Kitchen Disaster: Baked Tortilla Chips

“Make half your grains whole,” they say.  “Eat fewer processed foods,” they say.  Crackers, unless you pay $7 per box, generally aren’t whole grain.  Whole wheat tortillas, though, are much more accessible, and I had a coupon.  My goal?  Make some baked tortilla chips to replace some of the crackers in my diet.  My recipe?  We don’t need no stinkin’ recipe!  I cut my tortillas into chips, sprayed them with non-stick spray, sprinkled them with salt, and put them in the oven at 450.  I had just finished a batch of Kale Chips, so I knew my oven was on point.

Burned Tortilla Chips

Yeah.  No.  I looked in on them and they were almost done.  I looked back a minute later and they were incinerated.  I dialed the thermostat back to 425, cut up some new tortillas, repeated the process, and paid very careful attention to them near the end of the baking process.  Delicious.

If you’re the kind who needs a recipe, be watching for that in the coming weeks.  If not, enjoy these “crackers” with whole grain for less than an arm and a leg.  425 degrees “until they’re done.”
