Homemade Tortilla Chips

1 Aug

As I was literally dumping the crumbs from the bottom of the bag of Tostitos in attempts to eat some yummy salsa con queso dip, I realized that those crumbs just weren’t cutting it.  It’s way too hot to run to the store, so I figured I’d make use of the semi-stale flour tortillas left in my fridge to make some of my own chips!

I doused the tortillas with butter (well.. technically vegetable oil spread, but whatever) and salt & popped them into the oven on some aluminum foil at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes.  Then I rotated them a quarter turn and let them to finish crisping up.

And yum! in less than 15 minutes I had my own bowl of healthy homemade tortilla chips.  They would probably fare better brushed with olive oil instead of butter and could use a little more seasoning, but hey. Ya make due with what ya’ve got and I can finally eat my queso dip!  They’d be great with some flavored hummus too!
