  2. Once the dough is rested, divide it into 15 equal balls. Take 1 dough ball, roll it out to a 5-inch circle. Prick the rolled dough a few times with a fork.

  3. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Gently slide the dough into the hot oil. It should immediately float and puff. Let the dough fry for 30 seconds on one side.

  4. Use tongs to flip the dough over and gently fold the dough in half like a taco shell. Hold the dough in that shape as it fries for 30 seconds. Roll the shell over to cook evenly. It should be done after about 2 minutes of frying.

  5. Remove the shell and let it drain on a paper towel. When it’s fried, it should hold its shell shape. Repeat with all the shells.


  1. Once the shell has drained, fill them with black beans, sour cream, queso sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and grated cheese.

  2. Serve with desired hot sauce. Enjoy!
