Taco Bowls - Make Your Own

April sent me this link at the blog, My Kitchen Cafe, for making homemade taco bowls and there is this recipe that I had found in my Kraft magazine (instead of using a jar, they use a ball of tin foil to let the tortilla drape over).

6 burrito-size flour tortillas
Olive oil or Canola oil
6 oven-safe cups or canning jars

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, place the cups or jars upside down, evenly spacing them to make room for the tortillas that will be draped over them.

Microwave the tortillas for about 30 seconds, until they are soft and pliable. Rub a teaspoon or so of oil on the front and back of the tortilla. I used my fingers so that I could make sure to coat the entire surface of the tortilla. It doesn’t need to be a heavy coating of oil, just enough to help the tortilla crisp up and not stick to the jar or cup. Drape each tortilla over a cup or jar.

Tiff's tips - I used qt. jars and took one rack out of my oven because the jars were so tall and it worked great. You could use smaller sized tortillas for smaller bowls. My kids thought these bowls were cool.
