Tortilla Taco Salad

      • 6 Fresh Harvest flour tortillas for burritos, 8 inch (from 11-oz package)
      • 1 lb prepared ground beef with Food Club Taco Seasoning
      • 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained
      • 2 tablespoons sweet-spicy French dressing
      • 1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
      • 3/4 cup chopped tomato (1 medium)
      • 3/4 cup shredded Mexican or taco-seasoned cheese blend (3 oz)
      • Food Club taco sauce, if desired
      • Heat oven to 400°F. To make tortilla bowls, cut 6 (25x12-inch) sheets of foil. Slightly crush each sheet to make 4-inch ball; flatten balls slightly with palm of hand.
      • On ungreased large cookie sheet, place tortillas in single layer; cover completely with another sheet of foil. Heat in oven 1 minute or just until warm. Remove tortillas from cookie sheet; place foil balls on same sheet. Top each ball with 1 warm tortilla, shaping tortilla gently to fit around ball.
      • Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until tortillas are crisp and lightly browned. Remove tortilla bowls from foil balls; place on wire rack. Cool 2 minutes.
      • Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, mix taco sauce with ground beef, pinto beans and dressing. Cover with microwavable plastic wrap, folding back one edge 1/4 inch to vent steam. Microwave on High 4 to 6 minutes or until hot.
      • Place tortilla bowls on plates. Spoon about 1/2 cup hot beef mixture into each tortilla bowl. Top each with 1/4 cup lettuce, 2 tablespoons tomato and 2 tablespoons cheese. Serve with taco sauce.
