    What Do You Need to Make Taco Salad Bowls?

    Tips for the Best Taco Bowl Shells

    • Buy high quality tortillas. If you have one nearby, a local Hispanic market will carry fresh tortillas. You can often find them at your favorite grocery store!
    • If your tortillas are tearing, try warming them in the microwave first. This makes them softer to help shape into bowls without tears.
    • Experiment with sizes. Mini tortillas are great for kids or smaller servings, and larger burrito-sized tortillas are great for hungry guests. (*For smaller tortilla bowls, try tucking the mini tortillas into an upside down muffin tin to form them into a bowl shape!)
    • For an extra indulgent touch, line the bowl with cheese!

    What do you put in Taco Salad Bowls?
