Are you and your partner both soft taco shell lovers or hard taco shell lovers? Or maybe you like a combination of the two. Choose which taco shells will be the foundation of your tacos.
Step 2: Choose Your Taco Base

There are also tons of great online recipes to choose from to make your taco base. However, some simple olive oil, salt and pepper are enough to cook any of the above and make it taste delicious. You can even choose to make or buy a general taco seasoning, which will also season any taco base and make it taste delicious.
