Cheese Shells

There’s no reason to give up on hand held tacos when going low carb! This is a great portable food alternative if you are following a Ketogenic or low carb lifestyle, even if you don’t this is still an awesome option to switch things up on Taco Tuesday.

You just need one simple ingredient: CHEESE!

With 1 oz of cheese, a warm pan & something to drape it over you have a fun taco shell alternative.

In my video I draped my cheese over a homemade taco form but some people even put a long stirring spoon over a pot and hang it that way.

  • 1 oz of cheddar cheese per shell


  1. Preheat small pan on medium.
  2. Add 1 oz of cheddar to heated skillet. Be patient! let the cheese cook until the edges have browned and you can easily slip the spatula beneath it. Approx 3-5 min.
  3. Flip cheese and let cook an additional 1-3 min, this side doesn’t take as long.
  4. Once cooked drap over whatever taco form you decide to use.
  5. Let cool and continue this process until you’ve made all the shells you want.

These shells are very versatile, I like to use any leftover shells to make breakfast tacos the next day!
