Home Made Tortilla Chips

I always buy tortilla chips but for Superbowl this year I will be using this recipe to make some (as well as buy some in case it's a fail on the home-made chips)

What's great about these is that they are lower caolries but equal taste...

What you'll need:
- 1 12-ounce package corn tortillas
- 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3 Tablespoons lime juice
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

What to do:
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Next, cut each tortilla into 8 wedges (like you would a pie or pizza) and arrange the wedges in a single layer on a cookie sheet. (I've heard wax paper is useful to avoid sticking, we shall see)

You will need a mister and if you don't have one, a spray bottle might work, but not as efficiently as a mister would. With the mister, combine the oil and lime juice. Mix it well and then spray each tortilla chip wedge until it is slightly moist.

Then, combine the cumin, chili powder and salt in a small bowl and sprinkle on the chips by hand.

All you need to do is bake for about 7 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for another 8 minutes or until the chips are crisp, but not too brown. Serve with salsas, garnishes dips or guacamole.

I will let you know how it turns out.
