Homemade Taco Salad bowls

Love restaraunt taco salads? Now you can enjoy at home!!!


Even before I liked taco salads I have always loved the crispy flour tortilla shell! Some of the best memories of going to taco bell as a child, I would ask mom if she was getting a taco salad, then hoping she would give me a bite of the shell which she always would!!!

A few years ago I saw they had taco salad shells in the grocery store but they did not compare to restaurant shells at all.

I would settle to eat a salad on top of Tostito chips chips and that has been wonderful but last night we fixed tacos and we tried something different
