I am a big fan of all things junk food. However, I am getting no younger and my old body can no longer tolerate all the junk. That being said, my taste buds are still wanting it. It's a constant battle between the two of them. One that I am caught in the middle of.
I have been doing my best to try and make both of them happy. The following recipes for chips and dip hit the nail square on the head. My body is happy~my taste buds are happy~life is good!
Baked Tortilla Chips
As you can see, there are very few ingredients necessary for these chips.
Soft flour tortilla shells
Seasoning of your choice
Preheat oven to 450*
Cut tortillas into 8 triangles.
Spray with cooking spray.
Sprinkle with seasoning.
Arrange triangles on cookie sheet or baking stone and bake for 10 minutes or until crisp. You may need to turn triangles if they are not done at 10 minutes.
While chips are cooking, you can take a couple of minutes and make the:
Spicy Avocado Dip
3/4 C. Salsa
juice of Lime or lemon
1/2 C. Sour cream
Scoop out and mash avocado. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. Serve with tortilla chips.
