For the taco shells

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.

  • In a bowl, lightly whisk the flour, water and salt for 1-2 minutes, until there are no lumps.
  • Add 1/6 of the mixture to the pan.
  • Cook for 40-50 seconds on each side, until golden.
  • When ready, remove from pan and repeat the same process for the remaining 5 tortillas and set them aside until needed.
  • Overturn a muffin pan. Fold each tortilla in half and place between the muffin molds.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, until crunchy.
