Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 1 hr


For Cheese Taco Shells:

  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

For Taco Meat:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp homemade taco seasoning*
  • ¼ cup water

For toppings:

  • sour cream
  • avocado
  • cheese
  • lettuce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat place ¼ cup piles of cheese 2-inches apart. Press the cheese down lightly so it makes one layer.

  3. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until the edges of the cheese are brown.

  4. Let the cheese cool for 1 to 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 2 cups.

  5. Let cheese cool completely then remove.
  6. While baking cheese taco shells place the ground beef in a skillet over medium high heat cooking until it is completely cooked through.

  7. Drain the grease from the meat and then add the homemade taco seasoning. Pour water into skillet and stir everything around mixing it together.
  8. Simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid has cooked away.
  9. Add meat to taco shells and top with desired taco toppings.

  10. Serve and enjoy.
