Week 7 - Taco Bowls

This idea comes from Emily at EmilyBites - her instructions can be found here.  A few weeks ago I showed you our family's attempt at Crockpot Mexican Chicken.  When I came across this idea, I just knew that it would be a fun way to serve this up, as well as our other favorite southwest dishes.

You start by preheating your oven to 375F.  Next, sprinkle some water on both sides of your corn tortillas. Stack them on a plate and cover with another plate turned upside down.  Pop them in the microwave for about a minute or until warm.

To bake the tortillas, turn a 12-cup muffin tin upside down.  You will want to spray your tortillas lightly with some non-stick cooking spray.  Place them on your muffin tin as shown in the photo below.

The only thing left to do is to stick them in the oven for 8-10 minutes.  They don't get as crunchy as if you were frying them, but you could turn the broiler on for about 30 seconds to resolve that issue.

Fill with your favorite toppings and serve while still warm.  The kids absolutely loved them!!
