Taco Salad has been a hit in my family for many years. Not only is it conveniently easy to make but it’s a meal that the whole family will enjoy. One of things that I really like about tacos is there no way to ruin your meal since you can prepare it how you like it. You can season your meat spicy or keep it mild which is always desired by those who don’t like hot or spicy foods. Adding your special toppings like fresh tomatoes, shredded cheese, homemade salsa and sour cream will delight your taste buds.
Many people celebrate the 5th of May often with a tasty cocktail perhaps a frozen margarita or a shot of tequila and of course some tortilla chips. In this household, it’s all about a fiesta specially with making this yummy taco salad.
With celebrating this Mexican Heritage, I have decided to make taco bowls instead of the just use the ordinary taco shells. By doing this, it becomes an all in one type of meal. I’ve made taco bowls plenty of times for my family and they love it!
What’s great to know, since now the taco bowl is edible, you can tear off a piece then scoop up your fixings inside just like you would do with a tortilla chip or fork.
I used a taco mold to make my bowls although you can use a large muffin pan or oven safe glassware to mold your bowls into place.
Just bring on the good stuff is what I hear from my kids. Granted, we don’t have an inch of Mexican heritage in us but we sure indulge in their foods. Considering we are a family that loves to dip, this taco recipe is a bonafide hit.
We all know how messy it can be eating tacos, so having the option to create a bowl is great specially for families. It keeps all your ingredients safely secured in the bowl without the mess.
With just the right spices, the best way to describe this yummy taco salad is pure fulfillment.You will get the intake of veggies, your dairy products and protein from the meat. It’s a fun new twist on tacos. One of many reasons why I like to prepare this meal is because it doesn’t take much time. I’ve said this plenty of times, I rather sit and enjoy my meal with my family then stand in my kitchen for hours.
The taco salad takes less than 35 minutes to prepare and make. Giving you plenty of time to still enjoy your celebration of Cinco de Mayo.
So if your looking for a fun new twist on tacos give my yummy taco salad a try.
