With the weather improving and working in the yard more, I like foods like this that take no time to make and are versatile. This salad bowl takes 10-15 min. depending on how crispy you like your bowls, and can be made with Mission Low Carb tortilla’s, my favorite or any flour tortilla you like. Once the bowls are done, let them cool and fill with whatever you heart desires.
Find an oven proof bowl that you can form a bowl in. Here is mine, I have three that were give
n to me by Grandma Benson and they work perfectly giving it a curve as they bake.
Spray the bowl with PAM and press flour tortilla into bowl. Spray the top of the shell with PAM to help it Brown. Place in a 375 degree oven. After 5 minutes, check the shell often to make sure it doesn’t overcook.
Remove from oven and bowl and allow to cool. That’s all there is to it!
In our house we like to place a layer of re-fried beans on the bottom, then lettuce, tomatoes, cheeses, whatever you like. I usually use leftover chicken or will grill a chicken breast to place on the top. Our family likes to top it with a mixture of sour cream and picante sauce. Use your imagination! Doesn’t have to be just for Taco Salads.
Low Cal/Low Fat…And beautiful presentation of salad. I would post a picture of the finished salad, but as most of you know, Chris gets impatient, so I got as far as the lettuce in the bowl and he was ready to eat.
