This is cool.  You can take a regular tortilla shell and stick it into a conventional toaster... like ideally the bagel type, and the toaster will not only shape them into the stand up type of shell, it will also crisp them right up.  I love this idea.  So much better than buying or making the soft shell taco shells, and also the hard shell type just to satisfy everyone according to their preference.

I like to hear of cool ideas that people have figured out with regular stuff that you may not have thought of before.  You may run into that Pinterest fail that also tends to happen.  I look at some of that stuff and I'm thinking 'oh, I could do that'.  Probably not.  But I'd like to think I could.

What sort of cooking hack have you tried that works great that people may not have thought of before?
