Homemade Taco Bowls

So I saw this clever trick to making taco bowls out of tortillas, using an upside down muffin tin.  Ooo!  Had to give this one a try.  I made the crispy bowls with the tortillas, and just filled with the normal taco fixins.  I call it a success.  Hubby said they were a bit bland, though he wasn't breaking off bits of bowl to eat with filling like I did.  So it's entirely his fault, obviously.  So maybe you could try seasoning the tortillas, but otherwise, here's how to go about it!


  • Medium flour tortillas (I made 6 which was plenty for 1 lb of ground beef)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 head green leaf lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 regular size muffin tins

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray both sides of tortillas.  Form bowls out of tortillas, and place into bottom sides of 2 muffin tins (see picture below).
  3. Cook tortillas for 7 minutes or until golden (but not dark brown as you can see bits of mine are.  I cooked mine for 8 minutes just guessing how long to go).
  4. Brown the ground beef and onion in a large saucepan over medium heat.  While browning, stir in taco seasoning.  Drain.
  5. Allow taco bowls to cool slightly.
  6. Fill taco bowls with ground beef, then cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.  Top with sour cream if desired.
