  1. Move your oven rack to the middle, and preheat the oven to 300 F
  2. Grate the 2 pounds of Monterrey Jack cheese. C’mon, kids!
  3. Prepare condiments: chop lettuce and tomato and place into separate serving bowls
  4. Shred Oaxaca cheese and place in a serving bowl. Place guacamole in serving bowl
  5. Place a fitted sheet of parchment onto a cookie sheet. You can use other non-stick methods of baking, but this works well for me
  6. Grab a good handful (3/4 of a cup to a cup) of grated cheese and make a pile on the parchment, leaving room for 2 more piles. Spread the cheese out so it’s evenly distributed. Make sure to clean up any stray shreds
  7. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat
  8. Add ground beef and chop into small chunks with a spatula while it’s cooking. Brown
  9. Add spices. This is where you can spice to taste. You definitely want up to perhaps a teaspoon of salt. Start with 1/2 tsp and work your way up. Taste it (after it has browned a bit) to test for saltiness before moving on
  10. Once the oven is up to temp, place the cheese on the middle rack and set a timer for 10 minutes
  11. You know the shells are done when they are brown around the edges and still have a little cheese color in the middle. They will be crispy and flexible. In my case, I used a blend that was pretty oily, and I had to tip the tray so the oil would run off to the edge. It pooled in the middle of each shell.
  12. Remove the shells and bend over using a straw, dowel, or spatula handle. If you have nothing else, just bend them in half
  13. Assemble your tacos! I like to start with a little sour cream in the bottom
  14. Next, I add a little taco meat
  15. Then the Oaxaca cheese. This picture shows off-the-shelf pre-packaged Mexican cheese
  16. Add tomatoes
  17. Finally, lettuce. But… that’s just me. Enjoy!
