TheFittChick NO-Carb Cheesy Taco Shells!
- 2 cups organic finely shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400.
3. Sprinkle cheese in the shape of a circle to your desired size. I use about ½ cup per taco shell.
4. Cook for 6-8 minutes until the shells start turning brown.
5. Remove from the oven and using paper towels (so you don’t burn your fingers), quickly and gently bend each shell over the edge of a large mixing bowl or in a taco stand. You can also put it in a bowl to make a taco salad bowl!
6. Allow to sit and set for five minutes.
1. Line a microwave-safe plate with parchment paper, and make a circle of cheese. I generally use a mix of organic shredded cheddar and monterey jack. Provolone cheese works great also!
2. Microwave for 1.5-3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. The longer you wait. The crispier the shell will be, but it will burn if you wait too long.
3. When they come out of the oven I let them cool a few seconds and then I work quickly and gingerly (trying not to burn my fingers) and gently shape each shell around the rim of a large mixing bowl or in a taco stand.
4. These taco shells can be stored in an air tight container for 3-5 days.
