Baked Tortilla Bowls (no oil)


So, I found a set of tortilla bowl molds, and knew that I had to pick them up. I think it was $10 for the set. What is awesome about these is that you put tortillas in them, bake at 375 for about 15 minutes and you get a hard taco-shell bowl to fill to your hearts content. No oil. None. You can use any kind of tortilla that you want… white or whole wheat flour both work fine. I would recommend bringing them to room temp first or they will crack. You can do this quickly by wrapping in a damp towel and microwaving for a few seconds, but not too long or they’ll dry out. Yes, you can use corn tortillas too. I know, it’s EXCITING!!!! You can also use any size tortilla you want. I went with a 6″ flour and you can see the size it made. You can also use an 8″ or 10″ tortillas for much bigger bowl all from the same mold. This is wonderful. I happened to have lentils that were in my fridge and I spiced them up Mexican-style with taco seasoning and the kids were none the wiser, but to be fair, my kids like pretty much everything so… I bought my set locally, but you can get them on Amazon.
