How to make Taco Bowls

The weather is finally warming up, and you know what that means…salads, and we love Taco Salad in our house! Making your own Taco Bowl is really easy and takes about 5 minutes. And they are pretty healthy too, because they are baked not fried. They also take just 2 ingredients and supplies you probably already have.

We started with a 6 inch tortilla shell, but you can make them any size you like. In fact, they kind of remind me of the Mini Taco Cups that the kids love on appetizer night!

You will need…

  • Soft Tortilla Shells – 6 inch
  • Olive Oil
  • Brush – We like using a Silicone brush
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Wax Paper
  • Glass jar – I found the pint mason jars with a smaller, rounded bottom work the best

Step 1:

  • Wrap a few shells in Wax Paper and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds, this will make them easier to handle. Lay one shell on another piece of Wax Paper and add a small amount of Olive Oil to the center.

    Wow how easy is that now i can make them for weekend meals

  4. These look fun and easy to make. This is a dumb question but do you put the glass jars in the oven or do you form them and take them off the glass jars before putting them into the oven?

  5. These look great! I was just wondering how far in advance you could make these and how you could store them until ready to use? I’m having a small party and thought a taco bar would be fun. Would be great if I could make them tge night before!

    • Hi Jamey, you can certainly make them the night before. I would just place them in an airtight container, perhaps with some paper towel in case there is any oil remaining on them.
      Happy Cooking!

  6. So mine were in the oven for about 8 minutes, so I turned it on broil and that worked alot better. They immediately got crispier and turned brown.
