I have to admit, I am pretty excited about this.
I love crunchy shelled tacos, but I hate how they always seem to crumble into a heap on my plate after the first bite. A great alternative is to make a taco bowl – which I learned the other night is surprisingly EASY (very budget-friendly as well).
All you need are some tortillas (we used corn but any will do), a muffin/cupcake tin and some non-stick cooking spray.
This really could not be much easier. Ready?
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Spray BOTTOM of muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Microwave tortillas for about 20 seconds to make them super flexible. I didn’t do this on my first attempt and I ended up with tortilla carnage. The tortillas were too stiff and kept cracking when I tried to place them in the muffin tin spaces.
Press your microwaved tortillas into empty spaces on the bottom of the muffin tin.
Bake at 425 F for 6 minutes. (Keep your eye on the tortillas – take them out when they start to brown.)
Pop bowls out of tin and fill with your favorite taco fixins!
