Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips

Ingredients: 

  • White corn tortillas
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Secret ingredient: Cumin
  • Sea salt

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice the tortillas into triangles                                                                                                                            IMG_6098
  3. Coat each triangle with a thin layer of olive oil
  4. Spread the tortillas out onto a cookie sheet lined with foil and season with cumin & sea saltIMG_6099
  5. Bake for about 8 minutes or until tortillas are browned around the edges & crispy IMG_6102
  6. I like to serve these with some black beans, salsa, and/or homemade guacamole.  You could even melt a little cheese on them to make some healthier nachos.                                   IMG_5870

These are one of the simplest things to make.  They taste so much better than store-bought tortilla chips– the cumin makes them so flavorful– AND they are much healthier as well

  • Black beans
  • Optional: Chicken or a lean cut of steak (such as top sirloin)

Directions:

  3. Top the chips & beans with cheese and place in the oven to bake IMG_4185
  4. Broil for about 5-8 min. until the cheese is bubbling & slightly toasted and the chips are browned around the edges to your likingIMG_4188

Try making different variations of these nachos varying the cheese and meats.  For tomorrow’s game, I am going to make a batch with Monterey Jack cheese, black beans & slices of top sirloin steak

Go Broncos!
