Mexican Banana Splits

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From Vegetarian Times. This is very good. I had a bit of trouble getting the 6" tortillas to fit in the muffin cup, but I folded them in a bit and it worked. It took longer than the 7 minutes for them to be crispy enough, but I could also open them up a bit to get more ice cream in once I put them in bowls. I also used 1/2 C hot cocoa mix (presweetened) for the sauce and it turned out great. You could even dip any leftover tortilla cups in any leftover sauce. Yummy!

These were really good...adults and kids alike loved them. I especially loved the Cinnamon-Chocolate Sauce it was very tasty! This will go in my keep file for a special dessert to serve company when we have a Mexican feast. Thanks again for a keeper.
