READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

This is delicious and very easy! The tortilla bowls are very simple and can be used for many other recipes. We serve chili in them and use them for dips. This dish makes a very impressive presentation.

Beautiful presentation and I added fried tortilla strips to the top at the end. Great flavors with the chipotle, now making this a favorite for company!
