Taco Salad bowl!

Ok, so I didn't follow our meal plan for yesterday but it was a good thing... we had taco left overs in  the fridge and I wasn't feeling like soft tacos SO... I made a taco salad bowl, in the oven! it was SOO good!

Heat the oven to 450
Take a tortilla and put alittle olive oil on it and put in a oven safe bowl ( at first I had the bowl flipped ofer and the tortilla on it)
bake for 10-15 minutes.
remove and fill.. (we had beans, taco meat, rice, cheese and lettuce)

Easy dinner and my husband was jelous! he said next time we have tacos, he wants one! LOL
