The next time taco night rolls around, instead of serving the same old pre-made hard shelled tacos, pull out your muffin pan, preheat your oven, and reach for that bag of tortillas in the fridge. You’re going to make taco bowls.
The blog Emily Bites explains that making taco bowls is actually really easy — all you need to do is nestle in a few small tortillas in the spaces between the cups of your upside-down muffin tin. Preheat the oven to about 190C, sprinkle the tortillas with some salt and a little water, and form them into the bowl-like shape you’re familiar with. Toss them in the oven for about 10 minutes, and you’ll have taco bowls.
She goes on to share her full taco recipe, and notes that the bowls will definitely be smaller than the kind you might get at a restaurant, so she usually serves two to each person. Still, it’s a super-easy way to make taco bowls at home without buying them pre-made, using equipment you likely already have.
