Recommended order for building a taco

While there's no right or wrong way to build a delicious taco, I have found through many years of research and development this order works best for me.
  1. 1.
    With a spoon, paint a layer of sour cream on the inside of the shell
  2. 2.
    Add a layer of sharp cheddar cheese
  3. 3.
    Add a layer of ground beef or chicken. Putting the hot meat or chicken on top of the cheese will melt it a little.
  4. 4.
    Top the meat or chicken with taco sauce. Pouring the sauce on top of the meat allows it to absorb into it nicely.
  5. 5.
    Add a layer of shredded lettuce
  6. 6.
    Add a layer of diced fresh tomatoes. The tomatoes on top weigh the lettuce down.
  7. 7.
    Gently press everything into the shell and enjoy!
