i'm not mbuster, but I make them by heating the provolone slices in the oven or micro and placing them on a cheese dish i got from a cheapie store a couple of years ago until they cool. Then stuff with whatever you want.It folds them in half with a small flat bottom that makes them easier to fill.

Busy day yesterday, even after getting home. I'll have to find out and post tonight about how she did cheese as shells.

I know I've made nachos by crisping provolone in the microwave then putting jalapeņo peppers and salt on them, but that always melted the cheese, so I'm guessing Pat's way about using the oven may be how she did it.

I'm not very successful at picturing that dish but I'm glad it works for you.
I'm trying to figure out what I might have that is the appropriate shape.

It is a butter dish with a slightly squared off top like your mother used to use. Does that help?

I decided to try taco's tonight, so googled to find out how to do the cheese shells, after looking at several video's what I did was put a circle of parchment paper on a plate. I used shredded cheddar mixed with a little parmesean and spread it around in about a 4" circle and microwaved for about 55 seconds. Just until it browns. Pull it out and when warm you can bring the parchment up to kind of fold it hold it a second while it cools. Perfectly crispy and sooooo good!

Sorry for the delay, just been busy.

Here is what BH says she did for the taco shells and I do remember her saying something about sprinkling mexican seasoning or spices on the cheese. I'm not sure what that is exactly but we didn't use it/them but maybe someone could try spicing up their cheese shell.

Taco Shells
Provolone cheese (rounds)
Bake at 375 on parchment paper. I sprayed mine with Pam.
Bake for 7-10 minutes, depending on how crunchy you prefer. Take out of oven- using a spatula carefully lift off pan and drape over an edge of a cake pan until cooled.

Choose your favorite
Fillings:
avocado/guac
shredded cheddar cheese
taco meat
pulled pork
fajita chicken or beef
sauteed bell &/or other peppers
sauteed onions
broiled/bbq
chipolte or other spiced shrimp
sour cream

*I googled provolone taco shells and there are 196,000 results. I don't know who had the original idea.

Default Cinco De Mayo!

For Cinco de Mayo, we had homemade enchiladas. My snack will be a mash of strawberries and mangos in a blender, then mixed with diet 7 up. Just a little festive. Mango doesn't seem to raise my blood sugar. If you are low carbing, skip the strawberries and just use the mango. Still a delicious drink.
