Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday! If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below!
Why didn't I think of this before?
It's so easy to make baked tortilla chips! They're so good when they are fresh and hot! And they don't go stale because they're all gone soon after you make them.
Plus, they are inexpensive, assuming you have a cheap source of tortillas. I get mine at ALDI - they sell a 20 ct bag for $1.99. Or check your local warehouse store if you will use a large number of tortillas in a short amount of time. Or watch for a BOGO sale at your local supermarket.
And you can make them in whatever flavors you want. I used salt and garlic powder, but you could use pepper, paprika, chili powder, or any other spice you'd like to try. Cheese powder from a box of macaroni & cheese would work, too! Or you could make them sweet - use sugar and cinnamon. The possibilities are endless!
Here's the recipe:
BAKED TORTILLA CHIPS
4 8" flour tortillas
Canola oil cooking spray
salt and garlic powder to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray the front and backs of the tortillas with the oil spray. Cut tortillas into eighths. Place tortilla triangles on a baking sheet. Sprinkle salt and garlic powder over the triangles. Turn the triangles over and sprinkle with more salt and garlic powder.
Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes, or until the edges turn brown. Keep a close eye on the chips as they may cook quicker, depending on your oven.
Allow to cool... a little... then munch!
