  • 6 corn tortillas
  • Metal cupcake pan
  • Non stick cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place 3 corn tortillas in a microwave and heat up for about 20 seconds so they are pliable and will bend without breaking.
  • Flip over the cupcake pan.
  • Spray both sides of the corn tortillas and push into the pan to form a "star" bowl, like you can see in the picture above.
  • Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly on oven rack and then fill with your favorite taco ingredients!
  • You can use paper towels if needed while cooling.
