Despicable Me Tortilla Chip Sombrero Copycat

I'm pretty sure that almost everyone of us had two main thoughts after watching Despicable Me 2:
- I loved it!
- I need one of those nacho sombreros, and I need it now. 

Since finding a nacho sombrero in my local Mexican restaurant was harder than one would initially think, I decided to make one on my own! It came out pretty well, and it really tasted like tortilla chips! 

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
For the sombrero in the picture, I used the following ingredients. You may change the quantities if you want a smaller/bigger one.

- 150g of wheat flour (1 1/3 cups)
- 600g of cornstarch or, even better, cornmeal (5 cups)
- 450 ml of water (1 pint)
- 225 gr of margarine (1 cup)
- 1/2 tbsp of salt
- Some oil to "paint" the sombrero before baking it.
- Salsa, guacamole, or your favorite dip!

You´ll also need something to make the sombrero shape. Newspapers and aluminum foil should do the trick.

 
Finally I was wondering when someone was gonna make this

Ditto!!!!

I made it but I decided to skip the instruction about covering the crown piece in wax paper...oops! I also took the suggestion to use cornmeal instead of corn starch. It's pretty tasty!

All I can think of is that the Simpsons did it as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CWK5Tzss8Q
Yes! When I saw the movie I got elbowed in the ribs because I said, way too loud, "Oh My God I want that Guacamole Sombrero NOW!"
That is awesome!!! Looks exactly like in the movie!
Hope you win ;)
