Mini Taco Salads

My family loves taco salad, this recipe is one that my mother-in-law introduced me to when my husband and I were dating.  It has always been a go to recipe for us even in my years before cooking regularly because it is so simple!  Typically when we serve it we serve it with Fritos; however, a friend of mine introduced me to making these easy taco bowls using a muffin tin.

I was perusing Pinterest one day and spotted them there too over on Salad in a Jar.  I adapted mine using corn tortillas and skipping the oils.  I simply used a non stick cooking spray and sprayed the muffin tin with it.

I thought this would be perfect for our taco salad, plus you could also use these for guacamole, bean dips, 7 layer dips and a variety of other dips and meals.

All you have to do is flip your muffin tin upside down using the opposite side that you would normally use.  Then, I heated up a few corn tortillas in the microwave to make them more pliable.  Next I greased my pan with non stick cooking spray and placed them in between the muffin tins to make the bowls, lastly I just baked them for a few minutes!  These turned out perfectly and hold their shape really well.

If you have taco loving kids too, these are fun for them as well, because it is just their size!  I also thought these would be good to take to parties or pot lucks!

Enjoy this fun taco salad!
