To begin heat your frypan over medium heat and add your oil to warm up. Once warm drop in your tortilla shell and gently swish around in the pan to cover the bottom in oil. Allow to cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side or until golden and puffy.
Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Remove tortilla shell from the frying pan and place it directly into the bowl. Mold into shape. Preheat your oven to 400F, and place your shells in their bowls into the oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until the oil has dried and taco shells are crispy. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Cut and prepare all portions of your taco salad. Once your bowls are cool, add salad into the bowls. Top with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole, serve and enjoy!
