    Do the tortilla boats come that way? I have never ever seen them in 4 stores I went to get some for a different recipe. Or do you form them yourself then bake them. How would you form and keep shaped till baked?

      Phyllis, the taco boats are an Old El Paso product that come as pictured. They can be hard to find. I can only think of one local store that carries them, and they don’t always carry the same varieties that Jenny uses. I would imagine you can order them online.
