New ways to upgrade dips
Wow guests with not only delicious dips, but also homemade chips.
“If you have a little extra time, it’s nice to have the baked chips,” suggested chef Janice Wiley of The Seasoned Artisans and Too Busy Cooks. “They do come out really well.”
She uses store-bought tortillas, seasoned to taste, and offers some baking advice.
“You have to catch them just at the right minute,” Wiley said.
Baked Tortilla Chips
INGREDIENTS ¼ cup margarine melted 2 teaspoons chili powder ½ teaspoon ground cumin ½ teaspoon parsley flakes 2 teaspoons lime juice 6 burrito-size flour tortillas INSTRUCTIONS Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except tortillas. Brush mixture on one side of each tortilla (sprinkle with salt, if desired). Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges (a pizza cutter works great!). On a greased baking sheet, arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer. Bake about 8 minutes or until golden and crisp. Serve warm or cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Makes 48 chips.
Homemade tortilla chips “come out really well,” says chef Janice Wiley.
