On Saturday, I went to the grocery store to pick up some lettuce for our dinner. But, as you know, it is almost impossible to go into the grocery store and walk out with only one item. I made it out with three. We were planning to have taco salad for dinner, but when I saw freshly made tortillas, I had to buy some. They were still warm in the package and very tasty!
But, what do you do with just a couple of leftover tortillas? They can be frozen, but since I am on a mission to clean out my freezer, I decided to make Cinnamon Tortilla Chips instead. We ate them yesterday sitting on the front porch after school.
Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
4 flour tortillas
Olive oil spray
Cut tortillas into triangles. I like to stack them and then cut them into six pieces with a pizza cutter. Arrange on a cookie sheet, being sure not to overlap. Spray with olive oil spray (I use a refillable kitchen spritzer). Then sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 425˚ for 10-12 or until browned and crispy. These can burn quickly, so watch them carefully. Remove from cookie sheet, and serve immediately. Store the leftover chips in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Frugal Tip: Don't let leftover flour tortillas go to waste. Try these Cinnamon Tortilla Chips for a simple after school snack.
