Tortilla Bowl Taco Salad

This is a meal that my special needs son enjoys helping me with. He really likes to eat it as well. I try to let the kids help with certain meals and this one is ‘his’ meal. It helps them to feel a sense of accomplishment when they are able to do things independently. I do have to supervise with a lot of the oven part but other than that he really enjoys helping to put the bowls together.

Note: We do have a set of ovenproof bowls that we use to shape the tortilla bowls themselves but you can check out this link for ideas to make them without a bowl. Continue reading “Tortilla Bowl Taco Salad”
