Instructions for Taco Shells

"This press is perfect to make homemade corn tortillas. Once you try them, you will never buy the packaged kind again. Corn tortillas are healthier and less fattening the the flour ones. They are very easy to make.

"Mix 2 cups of corn masa (I use Maseca brand, but Quaker has it, too) and approximately. 1 1/2 cups of water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and just blend everything with your hands.

"Make a big ball and make smaller, golf ball-sized balls from that.

"Press each ball between 2 pieces of wax or plastic paper. You need to play around a little bit when you first use it. You might need to place the golf size dough ball more to the inside rather than in the center.

"Remove the tortillas from the paper and heat the shells in a hot skillet without oil for approximately 50 seconds on each side."--Dagmar Merritt

This is the best taco press in its size and class. It's a great buy for the money.

Chicken or Turkey Taco Recipe

These are traditional tacos made with leftover turkey or chicken meat.  This is an excellent recipe for the dark meat from the turkey.


1/2 cup diced onions
2 cups cooked, shredded turkey or chicken meat
1/2 cup salsa Verde
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

corn tortillas (if you prefer, flour tortillas can be substituted)

shredded cheddar cheese
diced tomatoes
shredded lettuce
sour cream


  1. Saute the onions in a little oil in a large skillet.  Add the meat, salsa Verde, cumin, garlic powder, salt and chili powder.  Mix and cook until hot.  Set aside.
  2. Cook the corn tortillas, one at a time, in a hot skillet with oil.  Turn to cook both sides.  As they finish cooking, lay them on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  3. Fold the tortillas and add a couple tablespoons of the turkey meat filling.  Top with grated cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and sour cream as desired.

Makes about 12 tacos.
