I was asked by my friend Kathleen how I make my own tortilla chips, so here it is:

First, I spray a corn tortilla lightly with olive oil. If you don't have a sprayer, you can achieve the same effect with a pastry brush, just make sure not use too much oil. Then I sprinkle the tortilla with kosher salt, and maybe some cumin or something if I'm feeling ambitious. After that, I cut the tortilla into fourths and put it on a cookie sheet. I repeat this until I have the amount of chips I want, then I bake them at 375. After 5 minutes, I start checking them every 2 minutes until they are just starting to turn brown.
Done this way, the chips are delicious, and so much healthier than anything you can get at the store!

We tried these light night when I made fajitas...big hit...Chad loved them, and they were very simple...you've added much tortilla-ness to the Elliott house =)
