Mini Taco Salads

  • 8 (six inch) 6" corn soft tortilla shells
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4-5 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup taco sauce 
  • (any other taco salad toppings you'd like)


Pre-heat oven to 350F.Wrap tortilla shells in in a damp paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. This will make the shells flexible.
Spray the back of a muffin pan with non-stick spray. A normal muffin pan will hold/bake 3 shells at one time. Lay shells over bottom of muffin pan, space them out over the bottom of the pan. Press the shells down into the groves to form a cup. (See photos for example) 
Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. *continue to do this until all bowls are baked*
Brown beef in a large skillet. Once brown, add taco seasoning and stir. Drain grease. Fill taco shell bowls with beef, cheese, lettuce, taco sauce.


Yield: 8 mini taco salads
