  • Shredded Lettuce

  1. Heat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, crush the flaming hot puffs until they are a fine crumb; about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the shredded cheese to the food processor and pulse a few times to break up the cheese. It should be a fine mixture
  4. Scoop ¼ cup of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and form into a small circle, pressing the edges in so there are no stray crumbs. Repeat with the remaining crumbs; this should make roughly 3 shells.
  5. Bake for 6-8 minutes, watching for the shells to turn a deep red. Remove from the oven and let sit for ONE minute, then gently peel them from the paper and form into a taco shell. They cool quickly so you’ll want to work fast. Fill with desired fillings and enjoy!

**If your shells harden too quickly, you can microwave them for 5 seconds to soften and reform.
