What is a hard shell taco made of?
While there exist many different versions of hard-shell tacos, the most common form of the hard-shell taco is served as a crisp -fried corn tortilla filled with seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and sometimes tomato, onion, salsa, sour cream, and avocado or guacamole.
Do hard shell tacos need to be cooked?
Are taco shells ready to eat, or do I need to cook them? Taco shells are safe to eat out of the box; however, if you do not warm them, they will be denser, more brittle, and will probably crack all the way across the bottom on the first bite and everything will spill out through the bottom.
How do you keep taco shells from cracking?
Lay your taco shells down on the baking sheet as you normally would and insert a small, loosely balled up piece of aluminum foil inside each shell, making sure it’s wedged in there just enough to keep the shell propped open. Be gentle when inserting the foil, as you don’t want to break your shell in half.
What goes on a taco first?
To assemble tacos, layer beef mixture, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes in each taco shell. Serve with salsa; top with sour cream.
Are hard or soft tacos better?
In addition to staying together, soft tacos actually hold more toppings than the standard hard shell taco. Yet another benefit of the soft shell taco is the taste of the squishy shell. While hard tacos have great texture, they lack the great corn tortilla taste.
What do you put inside a taco?
If you want to keep it classic, the best taco toppings are cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. But you can also add in caramelized onions, jalepenos, green chiles, beans, and more!
How do you eat hard tacos without falling apart?
Sprinkle cheese on the bottom of the taco. Speaking of cheese, another easy way to make sure your taco doesn’t get super juicy and fall apart is to coat the bottom with cheese. If you place it near the warm meat it will get melty, instead of eating cold cheese sprinkled on top of cold toppings.
What makes a good taco?
Here are those common traits and those tacos.
- Tortilla. 50% of any taco will always be a tortilla.
- Protein. Whether it is carne asada, nopales, or al pastor, protein quality is usually the most easily detectable factor of a good taco.

What are the healthiest taco shells?
The taco shell you choose influences the amount of calories in the finished product. The healthiest option is a non-fried corn tortilla instead of fried or flour tortillas. Frying the shell adds a lot of fat and calories, and corn tortillas are generally more filling and contain fewer calories than flour tortillas.
Do Mexicans eat crispy taco shells?
Probably you have some notions about hard-shell tacos, those prefabricated crunch sleeves of bright yellow corn, filled with spiced ground beef. They are as Mexican as a ranch house in the Michigan suburbs. “People say Mexicans don’t eat hard-shell tacos, and that’s bull. We eat tacos dorados — fried tacos.
