Taco Salad in Baked Tortilla Bowl
What could be more fun than to serve taco salad in a baked, crispy tortilla bowl? Maybe ice cream but that’s a different recipe and post altogether. If it’s Taco Tuesday at your house tonight, why not consider serving individual taco salads in baked tortilla bowls. Sounds like a plan to me!
Baked Bowls Made Easy
Making baked tortilla bowls at home couldn’t get much easier. If you have Pyrex glass bowls, preferably 2 to 4 cup size bowls, (or any oven-proof bowls) non-stick cooking spray, and aluminum foil, you can make tortilla bowls at home. You can use one of those special tortilla bowl makers, if you have one but if you don’t, use a bowl or any thing else that’s oven-proof.
For this recipe we used ground beef but ground turkey would work nicely too. Canned black beans, salsa, taco seasoning mix chopped tomatoes with green chilies, cooked Spanish rice and cream cheese is simmered together to make a super filling for the tortilla bowls. Add then usual taco ingredients and you’re good to go. Keep in mind that the burrito style or jumbo style tortilla shells work the best. Once you start making these super easy tortilla bowls at home, you’ll be amazed at what you can fill them with.
