Ingredients

6
Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos, 8 inch (from 11-oz package)
1
container (18 oz) refrigerated taco sauce with seasoned ground beef
1
can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained
2
tablespoons sweet-spicy French dressing
1 1/2
cups shredded lettuce
3/4
cup chopped tomato (1 medium)
3/4
cup shredded Mexican or taco-seasoned cheese blend (3 oz)
Old El Paso™ taco sauce, if desired
  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. To make tortilla bowls, cut 6 (25x12-inch) sheets of foil. Slightly crush each sheet to make 4-inch ball; flatten balls slightly with palm of hand.
  • 2 On ungreased large cookie sheet, place tortillas in single layer; cover completely with another sheet of foil. Heat in oven 1 minute or just until warm. Remove tortillas from cookie sheet; place foil balls on same sheet. Top each ball with 1 warm tortilla, shaping tortilla gently to fit around ball.
  • 3 Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until tortillas are crisp and lightly browned. Remove tortilla bowls from foil balls; place on wire rack. Cool 2 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, mix taco sauce with ground beef, pinto beans and dressing. Cover with microwavable plastic wrap, folding back one edge 1/4 inch to vent steam. Microwave on High 4 to 6 minutes or until hot.
  • 5 Place tortilla bowls on plates. Spoon about 1/2 cup hot beef mixture into each tortilla bowl. Top each with 1/4 cup lettuce, 2 tablespoons tomato and 2 tablespoons cheese. Serve with taco sauce.
