Hello, I’m new to the group. I hope to find and share a lot of neat
ideas here. I’ve been trying to learn how to economize the past
couple of years.
I don’t eat chips that often any more and don’t really buy them except
for special occasions. But I usually keep corn and flour tortillas on
hand in the fridge. When I have a craving for chips, I lightly spray
both sides of the tortilla with olive oil (I have one of those pump up
sprayers and I love it).
I cut them into 6 or 8 wedges, load them all
on a cookie sheet, and bake at 350F for about 15 minutes (adjust time
and temp to what works for you). They’re not salty like the store
bought, but they do just fine for us. If you really have to have the
salt, you could probably sprinkle a bit on before baking.
If I am
feeling particularly industrious that day, I may actually deep fry
them instead of baking them. I usually use the corn for the usual
tex-mex salsas and stuf. The flour tortilla chips go pretty good with
Occasionally, if I want something sweet, I like to eat the
flour chips with a honey and cinnamon spread/dip.
