We absolutely love Taco Tuesday. In fact, we love it so much that often we have taco Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday! Tacos are so easy to make and throw together with any kind of meat, especially leftover ground turkey or chicken. Tacos are great in tortillas or on salads, perfect for every diet!

One of our favorite things to do are eat Tostada Salads (we call them Taco Bowls). I love the combination of lettuce and meat and beans all in a taco shell that’s not quite a taco. But those tostadas are always fried and while fried tortillas are good, they’re not quite good for you. Instead, you can make your own baked taco bowls to hold individual taco salads! These are fast and easy because they start with biscuit dough and the kids love them! Fill them with your favorite toppings to make a tostada salad or taco and serve them on Taco Tuesday!

Perfect for Cindo de Mayo, these easy Taco Bowls are perfect for a taco bar or anytime you want tacos in a different kind of shell.

Taco Bowl with toppings

What are you favorite taco toppings? We love plain cheese and lettuce, and I love avocado and olives. My husband loves sour cream and my daughter loves them plain. That’s what’s so great about making a taco bar, everyone can have their own toppings.

Have you ever hosted Taco Tuesday at your house? One of these days I’m doing to make a DIY taco bar with all our favorite toppings, like these homemade refried beans.

The best part about this recipe is that you don’t need a taco bowl maker and you don’t need to search for those new crunchy taco bowls they sell.

How to make easy biscuit taco bowls:

  • I like to slice my biscuits in half so they aren’t as thick.
  • Make sure to spray your muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. And don’t forget to flip it upside down!
  • These last a few days in a resealable bag, so they’re even great for a quick lunch!
