Homemade Spicy Tortilla Chips
I rarely purchase store bought chips anymore. It is healthier and more fun to make my own creations at home. I use corn or flour tortillas and this is also a great way to make use of any extra tortillas before they go stale. Feel free to experiment with the spice blend, get creative, or even try to recreate your favorite name brand flavor.
This spice blend is plenty for a good snack, but sometimes I’ll serve these with a nice dip, salsa, or fresh guacamole. For an extra hearty version, I top with chili and cheddar cheese…obviously the fat content rises with that!
4 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Stack the tortillas and cut them into six wedges. Arrange the wedges on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Spray the tortilla wedges with nonstick cooking spray and then sprinkle with the spice mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Cool and serve.
