Baked Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls

Ingredients

  • Flour Tortillas (I use 6 inch tortillas)
  • Melted Butter (approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons for 4 tortilla bowls)
  • Cinnamon Sugar (see recipe below)
  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray
  • Small to Medium Size Bowls (Ramekin work great - any similar oven safe bowl will work)

Cinnamon Sugar Recipe

  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Stir sugar and cinnamon together until well blended

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray each bowl lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Microwave each tortilla (I do one at a time) for 8-10 seconds ~ this makes them easier to place in the bowls without tearing.  Next, *lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with melted butter and generously sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Place each tortilla in a bowl, gently filling the bowl and folding them where needed.  Press the center of each tortilla to make a flat bottom.  Place bowls in preheated oven on middle rack.  Bake for 15 minutes or until they are crisp and golden brown. Once ready, remove from oven, let stand for 2-3 minutes and remove them from the bowls.  Place the tortilla bowls on wax paper to finish cooling. 


*Tips 

Be sure to lightly brush with butter ~ too much will make them soggy and they won't crisp up.  During the baking process, check the tortillas to see if there are big bubbles filling the center of the bowls.  If you have any, just pop them with a toothpick and continue baking.
