Taco Salads

I love taco salads. They combine fresh veggies and wonderful seasoning together with a crunchy tortilla shell surrounding it all. I received a gift for Christmas from my sister in law that molds the tortilla's into a bowl and I made them for her birthday.  I used some tortillas and veggie I had gotten from Bountiful Baskets that had been frozen for later use. 


Cutting Board
Saute Pan
4 Mixing Bowls or Tupperware
4 Tortilla Baking Bowls or Metal Bowl that is oven proof


1 lb Lean Ground Beef
1 Package of Taco Seasoning
8 Tortillas (if small) 4 (if large)
1 Head of Romaine Lettuce
1 can Refried Beans
4 Green Onions, diced
1 can Green Chilies
1 Package of Shredded Cheddar
1 Container Salsa

1 Container Sour Cream
1 Bottle Hot Sauce


Pre-heat oven to 350°f. Place the tortillas into the baking bowls and place in oven to bake for 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. You will want to check the tortilla for air bubbles and pop them if there are any. 

Brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning and place in tupperware bowl. Shred the romaine lettuce into bite size pieces and place into tupperware bowl. Heat the refried beans in tupperware bowl in microwave for 2 minutes or until heated through. 

Add whatever toppings you would like and enjoy!
