    My aunt did that bowl thing LONG before those silly infomercials, her method was a big pain in the rear but she took a deep pot, slightly larger than the diameter of the tortilla shells. Filled about 1/2 oil and once it was hot laid the tortilla shell over the top of the pot and took a clean large tomato sauce can half filled with dry rice or dry brand and pushed the tortilla down with that, which made it into a bowl shape

    I like this idea better as its less mess, healthier and faster than doing them one by one :)
