How do you prepare crunchy taco shells so they don't shatter after the first bite?

So our new tradition is Totally Taco Tuesdays, and that's tonight - yay! But although we have the soft taco pretty well mastered, crunchy tacos always make us sad - you take one bite and the whole rest of the thing shatters, and then I'm yelling at the remains of the taco, which is nobody's finest moment.
We've followed the directions on the package to the letter about warming them, but it doesn't help. By contrast, when we get tacos up the road at El Nopal, they never ever shatter. What are we doing wrong?
