We love tacos around here. Tacos in any and every form or fashion. Taco Tuesday is very much a thing in this house! Typically, we go soft-shell. But there is something to be said about a good crunchy taco! My main beef (pun not intended, but I’m rolling with it!) is that the shells always fall apart! Which is super annoying, especially when you are typically holding a baby while eating. #momlife
One day, I discovered this handy little trick that is SO easy and will dramatically improve your crunchy taco eating experience. Not really a recipe, but rather a tweak to the way you prepare them! Try this out and let me know what you think!
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab your favorite 9×13 baking dish and stand your taco shells in it. I was able to fit 8, but it just depends on the shells you buy!
Sprinkle fiesta blend, or Colby jack, shredded cheese into each shell.
Bake approximately 10 minutes, until cheese is fully melted and starting to brown just a bit.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy! The baking process makes the shells juuuust chewy enough that they don’t fall apart! But they still maintain that yummy crunch! The melty cheese holds all of your beef in, so that it doesn’t go everywhere. This is the only way to eat a crunchy taco! Try it and you will never turn back.
