Tortilla Bowls

by Anne Bennett on October 9, 2012

I can’t believe I’m sitting here at 10:45 in the morning munching on a crunchy whole wheat tortilla bowl. But after photographing it for Hungry Poodle I found it to be, well, irresistible.

How did I acquire the means to make this culinary wonder? Walgreens, of course, in the “As Seen on TV” section. Where else does one shop for quality kitchenware?

Before you click away to a real food blog, bear with me. This all began yesterday morning, when I received an email from my friend Martha, who raved about this pan set.

Martha is a fellow Weight Watcher who has been getting into clean eating lately, so I was inclined to listen up. Besides, the investment of about 10 bucks wouldn’t set me back too much.

Here’s what you get in the set: four nonstick fluted pans and instructions on how to bake tortillas, either regular or whole wheat.

It’s no brainer cooking–you bake them at 400 degrees for about 5-7 minutes until they’re golden brown. Allow them to cool and then fill them with veggie chili,*┬átaco salad, even guacamole.

I allowed my chili to sit in the bowl for awhile to see if the bowl held together and it did. In fact, it even stayed crispy.

Is this a gimmick? Do I even have to answer that? But what’s wrong with gimmicks if they make healthy eating fun? And there’s no clean-up–you eat your bowl!

I’m guessing that you can find these from other “As Seen on TV” sources, but I do know that most Walgreens carry them.

*This is a slow cooker recipe, but yesterday I made it on the stovetop. Same ingredients, just a shorter cooking time.
