The other day the kids were craving chips and I was too lazy to go to the store. They wanted a snack and then they wanted nachos and then they were just hungry. You'd think they hadn't eaten in days. We were out of chips but I wasn't feeling so lazy I couldn't improvise. So, I baked a little tortilla goodness with some cheese and spices and discovered homemade, on-the-fly chips are way yummier than a big ol' bag of corn chips (sometimes).
Here's how you make this cheesy chip snack…
- Flour tortillas
- Shredded Cheese
- Oil (I used spray olive oil)
- plus a Cookie sheet
Make cheesy chips:
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cut tortillas in into pie shaped slices, about 8 per tortilla. I stacked up about 5 tortillas at once and used a pizza cutter to make my slices.
- Spray the cookie sheet, place toritilla slices out individually onto the sheet. Lightly spray with oil. If you don't have spray oil, you can drizzle the oil lightly.
- Sprinkle on some spices. I used California garlic seasoning and seasoned pepper. Jane's Mixed up Salt would be yummy too.
- Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes or until crisp.
- Remove from oven, sprinkle on shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven, let cool for at least 5 minutes. Serve.
These chips are so easy to make and I think by baking them they must be better for you, right? You could add all kinds of ingredients… chopped onions, tomatoes, kale or spinach. I imagine all sorts of things would be so scrumptious! It's like little slices of crispy crust pizza and the kids really liked it.
