Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make it bold! Try other varieties of Old El Paso™ Stand ‘N Stuff taco shells, like bold ranch, bold spicy Cheddar or bold nacho cheese.
  • tip 2
    Make these tacos a complete meal by adding a side of your favorite rice, such as cilantro-lime rice. Simply cook rice as desired; stir in fresh cilantro leaves and freshly squeezed lime juice with a dash of salt. Delicious!
