Daring Cooks: Edible Savory Containers

I'm a month late posting this challenge, but better late than never, and better now before I post the latest Daring Cooks installment.

Renata of Testado, Provado & Aprovado! was the Daring Cooks’ April 2011 hostess. Renata challenged us to think “outside the plate” and create our own edible containers for a savory dish.

For this challenge, I made a container from a flour tortilla, brushing it with oil and baking it until crisp.

Then I made a layered filling, making refried black beans, roasted chicken, and a spicy vinegar-based cabbage slaw.

The completed container was topped with sour cream and sprinkled with ancho chili powder.

This is definitely an improvisational dish, so any combination of spicy flavors and ingredients would work.
