Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge 2

 

Sometimes, eating lower carb is a wee bit difficult when you crave your old favorites. The other day, I wanted tacos SO. FREAKING. BAD. and I didn’t think I’d be able to have them because, Keto. Then I saw a friend of mine had made taco shells with shredded cheese! You read that right: shredded cheese! And I HAD to try it out!

 

Here’s what I used:

Yup. That’s it. Shredded cheese.

 

First, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 350F. Then, on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet, make 1/4 cup piles of cheese about 2 inches apart. Press the cheese down lightly so it makes one layer instead of a little mound.

Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes or until the edges of the cheese are brown. Let the cheese cool for 2-3 minutes then place it over the handle of a wooden spoon or another utensil that is balanced on two cups.

 

Allow to cheese cool completely then remove—you’ve got yourself a low carb taco shell!

I actually liked these MUCH better than the regular shells. Tortilla shells fall apart so easily and you lose all that yummy goodness on your plate (or lap, if you’re a messy eater like myself) and it’s so frustrating! These shells stayed in place and added a new flavor to the tacos! I LOVED them and will absolutely be making them again!
