Easy Dinner idea: Baked Taco Salad Bowl. (Taco bowls take 10 minute to bake and make this salad rock!)

Since the first of the year, hubby and I have overhauled our way of eating. We’ve cut excess sugar from our diets and have been limiting carbs.  (We’ve replaces the carbs in our diet with veggies, protein and healthy fats, like cheese, avocado and coconut oil.)  I still let my kids have the side dishes they love and the occasional treat, but just by having fewer desserts and chips around the house, they are definitely eating better too.  The good news is, hubby and I managed to shed a few pounds while we were at it!   Thank you to Birds Eye®, and Tyson® for sponsoring this post and helping me to continue bringing you quick, easy and family friendly recipes!

Yes, I love to cook, but there are just some evenings when I need to get dinner on the table, stat!  One of my go to meal starters is the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets and Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends.

I’m lucky that my kids will eat salads, especially when I make the salads extra special with just a few extra ingredients. Their very favorite is a Taco Salad in baked tortilla shell with lots of chicken:

Corn and Black beans: this is the Southwest Style Birds Eye Steamfresh Veggies Protein Blend. (We love corn and black beans on everything.)

Don’t forget, lots of avocado and sour cream!

And of course, you must serve it all in a baked Taco shell!

Have you ever tried to bake your own tortilla shell?  It’s as easy as placing a large burrito/wrap size tortilla in a medium bowl and baking at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  (Keep your eye on the tortilla in the last couple of minutes to ensure the edges do not burn.)  You should definitely give this a try, it will wow your family for sure.
