Toasted Mini Cups
Ingredients List :
Flour or corn tortillas, warmed briefly in a pan just before using
Oil for brushing
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Transfer warmed tortillas to a work surface and brush lightly with oil on both sides. Use a 6.5-cm cookie cutter to cut out circles from tortillas.
3. Press rounds into the holes of a muffin tin. Repeat until all holes are filled.
4. Bake until the cups are crisp & just beginning to colour, 5 to 10 mins. Remove from tins and cool on a wire rack.
� The cups can be made several days ahead & kept in an airtight container at room temperature, or frozen for up to 3 weeks. Frozen cups thaw quickly; to re-crisp arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet and warm at 150C for 5 mins.
� Brush with flavored oil for a change in color & flavour.
