How to Make Cheese Taco Shells Hip2Save

Directions: Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Pile 1/2 cup of shredded cheese into a 6 inch circle. Bake at 400 degrees until cheese turns slightly brown, around 6-8 minutes (possibly more depending how big your pile is). Build a little platform using large cups and lay spoons or chopsticks across the cups. Use a spatula to transfer the cheese to lay across the suspended spoons. Let cool until firm.

Fill with taco meat and toppings! YUM!

This idea is such a game changer if you’re trying to limit your carb intake! I think It’s more exciting than using a lettuce cup. Also, you could definitely make lots of meals into a taco – Sloppy Joe’s, shredded BBQ meat, tuna salad, avocado chicken salad, these would all make great fillings!

You can also try a different shredded cheese like Parmesan, if preferred. There are so many possibilities with this idea!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
