Have you ever tried a taco shell made completely out of CHEESE? Yes, I’m sharing a recipe for taco shells that is all cheese. If you are a cheese lover like me – they are delicious. But then again I think cheese should be it’s own food group!
These cheese taco shells are a unique way of serving some of my favorite food which is Mexican food. I grew up in Southern California – where you can find amazing and yummy Mexican food. My parents also opened up a Mexican restaurant in Australia back in the day. I eat this food several times a week. It is definitely my favorite foods.
