Mango-Refrigerator Cake in Tortilla Cup

Just another dessert you can make with tortilla cups. Once, again I don't make very sweet desserts so you might want to adjust the sweetness to your taste.

Tortilla Cups
4 whole wheat soft tacos
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon xylitol or granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

3 sweet ripe mangoes, thinly sliced
pint of heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon stevia or any sweetener of your choice (adjust the sweetness to your taste) 
Graham crackers

1. Filling
  • Peel and slice the mango lengthwise, about in 1/4-inch thick. Lay the slices on the plate.
  • Using an electric mixer, whip the cream, vanilla and stevia until stiff peaks form.
  • In a 9x13 rectangular dish, layer graham crackers on the bottom of the dish; spread some whipped cream over the crackers, then arrange some mango slices over the cream. Repeat the process, ending with whipped cream. Top with finely crushed graham crackers; cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or even better if chilled overnight.. 
2. Tortilla cups
  • Combine xylitol or granulated sugar together on a plate. Cut out the tortillas using a 5 1/4-inch round cookie cutter. Brush both sides with butter and coat with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place each cut out tortillas in ramekins and bake for 10-13 minutes in a 350F degrees preheated oven. Let the tortilla cups cool completely in the ramekins.
