Make your own Jack in the Box tacos

Though two free tacos from Jack in the Box sounds great, if you’re addicted to the crunchy treats than you can also try making them on your own. There are two big secrets to Jack in the Box tacos that differentiate them from what you might usually make. First, the “taco sauce” is actually a mixture of refried beans and thin, spiced tomato sauce. Second, the shells are fried in-store, which makes them much more flavorful. To re-create this at home, try using this Jack in the Box taco recipe, or even just fry your own shells. You will be able to tell the difference.
