Hard Shell Tacos

Hard Shell Tacos created by breezermom

I've been making these tacos for over a year now, and they are always a huge hit with my family. Even my brothers can't complain about them! You can make them vegetarian or with beef, or both! Simply replace the refried beans with ground beef or turkey and a packet of taco seasoning. Best served buffet-style, so people may choose their own taco ingredients.

    Yum! The build-your-own-taco idea was a BIG hit around here! I used the refried bean option, which I kicked up a little with additions of some cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper while warming the beans. I also love the flexibility with being able to offer a variety of toppings based on preference and what's on hand. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '11.

    This with variations makes a quick and popular lunch any day, and picky kids can choose what they put in. We may sometimes add green onions, sour cream, and avocado slices; we made ours with ground beef but have sometimes used the refried beans. Made for Pick A Chef 2011.
