You are about to get the best darned taco-making tip this side of the border. I say this knowing you’ve tasted a lot of tasty tacos in your vida.
But this, friends. This is the True Way to eat a taco. And once you have yourself a bite, you’ll nod your heads in agreement—and wonder at the genius that keeps unruly hard shell fragments contained in a soft tortilla blanket.
Or something like that.
Here’s how we do.
Next time you’re at the grocer, nab yourself this box. Pop it in your pantry and let it wait until one of those evenings when you want to make…oh, the world’s MOST AWESOME TACOS.
Now you may stuff these tacos with anything you please, but here’s a little secret from one foodie to another: Make the most gloriously simple chicken taco filling by popping 3-4 chicken breasts into your slow cooker in the morning. Drizzle with Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Cover and cook on Low for 6-8 hours, then shred and stick this chick in your tacos. You will not be not-sad. And by that, I mean you will be happy! Seriously taco happy.
So, now what, you ask? Well, here’s where it gets gooood. Open your taco kit and spread some refried beans on top of a soft taco. Then press a hard taco shell into the center of that baby and fill it with all of your favorite taco stuffs.
Boom! Double-decker tacos. These things don’t just combine soft-n-crunchy shells into a texture explosion. They also superboost the space available for taco fillings. So, you’ll be eating 23.1% more stuff, all in one little handful of tacoage. This is everything we need to complete our existences.
It’s all about the tacoage. Know what I mean?
