Low Carb Cheese Taco Shells

We love tacos, but being low carb means cutting out the shell. Let’s be real here, tacos are not tacos without the shell.  We’ve found a way to enjoy a family favourite without ditching the crunch. We bring to you our favourite cheese taco shell recipe that will make your Friday night a fun fiesta.

This recipe is super simple, and quick, which is perfect for when you have hungry kids dying to eat! What we love about this recipe is that you can personalize your shells. You can substitute your favourite cheese with the cheddar in this recipe.

You can also use it to make cheesy crisps as a chip substitute. All you have to do is turn the portion sizes into bite-sized pieces and you have some delicious cheddar chips.

If you love cheesy chips as much as we do check out our Garlic Parmesan Kale Chips.
