Simple Tortilla Bowl for Taco Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by No-Brussel-Sprouts

Like most foods, I suspect this would probably taste better if it were deep fried, or slathered in oil or butter - but if that's not an option for you, here's a simple way to make individual serving bowls for your taco salad. You'll need a non-stick frying pan and two bowls that fit snugly together, the larger bowl will dictate the size of your tortilla bowl.

What a great idea! I only had 8" tortillas and I think this would be even better with the large "burrito"-size ones. I forgot the salt but didn't miss it; after adding salad and vinaigrette (I didn't use for taco salad, just a "regular" salad), the tortilla bowl was seasoned enough for me. This is a recipe I will be utilizing over and over! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat non-stick frying pan to medium high.
  2. Brown 1 tortilla on both sides, keep it moving or it will burn. If you get bubbles press the tortilla down with a spatula, just remember: keep it moving!
  3. Sprinkle with a little salt for flavour once tortillas are warm.
  4. When both sides are covered in brown spots (less than a minute per side on my stove) remove from pan and put in large bowl. Shape by putting smaller bowl on top. Be gentle or it will crack.
  5. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  6. Use immediately. I recommend filling them with Paula Deen's Taco Salad recipe #141195.
