Eating low carb, but still want to enjoy yummy TACOS? Try this method of making taco shells using just shredded cheese! It works great, tastes AMAZING, and is very easy to accomplish. You will be hooked!
No Carb Shredded Cheese Taco Shells
One Ingredient Needed (that’s it):
2 cups shredded cheese (I used a Mexican Blend)
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!
