These are the instructions if you want to make 2 large taco shells. If you want to make a big batch of them, or for a large family, simply get another baking sheet and lots more cheese ready. As one batch is cooking and cooling, you can have the next batch in the oven.
Place the grated/shredded cheese into two large (or more, but smaller) circles on the baking sheet as shown.
Bake the cheese on the baking sheet in the preheated oven for up to 5 minutes. But watch them closely. You'll know when they are ready to remove from the oven when they have bubbled and cooked to a lovely golden brown colour. Do not overcook them. No one wants a burnt cheese taco shell.
Remove the baking tray from the oven and set it aside to cool down slightly. At this point, you may wish to place another baking sheet with taco shells in the oven to be cooking.
Cheese Taco Shells - shaping
Place two cups upside down on your kitchen bench. Place a kitchen wooden spoon between them as shown. Once the cheese taco shell is cold enough to touch, and still pliable, place over the wooden spoon handle to cool. Alternatively, you can buy a taco stand as shown above.
Repeat the process until you have made enough keto cheese taco shells for your family.
Cheese Taco Shells - serving
Serve with plenty of fresh shredded lettuce, taco meat sauce, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and more cheese.
How to choose the best cheese.
Check your cheese nutrition labels. Try to find a cheese that has <1g carbs per 100g.
Check the ingredient list. Cheese should only have 3 ingredients:
Some pre-shredded cheeses have a high carb content, indicating they have added starches such as potato starch as anti-clumping agents.
Check the nutrition label of vegan cheese very carefully. They are often high-carb and have a long list of chemicals that should be avoided.
