Cooking tip

To make tortilla bowl: Lightly spray the outside of an oven proof 2-cup liquid measuring cup or medium bowl. Place upside down on a baking sheet. Press a 6- or 8-inch flour tortilla over bottom and sides of cup. Bake in preheated 325°F oven 7 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Remove tortilla from cup; cool completely. (Prepare tortilla bowls in 1 or 2 batches by using a variety of oven proof cups and bowls to drape the flour tortillas over.)
