Taco Bowls......So Easy!

I've been making these Taco Bowls for years.  They are so easy, all you need is a package of medium size floured Tortilla's, and a cereal bowl. 

Simply line a cereal bowl with a flour tortilla, no greasing, no veggie spray.  Make sure its really in the bowl, and the edges are up around the rim of the bowl.  Put the bowls on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 oven for 15 minutes, until golden brown.  The bottoms still may be a little soggy, carefully remove the "Tortilla Bowls" out of the bowls, and put them on the cookie sheet.  Bake for an additional 5 minutes, this will firm up the soggy bottoms.

This is what you will have when they are done!

All ready to be filled with all the Fixings!

Fillings for the Tortilla Bowl

2 lbs of chop meat, I use 85% - Serves 4 hungry people
1 small onion minced
1 packet Taco Seasoning
2 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup water
1 can rinsed black beans or red kidney beans
2 TBS Cilantro finely minced
1 TBS fresh lime juice

Brown the meat in a skillet, drain all the fat.  Add the onion and saute until soft.  Add the water, seasoning mix, cumin, cilantro and lime juice.  Cook on simmer for 10 minutes. At this point you can add a can of  black beans or red kidney beans, make sure they are well drained and rinsed!

Fixings

1 can Refried Beans - warm them in the microwave
your favorite salsa
shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Big large salad, with tomatoes, olives, mixed with Italian Dressing!

Use your imagination, whatever you want to go with this delicious Taco Bowl, go for it!  Enjoy!
