For the mini taco shells, cut 40 (2-1/2-inch-round) circles from fajita-size flour tortillas. Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Fry tortilla rounds for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned, turning halfway through. Transfer to paper towels to cool. Wipe skillet clean.
Tacos are essentially finger foods, but have you ever seen them served as appetizers? Use a small cookie cutter to create small tortillas and fill them with a savory shrimp mixture.
