  • Soft is easier for me actually since I don't have to deal with broken shells and the mess. Plus corn tortillas are pretty low-cal and low-fat.

  • Sometimes I do both at the same time. I worked at Taco Johns and there's an item on the menu I love called the Taco Bravo. Soft shell with refriened beans wrapped around a regular hardshell.

  • We like soft. I buy flour instead of corn tortillas, I really don't like the corn ones at all.

  • We have some that prefer each, so we do both. I buy the hard shells but make my own flour tortillas.

  • We layer ours with black refried beans. Smear some refried beans on the soft one and wrap it around the outside of the crunchy one. It's a great way to get that crunch without it all falling apart on ya. LOL.

  • we just made them yesterday lol. My sister bought them though and cooked them here when she buys them. She buys hard and soft and some chips. She buys soft because that is what her so likes he wont eat hard. So then her son and my girls will eat soft too. She buys one box of hard because she likes hard and then she buys chips because I like to make a taco salad lol. When it is just me, my dh and my girls and I buy them to make I buy either hard or chips depending on my mood. We don't usually buy soft
