Previously on F&W’s Mad Genius Tips, whiz kid Justin Chapple proved you can satisfy your crispy tortilla bowl craving without succumbing to any deep-fat fryer guilt. Now that you have a healthy edible bowl, fill it with a healthy salad. Here, five crunchy and delicious salads perfect for your homemade tortilla bowls:
1. Mexican Chopped Salad with Beets and Walnut Dressing
Seek out vacuum-sealed beets, which are preroasted and peeled, and use store-bought chips.
2. Southwestern Tortilla Salad
This Tex-Mex favorite comes together in minutes. You'll be surprised by how quick and easy it is to make your own refried beans—and how much better they taste than the ready-made variety.
