I've never had meatless taco salad before so this was a nice switch. I found that the rice while wonderful on it's own didn't have enough flavor to carry the entire dish so I ended up adding a little more seasonings. Read More

I made this for dinner last night and forgot to buy the spanish rice so made my own. It turned ok but will be adding more spices to it. I did find some taco shell bowls to use instead of the tortillas and we loved it. Read More

I really liked the taco bowles. Although I did spray the tortilla and the bowel with butter flavored cooking spray before putting in the microwave so it didn't stick to the bowel. That also gave a bit more flavor and moisture to the tortilla. I will definitely make again. Read More

I liked the recipe and always read the reviews. I purchased the taco bowl molds and googled how to use them. It said 375 for 15 minutes. I was tickled when they came out perfect or so I thought. I bought the yellow corn tortillas and the cooking instructions said to use them at room temp. When I took them out of the mold after cooling for 2 minutes I immediately put in the lettuce rice mixture cheese and sour cream. The tortilla bowls were hard to break and hard to chew. I thought they would break like chips. What did I do wrong? I made another batch and left them in 10 minutes same result. I love this idea but want to eat the bowls not just use for show. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Read More

This recipe fell a little short for me. The tortilla bowl was not as crisp as I would have liked. The rice was great on its own but when added to the salad it got lost. This recipe as written needs a good salsa to carry the dish for flavor. Read More

This recipe would make a nice Meatless Monday meal. I agree with another reviewer that it lacked the spicy kick that my husband and I prefer. For that I simply stirred in a couple Tbsp Hot sauce to the mix before assembling the salad. I have a confession to make.... I tried to make the shells out of the flour tortillas and they were a disaster so I used tortilla chips for the bottom of the bowl. Turns out my husband actually love it that way! Next time I will try adding some chicken or beef to it but really it's just fine like it is. I served mine with chopped avocado sour cream cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Delicious! Read More

This is a nice base for a meatless option. I'm a carnivore so next time I plan on adding some fajita chicken strips or steak strips. Read More
