A note about serious food allergies

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.

    1

    Make the Tortilla Bowls

    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 tortillas with cooking spray. Bake in hot oven until golden brown and crispy, 11-13 minutes. Let baked tortilla bowls cool, 5 minutes. While tortilla bowls bake, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely. Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice. Mince cilantro (no need to stem). Pat chicken breasts dry and, on a separate cutting board, halve lengthwise. Slice chicken into ¼" strips across the width.

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over 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 a mixing bowl and toss with seasoning rub. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook Corn and Toss Salad
