I first made these trying to stuff the tortillas in the muffin pans cups, but then my wonderful husband sent me this picture on google+:
That is how I’m going to make them next time! I can’t wait to try it out so we are having them again right away! I used Mission Artisan Style Ancient Grains Tortillas for our taco salads their nutrition facts are: 100 cal 3 fat 18 carbs 3 protein 3 fiber per shell. That way I hope you can compare your tortillas and count your calories accordingly.

These turned out so good I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. I served my husband 2 shells since he is not on a diet and has a bigger appetite than me.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
