Baked Hard Taco Shells – A Family Favorite

Who does not love tacos? Every member of my family LOVES them. We’re a mexican food type of family and tacos are a staple. They’re quick, easy and can be healthy too! 🙂 But, those taco shells can be hard to make on your own and fried shells don’t always support nutrition goals (although from time to time I do love me some fried shells!) Originally I was on the hunt for a recipe that allowed me to bake shells and so this recipe came from Jillee’s blog. She’s amazing and is one of my daily visits!
