8 Outrageous Things You Can Make Into A Taco Shell


By Cooking Panda

Taco Tuesday is here, and we’re feeling a little wild, so we’ve come up with some truly outrageous ways to eat tacos. Instead of using a tortilla, why not make a taco shell with something else, like bacon or ramen? We’re pretty confident that taco purists will scream in anger when they see this – to be fair, these can hardly be classified as tacos — but these recipes are seriously delicious and we think you should give them a try.

1. Cheddar Taco Shell

That’s right. You can make a taco shell out of CHEESE. Just cheese. Bonus: You can do this one on the stove, so you don’t have to heat up your oven on a hot day.

2. Pizza Taco

This is probably the furthest recipe from tacos, as it is basically just folded leftover pizza, but seriously why don’t we fry leftover pizza? If you want to be taco-y about it, you can always throw taco fillings into your pizza before folding it.

Bonus: If you have a little more respect for yourself, you might prefer this variation on the Pizza Taco (recipe here).

3. Waffle Breakfast Taco

You can totally use frozen waffles. They are heavenly when made from scratch, though.

4. The Real Fish Taco

If you’re already making fish tacos, this isn’t a ton more work, but it’s way more fun. We recommend using the fish batter from this recipe on white fish like cod or tilapia.

5. Ramen Noodle Pork Taco

Ramen burgers are a thing, so why not?

6. Taco Donut

It’s not exactly a taco, but we figured you wouldn’t complain. This taco donut is a bit of work, but it’s also a lot of fun. If you want to go for it, you can probably just take a regular donut and operate on it. Carefully slice the middle open from the inside of the ring and hollow it out if need be. Then add your taco fillings and seal it shut with melted cheese.

7. Bacon Weave Taco

The classic. Fill with anything you want – BLT + avocado or breakfast stuff would be great.

8. Potato Caviar Taco

Basically a potato chip taco. If you don’t have or want caviar/roe, these would be great with smoked salmon. Otherwise, we can’t see how these would be bad with Cuban Picadilla (ground beef) or really anything else.
