Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Mild, medium or hot enchilada sauce varies the flavor—and the heat--of these tacos.
  • tip 2
    Fill tacos just before serving so the shells stay crisp.
  • tip 3
    Set out an assortment of taco toppings such as shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped avocado and sliced olives.
