Place the taco shells in the baking dish, standing up. I was able to fit 10 taco shells in the dish by adding 2 on each side. 10 Stand and Stuff Taco Shells
Bake the taco shells for 5 minutes by themselves to allow them to crisp up. Remove from the oven.

Sprinkle each shell generously with shredded cheese, the more the better! 2 cups Mexican Blend Cheese
