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.
