now to the recipe

250 gm all purpose flour
