Bake tortilla bowls and prepare toppings of your choice. Put toppings in separate bowls, and arrange them in a logical order for filling tortilla bowls. Suggested order: start with rice in the bottom of tortilla bowl followed by meat, beans, & lettuce. Then add sauces—salsa, sour cream, guacamole. Sprinkle on any other options (chopped onions, cilantro, olives, etc.) and top with cheese. If you want the cheese to melt, add it earlier between the heated meat and beans.
