When the oil is fully heated, place one tortilla very gently into the oil. Press it down using a steel soup ladle very slowly until the tortilla is touching the bottom. If needed, use tongs to help place the tortilla correctly. The sides of the tortilla will float up around the ladle forming the bowl shape. (You can see the ladle handle sticking out on the left side of the picture below.)

Fry the tortilla until brown and crisp about 2 or 3 minutes.

 

Using tongs, very carefully remove the tortilla from the oil and place upside down on a wire rack to drain.

 

Repeat with the second tortilla.

 

While the tortillas drain, brown the ground beef and onion in a frying pan over medium heat. Drain the grease, then add the taco seasoning and cook according to the package directions.

 

Add the black beans to the taco meat and cook until heated through.

 

To assemble the salad, turn the tortilla bowls up-side right. Fill each with lettuce, taco meat mixture, tomato, cheese, sour cream, and Catalina dressing.
