It’s frugal and snack savvy and you won’t believe how easy it is to make your own Tortilla Chips. My kids love these snacking sensations and I love how easy they are to prepare. I also have found that .99 a package is a really frugal deal and makes enough chips to satisfy my crew. An added ‘frugal’ extra is that you are not adding in any unnecessary ingredients so you can keep the garbage fillers out of the diet.
When you are at your favorite store, purchase flour or corn tortillas, whichever you prefer. In my home we buy a few of each because of food allergies and my kids. Don’t forget to pick up non-stick spray(butter flavor or olive oil), sea salt, foil and your favorite nacho toppings.
Gather the following ingredients:
1 bag of flour or corn tortillas
Non Stick Spray (butter or olive oil flavor)
Foil Lined Tray
Cut each tortilla into wedges or strips. Lay on a non-stick sprayed pan or a foil lined tray sprayed with non-stick spray. Lightly spray each of the wedges/strips with spray and sea salt. Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes. Flour tortillas cook more rapidly and tend to burn so watch them carefully. Once them come out they are ready to eat. Look for golden brown chips. These are restaurant quality and a deliciously frugal snack.
My preference is for the corn tortilla because it crisps up nicer and packs a more powerful crunch. Flour tortillas burn a bit more easily and you really have to watch these as they bake. We have found that preparing them on a STONE from Pampered Chef is the best way to create these, they turn out crisp every time.
