- 1/2 cup caramel sauce
- 2 teaspoons dark rum
- Vegetable oil for deep frying
- 2 tablespoons coarse white sugar
- 1 package Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 bananas, each cut into 12 slices
- 3/4 cup vanilla ice cream
Step 1 In small bowl, mix caramel sauce and rum; stir until blended.
Step 2 In deep fat fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 inches oil to 350°F. Add sugar to gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Step 3 Fry boats in batches in hot oil 1 minute on each side, using tongs to turn boats halfway through, until lightly brown all over. Drain boats upside down on paper towel-lined cookie sheet until slightly cool. If middles of boats are puffed, gently press down with back of spoon. Toss 4 boats at a time in sugar to coat. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
Step 4 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add banana slices, and cook 1 minute while gently stirring. Add 1/4 cup of the rum caramel; stir to coat, and remove from heat.
Step 5 Divide bananas mixture among fried boats; top with small scoop (about 1 tablespoon) ice cream, and drizzle with remaining caramel.
