“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!”
