Wayne's Official Taco Salad

Fancy Taco Salad Bowls
2 12" flour tortillas
1 lb. beef (any of your personal choice cuts of steak), sliced thinly
1 cup sweet corn
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 heaping tablespoons of sour cream
2 TBS fruit salsa (mango or peach recommended)
1 TBS taco seasoning
2 TBS lime juice
salt to taste
lots of lettuce, possibly 3 cups?

Start by putting flour tortillas into two separate oven-safe bowls. The size depends on how deep or wide you want your taco salad to be; I would generally recommend bowls that are 6" in diameter. Stuff the tortillas into the bowls, creating a bowl out of the tortilla. Shred the cheddar cheese into the base of the bowl. Stick into the oven on the lowest rack at a broil for about 4 minutes, or until the tips of the tortillas are brown and the tortillas are to your preferred crunchiness. Take out and let cool.  read more »
