No Taco Shell? No Problem
Enjoy a quick, tasty and satisfying taco rice salad for an easy meal when you’re all set with the ingredients for tacos – minus the shells! Add some crushed tortilla chips to give that extra crunch. Yum!
This taco-without-the-shell recipe is excellent on its own. Still, if you’re looking for the full taco experience, throw this meal into a store-bought tortilla or make your crunchy shell in the microwave. Coat corn or flour tortillas with a bit of cooking oil. Then, put them on a microwave-safe plate, resting their edges against each other to take the form of a taco. Microwave on HIGH in 1-minute intervals, checking for crispness every time until ready.
