    Make the Tortilla Bowls

    Make two loosely-packed, softball-sized balls out of foil, each about 5-6" in diameter. Place foil balls on baking sheet and lay a tortilla over each. Coat tortillas with cooking spray. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Reserve baking sheet. Turn on broiler. While bowls bake, prepare ingredients.

Spread into a single layer and broil until beginning to blister, 3 minutes. Carefully remove baking sheet from broiler. Toss corn and return to broiler until lightly charred, 3 minutes. Remove from oven.
