Recipe Notes

If your tortillas fall in on each other, as soon as you take them out of the oven, take the folded in tortilla out of the Taco Tender and bend it outwards. Fix these before allowing them to cool.

Waiting for the tortillas to cool is critical! If they are at all warm the ice cream will melt super fast.
