Your Taco Tuesday is about to get a serious upgrade with crispy cheese shells. Yes, taco shells made of cheddar cheese. They're super easy to make—just melt cheese into a circle on a nonstick skillet and then drape over the handle of a wooden utensil. Gravity does the work to mold into a hard taco shell shape, and it's ready to eat solo (for a keto-friendly and gluten-free crispy shell) or tucked into a warm flour tortilla. Pack it with your favorite taco filling—ground beef with taco seasoning is our go-to here—all the classic fixings, and lots of Cheesy Guacamole. Follow our step-by-step guide if you're more of a visual learner.
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup chopped cilantro, plus cilantro leaves for serving

A nacho by any other name is still as great.
Let your blender do the heavy lifting here.
A sweet & spicy twist on a classic to ring in the weekend (or the end a looong work day)!
