Crunchy Taco Baskets

  • Eight Corn Tortillas
  • Olive Oil Spray
  •  2 (12 Hole) Muffin Tins

Preheat oven to 375F.  Heat the tortillas by placing in a kitchen towel and microwaving for 30 seconds. Coat each side of 4 tortillas with olive oil spray. (Keep the remaining 4 tortillas covered.) Turn a 12-cup muffin tin upside down. Nestle a tortilla in the space between 4 cups to form a “bowl.” Repeat with 3 more tortillas, making 4 bowls total. Bake until firm and beginning to brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining 4 tortillas.

Campo Viejo Tempranillo
Around $14.00

Tempranillo is the grape most often used for Rioja – Spain’s delicious red wine from the region named Rioja. (Old world wines like this are often named for the place they are made, instead of the name of the grape. Rioja must follow strict rules and regulations, and is aged. Tempranillo wines like this one are typically not aged long – so they have a fresh and clean taste of cherries and berries, and just a little earth. Camp Viejo is a large winery that uses the grapes grown in Spain to make all varieties of red, white and sparkling wine. If you see Campo Viejo on the label, you’re sure to enjoy the wine.
