This recipe makes some crispy and healthy toasted taco shells loaded with freshly made tomato salsa and well spiced ground beef, topped with creamy guacamole and savory cheese. These Ground Beef Tacos will be your perfect meal for lunch or dinner!
My pro tip is to magically turn soft taco shells crunchy – by using a toaster! Simply fold a tortilla into half and pop the tortilla into the toaster like a slice of bread. Make sure your tortilla is not significantly larger than your toaster slots. I used 6 inch tortillas. They fit in my toaster perfectly.
Toast them for 4 minutes (time might vary), then you will have some perfectly warm and crunchy taco shells in return without having to deep fry them!
Surround 4 tortillas in a damp kitchen towel and microwave for 45 seconds (or just 1 tortilla for 20 seconds) – they will turn soft and flexible.
You do not need to do this extra step if you buy the extra soft wheat tortillas.
