–Our Dad is certainly is no slack in the kitchen either. He created this recipe when trying to cut back on fried foods way before it was general knowledge just how bad Taco Bell’s fried taco salad bowl was for us. Added plus, it’s delicious as well as healthy!
“Azteca” brand flour tortillas
Mild taco sauce
Mexican or shredded Jack cheese
*Re-fried beans (if wanted)
Tabasco green pepper sauce
Cook hamburger and small diced onions. When almost done add taco sauce. Salt and pepper to season. Keep warm.
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Remove as many tortillas as needed and re-seal package. Lightly moisten tortilla and prick with fork on a flat surface. Center tortilla on tortilla bowl form (if you don’t have a form you could use a small, deep bowl). Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place on center rack of preheated 350F oven until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp. Check closely as all ovens perform differently. Remove tortillas from the form(s) and place on serving dish. Put about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture in the bottom of the tortilla and add shredded lettuce followed by, in order, small diced tomatoes, small diced onions, some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Serve with Tabasco.
*If using re-fried beans, add heated beans before the meat mixture.
