Easy Homemade Tortilla Cones Recipe

Tortillas, especially homemade wheat or gluten free, can be very healthy and tasty additions to almost any meal. Tortilla cones are a great medium for seafood, gravy, vegetables, dips and can even be used to hold ice cream! This simple recipe requires only three things: Tortillas, water and a microwave.

Making Tortilla Cones

Lay a tortilla, wheat or flour variety, flat on a plate. Run tap water over your fingertips then lightly flick a small amount of water directly onto the tortilla two to three times. Fold the tortilla into a cone shape by folding about one quarter of the tortilla over itself radiating from the center to one side. Place the tortilla point down into a coffee cup. Place the cup into the microwave and cook on high for about two minutes, or until the tortilla begins to harden. Microwaving the tortilla until it is completely stiff is not necessary. You only want to remove enough moisture from the tortilla so that it just begins to stiffen. Leave the tortilla in the coffee cup and place it into the freezer for about ten minutes. You can also set it aside at room temperature for about thirty minutes. Your tortilla cone is now ready to eat! Use it to hold dips, seafood or any other food you desire. For a tasty addition for use as an ice cream cone, lightly spray the prepared cone with unflavored non stick spray, then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the cone. Lightly shake off any excess before using.

Very cool idea. I suppose we could use the same technique to make chips.

You're right you can. Just cut the tortilla into triangles, place on a most paper towel and microwave for 5 to 10 minutes or until crispy!

I've never thought of this before - tortilla cones looks like a lot of fun to make! I can make my own ice cream cones without paying a huge price for a pack. (No, make it nonfat frozen yogurt/sorbet ones because I'm watching my figure.)
