Chili Lime Tortilla Chips
Natalya and I have a massive chip and guacamole addiction, and this summer we have probably consumed an average of 1 avocado a day. We recently started fancying up our guacamole with mangos and pomengranate and so when I came across a recipe to fancy up tortilla chips with chili powder and cayenne pepper, it was go time!
I still have yet to make tortillas from scratch but will get to that eventually… maybe. This super easy recipe just starts with premade corn tortillas sliced into wedges (or whatever shapes you desire) which are then tossed with seasoning and baked for a healthy snack that has quite a kick! The original recipe calls for just vegetable oil but I think doing half oil and half lime juice make for a zesty combination.
