I used to go to Taco Bell every single week growing up. My brother was OBSESSED and he was 100x pickier than me. So my parent’s let him pick the places most of the time. And he was the king of the easiest meals. He’d go to Taco Bell and get a plain taco. Literally just a shell with beef and cheese lol – he’s nuts!

This Gordita Crunch though!! It is cheesy, tasty and EASY to make. Plus when you make one homemade it is so much healthier. I was even able to make this grain-free for us. So if you are gluten-free and love Taco Bell – you are in luck baby.

What ingredients are in these Gordita Crunch tacos:
