Mini Taco Salads

As I brag about a lot, I'm a lucky gal that has a husband that has my dinner ready every night. I still eat Nutrisystem meals regularly, he has those prepared as well.
Often though, I will eat whatever he cooks instead. This does me good.

We run out of ideas for low calorie dinners at times but last night I decided to do dinner and give him the night off. I had an idea. The fridge and pantry were rather empty and was time to go to the grocery store (but dinner first). 

With only 4 wheat tortilla shells left, a can of fajita flavored chicken, and a cup of frozen peppers and onions, I made these delicious little taco salads. They each only took a pinch of cheese, Pico and lettuce to complete. 

To make your own taco salad shell: 

Heat the tortillas in the microwave with a damp paper towel draped over them to keep them moist. About 30 seconds.

Spray the bottom of muffin pan with cooking spray and place tortillas as pictured. 

Bake 375 degrees for 10 minutes. 

Fill with your favorite fillings and enjoy.

The ones I made were less than 300 calories for two.
