Introduction: Taco Shell Bowls

Make your own taco bowls from corn tortillas. Just need some muffin tins, tortillas and non-stick spray.

Re-worked from Eating Well

Step 1: What You Will Need

- corn tortillas
- frying pan or griddle
- non-stick spray
- muffin tins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Heat the Tortilla

On a medium heat, allow the tortilla to just get warm (about 5-10 seconds) and flip.

Step 3: Flip and Spray

Flip the tortilla and heat the other side (about 5-10 seconds)

Tip: both sides of the tortilla need to be sprayed with non-stick spray. After you flip, you can spray a little on the top.

Step 4: Remove From Heat

Take the tortilla and remove it using a spatula. You will want to flip it onto the muffin tin, turned upside down, into the open space between four cups.

Step 5: Form the Shell

While still hot, press into the space between the cups. It should be evenly opened.

Step 6: Spray the Other Side

After forming the shell, spray this side of the shell lightly.

Repeat filing the pan with more shells.

Step 7: Cook the Shells

Place the tins inside the oven for about ten minutes. Keep a watch on them so they don't burn. You want them to cook just before turning brown.

Step 8: Cool and Stuff

Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Stuff with taco meat, lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.

Any leftovers can be stored in an air right container or large freezer ziploc bag.

    Was planning on going out & buying a taco mould, thank you for saving me the money & the hassle of finding a storage place for more cooking paraphenalia! Going to show this to my friend who is a Mexican food freak, she'll love it too. Gave her a muffin tin when she moved house. No excuses now- Mexican fiesta night coming up methinks...
