Crunchy Taco Shell Hack Will Stop The Dreaded Split

The great news about America is you do not have to wait until Tuesday to enjoy a delicious taco!  While our love of crunchy taco shells goes without saying, there is one frustrating problem with them.  They generally split when you are filling or eating it! Warming them up in the oven helps. The heat gets all those oils activated, making the shell a bit more pliable and a little less prone to breakage. But if you really want to fortify the shell structure, melt a little cheese in the shell before filling it. Sprinkle a little bit of shredded cheese along the bottom and prop it up along the edge of an oven-safe pan. Bake at 350° F until the cheese is melted, then fill as usual—with more shredded cheese—and enjoy. The melted cheese works as a glue to keep the bottom from splitting spilling its taco goodness all over your plate, the floor or your lap.
