The Upside-Down Jar Method

This is a super simple way to turn your tortilla into a delicious edible bowl.

What you will need
A package of TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas
4-6 canning jars
A baking sheet

Pre-heat oven to 375℉ and arrange jars (or a couple of 1-quart oven safe bowls) upside down on the baking sheet. Drape tortilla over the bottom of the jar or the bowl and gently press to make a bowl shape.

Bake 10 minutes or until edges are browned. Let cool 3 minutes. Gently remove tortillas and let them cool completely.
