Salsa Worthy Chips

What a) gets me into a restaurant and b) has me excited with their menu?

Guacamole.

Found: Emily Elizabeth – Food.com

Makes 4 servings

And what do you eat with guacamole? That’s right, tortilla chips. Fried tortilla chips (they’re made how?).

Though they may seem a healthier alternative to deep fried potato chips, tortilla chips are still fried. So to include my indulgence as a daily staple, we went on a mission for a healthier (and apparently less expensive) option.

A quick search led us to baked corn tortillas. What’s so great about corn? It’s a whole grain and a gluten-free option. After burning the first batch, we made a modification to the time cooked and oven temperature.

Try a variety of herbs and spices to amp up the flavour of these chips. A great dip will turn the plain option of these chips into something worthy of snacking on.

Ingredients:

  •  4 corn tortillas
  • Toppings (optional): cayenne pepper, chili powder (my personal favourite), cinnamon with sugar (for a sweet option), cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, Parmesan cheese (sparingly)

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Slice corn tortillas into pizza slices. Depending on the diametre of the tortillas being used, cut into smaller triangles. These do not  shrink once cooked.  Spread onto baking sheet in a single layer at least 1/4″ away from one another. If too close together, the chips will be chewy rather than the desired crunchy.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Flip over the chips and rotate the pan. Bake for another 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. 
Make it a meal:
  • Pair with a bean salsa and slice up some vegetable sticks
