Taco Salad For One

If you have read my post for yesterday you know that I am on my own here for about a week. Eating by oneself is no reason not to take the time to prepare something special. Today I made a taco salad for myself.

It started by making whole wheat tortilla bowls. A couple of tart molds and the Cuisinart® Oven Central® work great for that.

To keep the tortilla shell crisp throughout the meal I lined the bowl with a dry piece of ice burg lettuce.

I mixed a little ketchup and some fajita seasoning Faye had put together with some refried pinto beans. After heating the beans in the microwave oven I added shredded queso blanco and heated them another minute before transferring them into the bowl.

and finally, a dollop of sour cream.

But why stop there? I hadn’t used all of the chopped, sliced and shredded ingredients, so I piled the rest on top.

Homemade fermented hot sauce is an appropriate dressing for taco salad.
