    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Large grill basket or grill screen
    • Small bowl
    • Paper towels


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape and bake taco shells according to packaged directions.

    2. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking over medium-high heat (375 degrees). Spray a large grill basket or grill screen with nonstick spray; set aside.
