Baked Tortilla chips constructed from tortillas and somewhat oil. Good for utilizing up leftover wraps!
I usually purchase a pack of tortillas for filling and including to lunch bins. Nonetheless, I don’t at all times get an opportunity to make use of all of them up earlier than they begin to go stale. Reducing and popping them within the oven, to make baked tortilla chips, is the proper resolution.
I’ve made tortilla chips with a variety of various tortillas and, personally, I really feel corn tortillas produce the very best chip. If you’re purposely going out to buy tortillas to make these chips, then I’d advocate getting corn ones. It’s value it.
Nonetheless, I not often purchase corn tortillas as they’re much less in style right here. I due to this fact discover myself making these chips with what ever tortillas I’ve. Every selection produces a barely totally different outcome however each my boys appear proud of all of them. They’re simply hooked on that crunchy texture that youngsters appear to like.
Pictured above are the method steps. Begin by evenly oiling your first tortilla after which stack your second on prime, evenly oil it and repeat with the remaining tortillas. Minimize your stack in half after which lower every half in half once more after which as soon as once more. It will present eight stacks. Pop the chips on a baking tray and bake till golden and crisp.
In fact, you don’t have to stay to triangle chips. Cookie cutters are a good way to make enjoyable shapes that youngsters love. As we’re quick approaching Christmas, this week I made a decision to make some Christmas chips.
My prime ideas when making baked tortilla chips….
Don’t crowd your baking tray. I strive to not allow them to over lap. Slightly overlapping is okay but when they’re too crowded they received’t crisp up.
Baking instances will range relying on ovens and the the tortillas. I like to recommend staying near the oven and maintaining a tally of them. Now isn’t the time to shortly hang around a load of washing (sure I’m speaking from expertise!) The baking time might be round 8-12 minutes.
Enable the chips to chill within the baking tray earlier than serving. This permits the chips to grow to be extra crispy.
