    3 cups of freshly shredded cheddar cheese (or experiment with your favorite cheeses!)

    Beef Taco Filling:
    1 pound ground beef
    1 small onion, diced
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
    1 packet of Taco seasoning
    1/3 cup of water (if needed)


    Preheat your oven to 350˚ F/ 175˚ C 

    Place your cheese in neat piles on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, until all the individual shreds melt into one disc.

    Be careful not to let the cheese color too much.

    Once they are all melted, let them cool for 2 minutes on your baking sheet, then lift them onto paper towels to blot off any excess grease. 

    To form the shells, lay them over a propped up utensil.

    (Or you can use anything in your kitchen, a wide bowl or saucepan could work too!) Set these aside to cool. 

    Next, make your Taco filling! We used a quick beef taco filling by browning off some ground beef on a high heat.

    Then throw in your onion, garlic, and jalapeños 
    right in with the cooked beef.

    Sprinkle over your taco seasoning packet and add water if you need it for a nice saucy filling.
