Introduction: Easy Baked Taco Salad Shells
Ever wanted taco salad, but just didn't want to go to the store to get taco salad shells?
I have. Especially because where I live there seems to be no taco salad shells ANYWHERE to be found.
Luckily, they are EASY PEASY to make!
Here's What You'll Need
Medium sized tortillas (this is a great recipe for those older tortillas laying around)
Step 1: Preheat
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Place your muffin pan in the oven upside down for about 5 minutes, just long enough to warm up the pan.
Step 2: Make the Shells
Spray the bottom of your muffin pan and while it is still warm, gently press your tortillas into the areas between muffin wells.
You should have a flat square/diamond shape and creases where your tortilla bends between the wells.
Bake at 375 degrees for 5-8 minutes, until the tortilla is crispy and holds its shape.
Step 3: Fill Them Up!
Now you can use your delicious taco shells to make an AWESOME taco salad!
These things will hold quite a bit of delicious fillings, so pile them on high!
Queso, beef, lettuce, tomato, onion...the whole nine yards!
