Yummy Taco Salad

Last night for dinner I whipped up some yummy taco salads. Aaron had to work late so I had dinner ready when he got home......Now usually when we have taco salads we will crush up chips for our "bowl" or we will just skip the entire shell/chip part and make a simple mexican salad. Anyways....in case you are wondering where Im going with this.....Last night I decided to make some taco shells. This was super easy...and plenty of you probably already do this but incase some of you never have I wanted to share bc I thought it turned out great and I must say even Aaron "aka the chef" was pretty pleased and even wanted seconds.


{I apologize that its kinda hard to see but this was my shell out of the oil}

So here it is....I just took regular flour tortilla that we make tacos or fajitas with and vegetable oil. I put a good amount of oil in a deep frying pan....once the oil was hot I dropped in a shell. Let it get good and covered you will notice when it starts to fry a bit.....I then pressed the center of the tortilla with a laddle and watched it form a bowl. I then removed the shell from the pan and placed it into a bowl and there you have it....a taco shell for your taco salads! Simple, fast and yummy!
