Cheese Taco Shells

  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese , shredded

Taco Meat

  • 1 pound Ground beef
  • 2 tablespoon Homemade Taco Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • Toppings for taco: Sour cream, avocado, cheese, lettuce, etc. optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat place 1/4 cup piles of cheese 2 inches apart. Press the cheese down lightly so it makes one layer.
  • 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 1-2 minutes until it is firm enough to lift but still bendable. Lift the cheese up and place it over the handle of a spoon or other utensil that is balanced on two cups.
  • Let cheese cool completely then remove.
  • While you continue to bake your cheese taco shells place the ground beef in a skillet over medium high heat cooking until it is completely cooked through.
  • Drain the grease from the meat and then add the homemade taco seasoning. Pour water into skillet and stir everything around mixing it together.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid has cooked away. 
  • Add meat to taco shells and top with your favorite taco toppings.
