Homemade Tortilla Chips
I buy about a bag a week, so I have spent almost $200 in the past year on chips!
Plus, I get really frustrated when things don’t go on sale. I can’t recall ever getting a deal on them or seeing a coupon for them. I have bought the super inexpensive brands, but they are not BAKED! Baked chips have 1/2 the fat and are more healthy than the regular kind. I had to find a way to get my chips on the cheap!
Here is what I found: a recipe for homemade, inexpensive, and easy baked tortilla chips!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the tortillas out on a cutting board. Spray lightly with the non stick olive oil spray on both sides. If using a salt, sprinkle on both sides. Stack the tortillas in piles of eight. Using a s michael kors outlet harp knife or pizza cutter, cut through the pile of tortillas, cutting into 4 or 8 equal triangles depending on how big you like your chips.
Arrange tortilla triangl michael kors outlet es in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake for approximately 6 to 7 minutes until crisp and the edges start to curl and turn lightly brown. Watch the ch michael kors outlet ips carefully after 5 minutes, as they can burn easily. Once the chips are done, remove from the oven to cool. Chips will continue to crisp as they cool down. These keep for about michael kors outlet 1 2 weeks in a Ziploc type bag.
This very easy and cost effective. If you cut the chips into eighths, you can make 288 chips for less than a dollar! I have never counted the exact quantity of Tostitos per bag, but according to the nutrition guide on the back, there are around 150 chips in there. That means by making these home made chips, I am saving almost $6.00 on every batch. After one year of making the chips instead of buying them, I will have saved over $155! Yea!
