Description: You won't miss the crunch with this hard taco shell alternative. Easy to make!
Ingredients: -cheddar or colby cheese, either in block or smaller round form
How To Prepare: Cut the block of cheddar into slices about 1/4 inch thick, or slightly thinner (if using block cut the short way down, or in rounds if using that). On a small glass, or Correll-style plate, heat cheese in microwave for about 45 seconds. Depending on your microwave in may need a full minute. Some of you already know this trick to making what I call "cheese crackers". Using a knife's point peel the cheese cracker off of plate- CAREFUL it will be hot! Quickly lay the cracker over a rolling pin or some other round object to create the shell shape. Fill with your favorite ingredients and enjoy!

*NOTE* you will know when the cheese is done when it starts to get brown and is more solid than melty. It took me a few trys to find the perfect time for my microwave. I've also found that what you cook it on can make a big diffence too! The only downfall is that it doesn't seem to work if you cook more than one at a time.
Number of Servings: adaptable
Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known: 1g or less-depends on number consumed
Preparation Time: 60 seconds per shell

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Awesome!
Cons: None

We have been making these for several years now and this is a sure fire way to kill a need for crunch! My whole family likes these

We also make "bowls" from the cheese. Like they use for taco salads! Do the sqame thing as above and then lay on a small bowl flipped over so domed side is up!

On desprite days I have gotten my skillet nice and hot and just melt the hole bottom fullog cheese and let it brown, put it on paper towel and a great cruchy snack!
