Baked Taco Salad Shells

If anyone has EVER read this blog, you should all know how much I love Mexican food!  And let me tell you, taco salads are no exception!  (although I make mine more on the unhealthy side versus a REAL taco SALAD. :)  It essentially turns into a huuuuuuuuge tostada!  Anywho, to make them a touch healthier, I bake tortillas to make the shell rather than buying crap fried and packaged ones!  They come out great, nice and crispy with great flavor rather than tasting like oil!

**I do have to admit, I'd kill for the as seen on TV shell mold! But to save money, I just use wide mouthed bowls that are corningware.

Baked Taco Salad Shells

*makes however many you wanna make but I can only fit 2 in my oven at a time.

Burrito Sized Tortillas (I have used a ton of different types of tortillas and this brand is the absolute best.  They don't burn, they crisp up nice!)
Non-Stick Spray

1. Set oven to 275 degrees.
2. Spray both sides of the tortillas with the non stick spray and put in whatever dish you choose.  (I just use wide mouth corningware)

3. Put the dishes on a cookie sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes.  Check regularly after about 20 mins because the time varies with ovens.

4. When it's browned to your liking, pull out and fill with all your favorite goodies!
