Hard Shell Tacos


I've been making these tacos for over a year now, and they are always a huge hit with my family. Even my brothers can't complain about them! You can make them vegetarian or with beef, or both! Simply replace the refried beans with ground beef or turkey and a packet of taco seasoning. Best served buffet-style, so people may choose their own taco ingredients.
