Well, you never showed up to eat!

So all I can share is the recipe.

The cups, I made by turning a muffin pan upside down and pressing the tortillas into a cup shape between the upturned muffin cups. Into the oven at 375°F for 8 to 10 minutes to firm them up.

Here they are prior to filling:



The fajita marinade I used is from Alton Brown.

The cups are filled with: shredded lettuce, tomatoes, grilled peppers, grilled onions, pico ge gallo, and topped with the fajita meat. Guacamole, shredded cheddar, sour cream and lime wedges were served on the side.

Can you use all the cups of the muffin pan? Or do you have to stagger them? I can image the tortillas touching each other, and hence, prevent browning.

Mine were touching in a few spots and I didn't have any issues with them undercooking where they touched. Just be sure that the shape is right before putting them in the oven. Once they've firmed up, they'll retain whatever shape they are in.

I did cook them in two batches to minimize the amount of touching.

Thank you , sir. I couldn't see spending a bunch of money on dedicated pans that would take up room in my kitchen and only be used once in a blue moon, so I came up with this idea.

On searching the net, I found that I was not the first -- but I did come up with the idea independently.

Yeah, I saw the TV commercial for those in a hotel recently. The result looks interesting, and I'm glad to see there's a way to get it without buying the product.

One thing, though: seems like bowls fried into that shape would be way tastier. Maybe brushing the tortillas with oil first. Comments?

Undoubtedly! Fried always tastes better than baked!

Saw a recent infomercial about this too. And one of the things that the infomercial bragged about was the health benefits of baking versus frying. Seeing all those bowls of chilli and cheese, guacamole, meats, etc., my thought was.... wow, they said it with a straight face !! ...

I wish! After getting the Ninja book out the door, I need to get busy on the 3rd edition of jQuery in Action.

What I do want to do (as soon as I get some spare time freed up) is to do a series of cooking videos.
