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?
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,* taco 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.
