Guacamole Tacos

I'm sure this idea is out there somewhere in the inter-webs, but my husband felt pretty genius when he came up with it on a night we were set to have boring soft guacamole tacos. I'm so glad he decided to be adventurous because these are amazing! They remind me a bit of the nacho cheese chalupa that Taco Bell sells. Before caring about where my meat came from, I happily devoured many nacho cheese chalupas! I am glad to have a yummy home alternative that is even better for me! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, golden, warm and comforting- it doesn't get any better than that!

Heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil over medium heat. Fold a small flour tortilla in half and place in oil. Use a fork to prevent the tortilla from opening if it starts to bubble over. After 30-45 seconds, flip to the other side and allow to become golden brown. Remove carefully and place standing up on a paper towel or napkin, allowing to drain any excess oil. If you have a cooling rack, that might work better. Fill with guacamole, tomatoes and lettuce. Enjoy!
