Just in Time for Cinco de Mayo

One of my favorite chips, something I like better than crackers or corn chips, is flour tortilla chips.

I usually make them myself from flour tortillas, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Spread triangles of tortilla on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Cut the tortillas in triangles and place on a baking tin. Drizzle with olive oil and shake on salt and pepper.

Keep an eye on the tray so they don't burn.

Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown and crispy.

A plate of tortilla chips will be popular with family and guests.

These are delicious served alone or with salsa, queso, nacho-style with melted cheese and salsa on top.

A sweet version of these chips can be made by substituting cinnamon sugar for the salt and pepper.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. I used to broil shredded cheddar and sliced jalapenos on flour tortillas (or use butter and cinnamon sugar) to create something similar. Mmmm … wonder why I haven’t done that in years…
