Taco Salads are those huge massive salads you'll see at Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants. They're overflowing salads built, usually, into a gargantuan fried flour tortilla bowl, which has been made and fried with special equipment.
Here, we're going to do the same basic thing, but ... without all the special equipment and with a bowl made from cheese, instead! Yep! A bowl made of cheese!
The other big different would be the use of black soy beans, rather than refried or pinto beans.
You can assemble this with hot or cold ingredients, but the recipe is built with hot fresh ingredients in mind!
Note: The recipe and method for the cheddar cheese bowl is here.
