  1. Prepare Tortilla Cups: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 6 small ovenproof bowls or 16-ounce individual casserole dishes with cooking spray. Brush tortillas with oil. Press, oil-sides up, into prepared bowls. Place a ball of aluminum foil inside each tortilla cup to maintain the bowl shape. Bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove foil. Cool completely in bowls on wire racks. Remove tortilla cups from bowls; set aside.
  2. Prepare Topping: Combine tomatillos, avocado, chilies and garlic salt in small bowl; cover. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.
  3. Prepare Filling: Brown meat with garlic in medium skillet; drain. Stir in beans, taco sauce, corn and chili powder; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Toss lettuce with tomatoes, bell pepper, onions and cheese in large bowl. Divide lettuce mixture among the 6 Tortilla Cups. Top each evenly with the Filling, then the Topping.

Cook's Tip

Make-Ahead: Tortilla Cups can be prepared ahead of time. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature up to 5 days.

I make this recipe at least twice a week for my family. They love the fact that they can eat the bowl and everything in it. It is easy to make and I love serving it up. I don't have dishes to wash only the skillet that I cooked the vegetable and meat in. I love it!!
