When growing up, I think one of my favorite meals (hands down) was soft tacos. My mom made the BEST cornmeal crepes. If mom said we were having tacos for dinner, the first question asked was, “soft tacos?” This Soft Taco Recipe will not disappoint — and homemade is always better!
Homemade Soft Taco Recipe
While the pictures do no justice to these soft tacos, I can assure you that they are amazing!
My mom still has (and uses) the same crepe maker. I wanted to try my hand at making soft tacos, so I started looking for a maker. I found this CucinaPro Cordless Crepe Maker. The price was right and the reviews were good, so I purchased one.
This crepe maker is great! I love the non-stick surface too! I would say that there is an art to crepe making — practice makes perfect, that is for sure! They can be too thick or too thin and it can be incredibly frustrating; however, after making 3-4, you’ll get a good idea of what you need to do for consistency.
