Mini Taco Bowls

Taco night are plentiful in this home.  It's easy, everyone gets to put what they want on their plate.  And I can actually get my baby to eat something other than green peas and grapes (as of late).

I have one issue with taco night.  I suck at having a constructed taco make it to completion through the duration of my trying to eat it.  The tortilla breaks.  I have misjudged my fillings and the proportions aren't right.  Inevitably I also dump everything on to my plate and make a big salad/burrito bowl out of it.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Despite my frustrations, I still love taco night.


And with these little guys, I may love it even more.


Heat your oven to 375 degree.  Give the back of your muffin tin a quick spritz with cooking spray and press mini tortillas of your choosing in between the inverted muffin cups.  I nuked my shells for about 15-20 seconds to soften them before pressing in the pan - highly recommended!



After about 10 minutes, you'll have a neat little snack of these babies.  Top with your favorite taco fare and you're set!

Nate and I each ate three (though we could've packed away another, I'm sure) and Liv ate TWO!  Avery picked out the guac and cheese.  Left the shell.  Oh well - you can't please everyone!

I keep seeing the infomercials for the pans to do this with and refuse to buy it over the phone or internet, and now I have a perfectly good reason not to! This is such a fabulous idea with tools I already have! Looks like taco night will be coming to our house this week in a supper fun new way!
