– Lean ground beef (or ground turkey) – Onion, diced – Minced garlic – Chili powder – Ground cumin – Pepper flakes – Water – Shredded cheddar cheese

Begin by cooking the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onions and minced garlic to the mix, allowing them to meld with the beef and bring out their flavors. Once fully cooked, ensure to drain the excess grease to keep the mixture lean and less oily.

Distribute about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on the prepared baking sheet. Space the cheese portions about 2-3 inches apart and gently flatten them into circular shapes to form the base of your shells.

Pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven and allow the cheese to bake for 6-8 minutes, until they turn golden and bubbly.

While the cheese shells are baking, gather a few tall kitchen items like a large coffee can, a salt container, or something similar. Arrange wooden skewers horizontally across these items, creating a makeshift rack. If you don't have skewers, you can use large spatula handles or any other suitable kitchen tools.

Now, it's time to assemble your tacos! Spoon the seasoned meat mixture generously into each cheese shell.
