Anyone who listens to my podcast, 2 Keto Dudes, which I do every week with Richard Morris, knows that my weakness used to be a certain tex-mex fast food chain which shall remain nameless. I’ll give you a hint. It might rhyme with Choco-Smell. okay? Yeah. I’ve blown my ketogenic diet on this food at 3AM and it took me a week to recover.
Well, turns out you can make tacos at home that BLOW AWAY the fast food stuff. The key is to make taco shells out of cheese. That’s right! Cheese.
In this recipe blog post I’ll also show you how to make taco meat without any of those crappy flavor packets. I use real spices and fats. The upside is a better shell than a taco shell because a) it doesn’t crumble in your hands, and b) it actually has flavor.
Remember to buy more cheese at the store than you are used to when you make tacos, because it takes a good 3/4 cup (a handful) to make one shell. The upside is you will only want to eat 2 because they are so filling.
You should also shred your own cheese, because the pre-shredded Mexican cheese comes in a bag with potato starch, which isn’t helping your metabolism at ALL! Get a hand grater and go to it! Grating cheese is a great job for kids, who (let’s face it) need experience in the kitchen.
You’ll also need parchment paper and a cookie sheet for this recipe.
I introduced this recipe on my ketogenic lifestyle podcast with Richard Morris, 2 Keto Dudes.
