Mexican again! But, it's timely this time, since Wednesday is Cinco de Mayo! This has become my new favorite way to serve those wonderful beans, meat, and toppings. Turning a flour tortilla into a baked shell is fast, easy, and actually just as healthy as not baking it! The best part of this recipe is that you can do a lot, or just one at a time.
Now, a word about the picture above. I am not totally immune to veggies. I was planning on filling this with salad greens, but when I went to get them out of the fridge, they were spoiled. I promise I eat my greens! :)
Baked Flour Tortilla Shells
Flour tortillas. I used burrito size; other sizes can be used.
A narrow bowl, jar, or oven-safe jug
Heat the oven to 400. Spray both sides of the tortilla and drape it over an upturned bowl or jar.
Place the bowl with the tortilla on top, into the oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the tortilla is crunchy. Remove carefully, and fill with your favorite filling!
Lime Cilantro Chicken
Spicy Crockpot Shredded Pork
Refried and Black Beans
Sour Cream (Mine in the picture has cilantro mixed in)
Eat while still warm!
