Happy Monday 🙂 It’s time for Secret Recipe Club.
This month I had Rache’s blog, Rachel Cooks. I was so excited because I’ve followed her on Twitter forever and she always makes the most delicious recipes! I had a great time browsing her site. I have quite a few bookmarked to try later, but I kept coming back to this recipe for Southwestern Salad Bowls. Probably because we LOVE Mexican food and eat it several times a week 🙂
Although I didn’t follow her salad recipe exactly, I did totally steal the idea for the tortilla bowls. They’re so fun…and the perfect way to make leftovers more exciting in my house! A couple weeks ago, I made some black bean and goat cheese quesadillas to eat with my Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Peach Guacamole. I always make extra filling when we have Mexican so we can use it throughout the week. This time though, instead of just putting in a plain old tortilla, I followed Rachel’s directions to spice up our lunches the next day.
Just spray both sides of a tortilla with cooking spray, flip over a muffin tin and press the tortilla down between the tins to give it a flat bottom. Bake at 425 degrees for about 8 minutes.
Once your tortilla bowls are ready, fill them with your favorites and dig in! I warmed up the leftover quesadilla filling and scooped it into the shells…topped with some leftover guac and voila, lunch is served!
Thanks for the great idea Rachel!
