Taco Bowl Time!

Serve whatever toppings you want on top of chips, or bake your own taco bowls! Put each topping in a small bowl and let everyone put together their own salads. Be sure to get an adult’s help.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

  2. Gently press a tortilla into each bowl. Put the bowls on the baking sheets.
