How to Make Restaurant Style Taco Salads at Home

I love ordering the big bowl of taco salad when we go out for the occasional dinner out. There’s something so festive about that big fluted tortilla bowl and all of the colorful foods that are inside of it. Not to mention you get to actually eat the bowl ; ) So when we’re at home and are craving a restaurant style taco salad we make them ourselves now. All you need is a handy little tortilla mold/pan {We featured that in our 15 of the COOLEST NOVELTY BAKING PANS SLIDESHOW} and the fillings of your choice and you’re all set! Normally I make mine vegetarian which is how the recipeĀ  is written but feel free to add your choice of chicken, beef, etc. The amount of each filling ingredient will depend on your particular preference.
