Southwestern Taco Salad Reviews

  • Ive never had meatless taco salad before so this was a nice switch. I found that the rice, while wonderful on its own, didnt have enough flavor to carry the entire dish, so I ended up adding a little more seasonings.

  • 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.

  • 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 wayNext time, I will try adding some chicken or beef to it, but really, its just fine like it is.I served mine with chopped avocado, sour cream, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Delicious

  • 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.

  • Fun flavors in this colorful dish.

  • This is MY go to restaurant style meal i have a mexican store in my neighborhood and they make the MOST YUMMY mexican bows OMG i making pork taco meat / fresh pinto beans / mexican rice and then im going to fill the bowl with rice at bottom then beans then pork taco meat then cheese / shredded cabbage/ tomatos/ peppers on the side OMG this is SOOOO YUMMY

  • 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 didnt stick to the bowel. That also gave a bit more flavor and moisture to the tortilla. I will definitely make again.

  • 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.

  • This is a nice base for a meatless option. Im a carnivore so next time I plan on adding some fajita chicken strips or steak strips.
