I’ve been meaning to make some homemade cinnamon tortilla chips for a long time now, so when I ran across this fruit salsa recipe to go with it, I promptly pinned it. This weekend when I had a package of low calorie tortilla shells that just weren’t cutting it (they were dry and hard and not so great as tortilla shells), I finally made some homemade cinnamon chips. They were so easy, and the whole family loved them.
First, a little tip. I always save my spice containers to reuse. Simply wash them out, air them out, and replace with a homemade spice blend. Here is my cinnamon sugar. The goal is to one day make a cute little “Cinnamon Sugar” label for the jar, but for now this works:
The spice jar I’m using is a Tastefully Simple one (about the size of a 12 oz. container of Lowry’s Seasoned Salt). In a bowl, combine 1 ½ cup sugar and ½ tsp cinnamon. (Feel free to use more cinnamon if you’d prefer a stronger cinnamon taste). Mix until combined and then pour into your repurposed spice bottle.
Now that you have your cinnamon sugar ready, here’s how to make the chips:
What you need:
-Don Marcos Healthy Soft tortillas (10 shells) ($.99)
-Melted Butter (or non-stick spray) ($.00)
-Cinnamon Sugar ($.05)
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; Coat your tortilla shells with a light coat of melted butter, or spray. Sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar and cut into 8 wedges (I used a pizza cutter). Bake for about 7-9 minutes, or until crispy and brown.
