This is an absolute game-changer for low-carbers!

Let’s face it; when you want to get your Taco Tuesday on, lettuce cups are so NOT the answer. With these easy cheesy shells, you can make lots of meals into a taco – Sloppy Joe’s, shredded BBQ meat, tuna salad, these would all make great fillings!

You can also try a different shredded cheese like Parmesan, and you can even put yours in this snazzy taco truck holder!


NOTE FROM COLLIN: I actually talk about these cheese taco shells, along with why I eat a Ketogenic/Low Carb Diet in a Facebook Live video here! My dad even joined me in the conversation!

    WI’ll they work in microwave . If so, how long?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Yes! You can make cheese-only shells in the microwave. Use parchment paper and because time varies by microwave according to wattage, expect roughly a minute to 1.5 minutes. Regardless, stop the microwave once the cheese stops boiling. Open it up, and quickly take it out and bend it into a taco. I hope this helps!
