DIY Taco Bowls

There are some dishes specially designed for making tortilla bowls. I haven't tried them out myself, but they look like they would be great if you are picky about having a uniform shape and/or you have extra money and space in your kitchen for very specific gadgets.

I am not so picky and have very little money or space, therefore I wanted to find a way to make taco bowls without having to buy and store extra dishes. Thankfully my regular set of dishes is oven safe, so my regular cereal bowls work for this purpose.

These bowls were also perfect because the flat bottom meant that the finished tortilla bowl was very stable and could be used on a plate.

Materials Needed:
- Oven Safe Bowls
- Non-Stick Cooking Spray
- Tortillas

Spray the bowl with cooking spray. Insert the tortilla and shape as desired. Spray the top of the tortilla with nonstick cooking spray.

Cook at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes. Check after 10 min. Remove tortillas from the oven when they start to get crunchy. Don't worry if they aren't super crunchy yet. They become more crunchy as they cool. Allow the tortillas to cool in the bowl at least until they are stiff enough to hold their form on their own.

Fill with lettuce and top with your favorite tex-mex style ingredients (i.e. taco meat, shredded cheese, beans, sour cream, olives).

These would also be fun as salsa or dip bowls at a party.
