Yummy Taco Bowls

Tonight for dinner I tried a new recipe that was both fun and delicious. My husband said it was a winner! It was also very quick and easy. My only suggestion is that if you have a two year old, you might not want to put the cilantro on his/her bowl. Isaac stated very emphatically that he didn’t like the “flowers”!
Taco Bowls
Prep Time:
20 min
Total Time:
20 min
4 servings
4 flour tortillas (8 inch)
1 Tbsp.  chili powder, divided
3/4 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 cup  matchlike carrot sticks
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick ‘N Chunky Salsa, divided
2 Tbsp.  KRAFT Mayo Light Mayonnaise
4 cups torn salad greens
1 large  tomato, chopped
1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Four Cheese Mexican Style Cheese
1/4 cup  chopped fresh cilantro

PREHEAT oven to 425°F. Crumple four large sheets of foil to make four 3-inch balls; place on baking sheet. Place 1 tortilla on top of each ball; spray tortilla with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with 1/2 tsp. of the chili powder. Bake 6 to 8 min. or until tortillas are golden brown. (Tortillas will drape over balls as they bake.)

MEANWHILE, brown meat with carrots and remaining 2-1/2 tsp. chili powder in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Add 1/2 cup of the salsa; cook 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

MIX mayo and remaining 2 Tbsp. salsa in large bowl. Add salad greens and tomatoes; toss to coat. Spoon into tortilla shells; top with meat mixture, cheese and cilantro.

(I also added a few teaspoons of Taco seasoning in the meat just to give it a little more flavor.)

    I love making Taco Bowls. We sometimes drap the tortillas over bowls to get the shape too.
