Zippy Tortilla Chips

When life gives you leftover corn tortillas, make chips!  I know, that's not how the saying goes, but that's exactly what I thought when I moved the package of tortillas around the fridge for the 5th time.     I searched for an easy recipe, and up popped these Zippy Tortilla Chips.

I loved the little bit of sweetness the brown sugar gave them, and the heat is easily to control.   They made a great snack with some chips, and some excellent nachos, which disappeared so fast, I couldn't even get pictures.   Thanks so much to Kim S for the recipe!

  1. A great way to use up leftover tortillas. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I don't know what it is about those last few in the package that the guys just leave them, but these made them come running!

  2. It took me a bit to get to your post, but am glad I did! Making homemade tortilla chips is a tradition at my house. My kids request that I make them a batch every time they come home! There is nothing quite like fresh chips! Yum!

    1. Glad you made it! I agree, fresh is such a huge difference, the only problem is they seemed to go much faster than the store bought. Need to make more :)

  3. I love that they are baked and the seasoning sound delicious. I am definitely going to have to keep these in mind when I have those extra tortillas taking up valuable space!

    1. I almost fried, worrying that they wouldn't be crispy enough, but they stood up great to chunky salsa :)

  4. I happen to have some tortillas in my refrigerator that have no purpose. Now they do! Love this recipe

  5. Great idea! Perfect for game day or Cinco de Mayo!

    1. Yes! I'll be making these a lot during football season :)
