Make Taco Salad Tonight

I love making Taco Salad. It is so easy to make. When I make them I have a taco bowl kit. I add a tortilla shell into that taco bowl baking dish, throw it in the oven until it’s a little crispy and has formed it’s shape. The kids love it because they get to eat the bowl too!

This recipe doesn't call for taco shells, but if you want to add one on the bottom or make a bowl with a tortilla shell and bake until a little crispy would also be incredible.
