We often give you the opportunity to make new dishes and try new techniques, but we don't often teach you how to make your own dinnerware. Relax, we aren't sending you a kiln and pottery wheel. (Can you imagine the postage on that?) But we will teach out how to a crisp a tortilla into a crunch taco bowl, one that you'll fill with a zesty salad of chicken, fresh vegetables, and chipotle ranch dressing. Leave the pottery to Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze (RIP), you've got a delicious dinner to prepare.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Make the Taco Bowl

    Make the Taco Bowl

    Make two loosely-packed, softball-sized foil balls, each about 5-6" in diameter. Place foil balls on prepared baking sheet and lay a tortilla over each. Lightly coat top sides of tortillas with cooking spray. Bake in hot oven until golden brown and crispy, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. While taco bowls bake, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely. Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice. Peel husk off corn and carefully remove kernels from cob. Mince cilantro (no need to stem). Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, halve lengthwise. Cut halves widthwise into ¼" strips

  • Step 3 - Cook Corn and Toss Salad

    Cook Corn and Toss Salad

    Place a large non-stick pan over high heat and add 2 olive oil. Add corn to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to char, 2-4 minutes. Transfer corn to a mixing bowl. Add romaine, tomatoes, corn, and dressing and toss to combine. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Chicken

    Cook the Chicken

    Return pan used to cook corn to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken strips and a pinch of pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Transfer chicken to another mixing bowl and toss with seasoning rub.
