Seafood Stick Tortilla Cup

There must a time when you are left with too many tortilla wraps and not sure what to do with it. Well, I have found a way to use them! Instead of the usual tortilla chips, make them into little tortilla cups instead! You can always fill the cups with whatever filling you fancy. The recipe below is for fillings made with seafood stick. I know it is processed food and will not be very healthy but that was what I had in the fridge as my backup food and it’s tasty. So when you are out of ingredients and have too many tortilla wraps, this could be a lovely option. Seafood stick is also handy for a quick addition into Tom Yum Soup or anything for that matter. Get creative!

Below is a step by step compilation of images and further down are the ingredients and methods.

Quarter the tortilla wraps and push each quarter into ramekins or muffin tray, whichever you have handy. Make sure the edges are pushed through but be careful not to break it.

Once all the ramekins or muffin tray is filled with tortilla wrap, fill each of them with some shallots and bake.

Fill the crispy tortilla cups with the mixed fillings and top with basil leaves.
