How To Make Taco Bowls – Two Ways

This was one of those hacks when I saw it on Pinterest, I thought “yeah, that isn’t going to work…..”

And then, amazingly, it did.

So, needless to say, I pleasantly surprised on how these bowls turned out by using just a common kitchen tool – a 12-cup muffin tin.

I took this hack a step further and experimented with both corn tortillas (gluten-free option!) and flour tortillas as well as different sized tortillas. I  came up with two methods for making taco bowls – all you’ll need is that muffin tin, your oven and your choice of soft tortillas.

Get your kids in the kitchen to help out with this one! And then have them help cut up the salad ingredients and put in bowls to serve as a taco salad bar – it might open them up to a new topping.

Thanks to these taco bowls, my 10-year old is now eating bell peppers and shrimp. #score

Ingredients

Scale
  • 6-inch soft corn tortillas
  • 8-inch soft whole wheat flour tortillas

Instructions

For corn tortillas:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Wrap 3 tortillas in a wet paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to soften.
  3. Turn a 12-cup muffin tin upside down. Spray with cooking spray.
  4. Place each tortilla between the cups so they form a clover shape.
  5. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes.
  7. Repeat for as many taco bowls that you need. Serve taco bar style with chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, avocado, beans, shrimp, chicken, tofu, shredded cheese, salsa and/or cilantro.

For whole-wheat tortillas:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. For each tortilla, gently rip or cut halfway to the center. Form a cone and place in tin (you’ll be able to bake 3 taco bowls at a time.)
  4. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes.
  6. Repeat for as many taco bowls that you need. Serve taco bar style with chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, avocado, beans, shrimp, chicken, tofu, shredded cheese and/or salsa.
