These tortilla bowls are baked, not fried. They're crispy and not as greasy as the deep-fried ones. Just be careful not to burn them trying to get the inside bottom crispy.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).n

  • Brush both sides of tortilla with oil.n

  • Invert ramekin on a work surface; center tortilla on the bottom of the ramekin. Gently shape the tortilla down around the sides. Place a double layer of aluminum foil over the tortilla and press to form the bowl around the ramekin. Place right side up on a baking sheet and leave about 1/2 inch of the edge of the tortilla above the foil so it gets browned and crispy when you bake it. Repeat with the second tortilla.n

  • Place baking sheet in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and use tongs to carefully remove the ramekins from inside the shells. Transfer sheet back to the oven. Bake shells until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven.n

  • Carefully remove foil from around the shells; reserve the foil. Flatten foil sheets and invert shells on them. Bring foil up just around the bottom of the shells to protect the top edge.n

  • Transfer sheet back to the oven. Bake until browned and crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and invert the shells once again so they are right side up. Place on foil and transfer sheet back to oven for the final crisping, 3 to 5 minutes. Watch them carefully so they don't burn.n

  • Remove sheet from oven; transfer basket burritos to a rack to cool completely.n

Chef's Note:

The diameter of the ramekins should be about half that of the tortilla. In this case, I used a 4-inch ramekin for the 8-inch tortillas.
