Cheesy Chips quick snack

Written by: | Published: January 03, 2014 | Updated: June 20, 2014

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…

You need:

  • Flour tortillas
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Oil (I used spray olive oil)
  • Spices
  • plus a Cookie sheet

Make cheesy chips:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Sprinkle on some spices. I used California garlic seasoning and seasoned pepper. Jane’s Mixed up Salt would be yummy too.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes or until crisp.
  6. Remove from oven, sprinkle on shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  7. 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.
