A Cheese Taco Shell?
The idea that you could make a taco shell from cheese had never occurred to me. I make parmesan crisps all the time for salads and to snack on and never thought to move outside that realm. Then I saw a video on Facebook of a taco shop in Manhattan that was doing just that. It is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve come across. This is thinking outside the box at its best and I love it. This taco shell is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even as a snack all by itself.
Texture, Texture, Texture
The overall appeal for me is the texture. It is crisp on the outside and the center is still very much chewy with cheesy goodness. The only fault I found with it was that the Jack like any other cheese, releases a lot of oil. This is easily remedied by letting it drain on a paper towel before filling it with all your goodies.
Quick And Oh So Easy
What I always appreciate in a recipe is something that it is very quick and easy to make. It takes me about seven minutes to cook one up. I like using a cast iron skillet, but any skillet will do. The one pictured is a breakfast taco. It has egg, shredded pork tenderloin, guacamole, salsa and fresh cilantro. Your options for fillings are endless. Experiment with all the possibilities and make it your own. I know that once you try this you will never miss a regular taco again. This is low carb that is not boring because it has all the elements that make for good eating. You will discover that when you are this satisfied you are less likely to think about going back over to the dark side to get your fix. From my kitchen to yours, happy low carbing.
