I’m having a bit of deja-vu today, or maybe it’s just that ‘pregnancy brain’ thing kicking in because as soon as I uploaded the above photo I feel like I’ve seen it before. Like… like, I’ve taken it before.
So hmm… a quick perusal of my food posts on this blog tell me that I have not (at least) shared my chips with you before, so I’ll continue my post. (Although I still think I’ve shared them somewhere in the past… in which case I’m going to be contemplating where all day)
OR… maybe it’s just the fact that I make these chips for myself ALL THE TIME that has me feeling that way.
You see, Aaron buys the bags of little corn tortillas quite frequently because we love to make little street tacos or fish tacos for dinner! But there’s like 40 tortillas in a bag, and despite our love of little tacos we just can’t eat that many tortillas fast enough before they get crumbly or stale.
And yes, I realize we could probably freeze them or vacuum seal them or something for later use… but… I’d rather make chips.
Because while I can’t eat tortillas every day, I will gladly eat tortilla chips every day! :)
And seriously, these are so quick and easy to make! (And maybe slightly healthier than the ones at the store since they are baked not fried, but they are still tortilla chips…)
Ok, ready? Take tortillas, spray with oil (i happened to have garlic evoo in mr. misto today), cut them into chip shapes (or not), spread in single layer on pan, sprinkle with whatever you want (today’s choice was lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and salt), and bake at 350F for about 15 minutes or until starting to brown (I usually rotate pan once in the middle of bake time).
I like to eat them pretty much directly out of the oven, today I ate them for lunch with some leftover refried beans and corn. :) Yum.
I love the lime juice on them!! But try whatever spice combos you want!! I mix it up with whatever strikes my fancy from the spice rack that day! I’ve even made some cinnamon-sugar ones that weren’t half bad if you’ve got a little sweet tooth!
Now… off to try and find these chips elsewhere in my photo backlog to make sure I’m not delusional. ;)
