Tortilla Bowls

As a fun way to add a fancy touch to this recipe, you can make tortilla bowls. To make a tortilla bowl, lightly grease the bottom of a microwave-safe bowl or cup that is approximately the size you desire for the depth of your tortilla bowl. Place the cup, upside-down on a plate, and lay the tortilla over the dome you have created, gently pressing down the sides of the tortilla. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute, or until lightly toasted.

When your tortilla bowls are ready, fill them with Minute® Ready to Serve Organic Brown Rice along with the precooked meat and vegetables. This method is fun for kids and can also be used with our Taco Rice Skillet topped with melty cheese. Give it a new theme and make it into a Chinese Egg Fried Rice filling.
