  4. Once brown, remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-covered dish for a few seconds then immediately place the tortillas in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Sprinkle the tortillas on the inside and out with the mixture.

The tacos are best served the first day; however, they can also be placed in the refrigerator in an airtight container for a few days.

I removed them from the refrigerator about 15-20 minutes prior to eating them just so they weren’t super cold…talking about delicious!
