Crispy or soft tortilla? Why not have both?  I got the idea for these jacketed tacos from a restaurant we went to a while ago. Tacos are on my menu quite frequently. Since we eat them often it’s always fun to mix it up a little and do something different. I also included some other ideas at the bottom of this post to help you mix it up your taco night. So the next time you make tacos for dinner,  try something new and give your tacos a twist!

Here is what you need to make the

Other ideas to mix things up with you tacos:

Brown 1-1/2 lb ground beef and add a can of chili to your meat to season it.Season you meat with taco seasoning mix and then add some thawed frozen corn or canned corn to the meat. They have some fun crisp Taco Bell taco shells at the store that are nacho cheese and ranch flavored. It’s like having a taco inside a Cool Ranch or Nacho Cheese Doritos.
I also have a recipe for chicken taco meat, shredded beef taco meat, and sweet pork.

  3. We never use the crisp shells because my younger boys have a hard time eating them without the shell breaking all to pieces and falling on the floor. Not fun.

    This is a wonderful way to have the crunch without it falling apart. I am going to have to try this!!

  4. What a good idea…I had never thought to do that at home! …and it’s easy! I thought a tostada shell might also work if you’re wanting to avoid the seam line from breaking the taco shell…
