Taco Salad

Not much to say about this dinner - you can't go wrong with taco salad! I've never baked the tortillas into a bowl shape before, but it was pretty simple and kinda fun. I just took 2 small bowls that could go into the oven face down on a cookie sheet, sprayed both sides of the tortilla with cooking spray, laid the tortillas over the bowls and baked for 10 minutes at 450.

I browned some ground beef and seasoned it with the following taco seasoning. I only used 1/2 in the meat and saved the other 1/2 for next time.

Taco Seasoning:
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
14 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika

Our tomatoes are starting to be picked faster than we can eat them, so this salad didn't have dressing, it just had a lot of fresh salsa made from red & yellow tomatoes, red onion, 1 serrano pepper, 1 hot banana pepper, cilantro, lemon juice and a little salt.

Layers in bowl:
chopped iceberg lettuce
ground beef
fat free sour cream
cherry tomatoes - halved
I could eat this every night. I forgot the beans!
