 Taco Salad
Serves 4-6

     *I usually set up "Buffet Style" so people may pick & choose the food items they want on their  salads.

  • small amount of oil for cooking
  1. Prepare all the veggies & chill till serving 
  2. On a grill or a large frying pan, prepared with oil, roast the tortilla's, frying on both side, lightly cooking
  3. In large individual salad bowls prepared with cooking spray, place each tortilla in the bowl...place a coffee cup or smaller bowl on top..See photo below...Bake in the oven at 250 degrees for about 15 minutes...watch for browinng...turn off the oven and let the bowls cool slowly in the oven while you prepare the meat
  4. Cook the hamburger with the seasonings until done

  • Use the cooked Taco shells for your salad bowl...(I removed coffee cups, but left the shell in the bowl for serving)
  • Fill your taco salad as desired...**I started with the meat first
  • Top with Guacamole & Sour Cream, Sprinkle with Cumin
  • Serve alone or with your favorite dressing...
