Baked Taco Tortilla Bowls

Ditch your store bought tortillas because these tortilla bowls are crispy, delicious, made with one ingredient, and BAKED not fried!

Eating out of an edible bowl just makes any meal more fun, am I right?? Especially a taco bowl because yall know I loveee my Mexican!  Unfortunately when you get a taco shell bowl from restaurants they are usually deep fried and not the best choice you can make for your body.  And while I am all about some balance and some YOLO-ing, I wanted to have a healthier option I could make myself!  And when I tried it and it was AHH-mazing, I knew I had to spread the love and share it with yall!  This one does not disappoint.  Best part?

You only need one ingredient.

You probably guessed it – that ingredient is a tortilla!  Whatever your favorite kind is.  I am going to walk you through it step by step with pictures!

Let’s Make our Tortilla Bowls!

In addition to your tortilla you are going to need an oven safe medium sized dish to help you out.   Whether that is a bowl, or another baking dish, as long as you can fit your tortilla in it, it will work!

See below, I used a ramekin and I just dropped and pressed my tortilla into it (nicely so it doesn’t tear!), creating a bowl shape:

Once you have your tortillas in the dishes, you are ready to pop them in the oven!  You could just place the dish in the oven (depending on how sturdy it is) but to help me out I put mine together on a cookie sheet:

You will start by baking your bowls at 350F for twenty minutes.  When that time has passed, your bowls will be stiff enough to keep their shape.  So now we want to get those bottoms crispy!

Remove the cookie sheet and bowls from the oven.  CAREFULLY remove your tortilla bowls from the ramekins (don’t burn yourself!) and place them by themselves in the oven like this:

You will bake them like this for another five minutes (or a couple more depending on your oven).  This will get them crispy all around!  Just check them and see if they feel crispy and look golden brown.  Then you are ready to serve!

You can fill your bowls with anything you want, but I do share a recipe below for a super easy bowl that uses one of my new favorite ingredients – Banza chickpea rice! (Find at my Amazon shop).  This will be great for your next at-home fiesta.
