This tasty salad is made with baked tortilla bowls and Lawry's Taco Seasoning. I think there is a copycat version on this site somewhere for that. You could make that one, if you wish, instead of the store-bought. This was a fun dinner to make and very easy. Serve sour cream and salsa on the side. You can add more vegies or add peppers, if you wish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray one side of each tortilla with no-stick cooking spray. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Place oiled side of tortilla over ovenproof 7x3-inch mixing bowl. Place 6 oz. custard cup upside-down in center of tortilla; gently press custard cup and tortilla into bowl.
  2. Bake in a preheated 375 F oven until edges are golden brown (12-15 minutes). Remove to wire rack. Remove custard cup. Invert shell; cool completely. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  3. In 12-inch skillet, brown ground beef over medium-high heat. Stir in Taco Spices & Seasonings and continue preparing according to package directions. (Note: I like to add a couple of Tbsp of salsa to the seasoned meat as I think it's too dry.).
  4. TO SERVE:
  5. Place 1 1/2 cups lettuce in each shell. Top each with 3/4 cup warm meat mixture; sprinkle with cheese, tomatoes, green onions and olives.

I wondered how to make a tortilla shell for salads and now I know. I have to work on the technique a bit as the top edges crisped long before the bottom part was ready, but the salad still tasted great. I used ground chicken and mixed in some sauteed onion and garlic for a little extra flavor. Sprinkled some sliced pickled jalapenos on top and had a very enjoyable meal.
