Sometimes, I buy those HUGE packs of corn tortillas, because they're so much cheaper. You know what I'm talking about? It's like 60 corn tortillas. No one could ever eat that many, but for the sake of saving money, I am duped into buying the mega package.
So what to do with too many corn tortillas?
Homemade tortilla chips!
Surprisingly simple. I found a recipe in this cookbook that I got at the library on Monday:
The recipe is pretty easy and straight forward.
In a big bowl or ziploc bag, combine 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon each of ground coriander, ground cumin, garlic powder and salt (and add a pinch of cayenne if you like spice.)
Cut up 12 corn tortillas each into 6 wedges.
Add the tortilla wedges to the oil mixture and toss to coat evenly.
Spread on a baking sheets and bake until crisp, about 20-25 minutes.
(I don't think these would stay crispy for more than a day so eat them up quick!)
