How awesome is this! Make your own taco salad bowls at home by following a few simple steps:
1.) Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
2.) Warm up some flour or corn tortillas (fajita size) in the microwave; about 20 seconds.
3.) Lightly spray with cooking spray (You can also just moisten them a bit with a small amount of water)
4.) Turn a muffin pan upside down and nestle the tortillas between the muffin cups
5.) Bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy, as shown below:
Voila!...And no deep frying! Let cool a bit and then fill with your favorite taco salad goodies. Who doesn't LOVE a crispy, crunchy, taco bowl? You can even make them mini-size for the kiddos! Just use taco size (6 in") corn/flour tortillas for mini taco bowls.
This idea is super fun when used for dessert! All you need to do is make a few changes to the list of instructions above:
1.) Only use FLOUR tortillas for dessert bowls
2.) After you warm them in microwave and lightly moisten them, simply sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. * 1 cup sugar to 2 Tbs cinnamon; mixed in a small bowl or shaker and then sprinkled on tortillas. (You will have leftover sprinkle mix. Just store it away for another sweet treat.)
3.) Nestle your sweetened tortillas between muffin cups and bake as directed
4.) Let cool completely; fill with ice cream and sundae toppings of choice
The whole family REALLY loved having ice cream sundaes like this! Kinda made me feel like a super hero.
