 Crispy Taco Shells and Vegan Tacos (T)
 With all the Mexican recipes coming in, I thought I'd share a
 fat-free way to make crispy tortilla shells for tacos or just to
 munch on. 
 Turn on your oven to 350 F. (180 C. or Gasmark 4) - no need to
 preheat - and lay fresh corn tortillas across two of the wires
 of the oven rack, letting the tortilla fall below any other wires:
                  ______                              ______
 before .    .   /.    .\   .    .        after  .   /.    .\   .
             ~~~~         ~~~~                       |      |
 As soon as the tortilla starts to darken slightly it's ready to 
 remove (very carefully - it's hot!). 
 My version a crispy taco is to put a layer of shredded romaine 
 lettuce on the taco shell, then add a thin layer of Spanish rice, a
 layer of veggie chili, a layer of salsa and a sprinkling of fatfree 
 soy cheese (my favorite is Soya Kaas FatFree Jalapeno Jack).
