  • Prep Time 30 Minutes
  • Servings 10
  • Ingredients 8


  • 1 lb strawberries, sliced (4 cups)
  • 7 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 10 Old El Paso™ Taco Bowls™ mini soft flour tortillas (1 sleeve from Party Pack)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup crushed shortbread cookies
  • Mint leaves


Step 1 Mix strawberries with 3 tablespoons of the sugar; refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.

Step 2 Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each bowl. Place 3 tablespoons of the sugar in large resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place bowls, a few at a time, into bag, and gently shake until bowls are coated in sugar. Place bowls on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Bowls will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.

Step 3 In chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream, remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Step 4 Use slotted spoon to divide strawberries among bowls. Top with a dollop of whipped cream; garnish with crushed shortbread cookies and mint leaves.
