Two Minute Microwave Taco Shell


I always seem to have tortillas but not taco shells. Did you know that you can turn a tortilla into a crispy taco shell in just two minutes, in the microwave and without frying it in oil? It really is that easy.






Place the tortillas into a

large deep coffee mug.



Place the mug on its side in the microwave.



Microwave for 2 minutes or

until the tortilla is crispy.

Then remove from the mugs.



Make your taco!

  1. Wow, it’s so simple! Who knew? I have tortillas around all the time and I had no idea that you could crisp them up and turn them into taco shells this way. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Diane! My mind is officially blown right now! 😲 I had no idea you could make tortilla perfection like this, so easily and quickly at that! I will be trying this one in the very near future I do believe! πŸ˜€

    Thanks, as always, for your awesome tips. You’re the best Diane!
