Chicken Taco Bowl Salad

Chicken  Taco Bowl Salad
In South Africa we are not very familiar with Mexican Food, but having spend a fair amount of time in California over the last few years, I have come to love its delicious spicy taste . I have researched, bought books, googled, and pondered over a dish that I have been dreaming about for the last month and this is my version of a spicy chicken taco bowl salad. 
Because it is not covered in sauce, and uses only the freshest ingredients , its healthy and so delicious.
The Bowl 
I made the bowl from soft  tortilla wraps, but you can just make the salad  in a dish, because lets face it, we don’t all have the time to sweat the small things. If you do however enjoy the challenge, its fun, so give it a try.Make sure that your tortilla is warm and flexible and slightly coated with oil . A non stick pan will do the trick to heat it.  At this stage you can grind coarse salt over and a sprinkling of lime juice to add to the flavour, but not necessary if you are watching your salt intake. Next place a ramekin or ovenproof bowl on a baking sheet and place your warmed tortilla over it.
Fold the edges so that your tortilla lies flat against the dish and crimp the edges with your fingers. Then wrap the whole thing up with foil to keep the shape. Bake for about 10 minutes at 180 C/350 F.Chicken  Taco Bowl Salad

Take the foil off the tortilla and bake for a further 5 minutes and look how crisp and brown they become.
