Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
Y’all made me make these. Every time I’ve mentioned something about making TexMex someone would talk about these and ask if I’d made them before and every time someone mentioned it I’d think “Wow, that DOES sound good!”.
So I finally got around to making them and now I see what all the fuss is about. These are DELICIOUS. I love how crispy and cinnamony they are. The kids had cow fits over them, and I ended up having to make two more batches! Some folks have told me that they serve them with honey, some with a fruit salsa of sorts, and many just eat them as is, which is what we have started doing. Either way you go, you can’t go wrong!
So tonight is going to be Taco night at our house. One of everyone’s favorite meals and easy-peasy to make. I think most families love suppers made with ground beef. Speaking of which, I just came across a ground beef ecookbook I made up about a year or so ago. It contains some of my favorite go-to ground beef meals. I sent it out to my email subscribers sometime last year but we’ve had so many new folks join us (have I mentioned how glad I am that you’re here?) that I figured it was time I sent it out again. This book is printer friendly, filled with ground beef recipes, and of course it’s free! If you aren’t already a subscriber, click here to do that now so you’ll get this book when I email it out. I’ll send it out Saturday to give everyone time to sign up who wants it. I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough ground beef recipes!
Ooh, lets make some of these to go with our tacos now, okay? Sit down and get comfy, I’ll have them ready in a jif!
You’ll need: Flour tortillas, sugar, butter, and cinnamon
Of course you can use margarine if you want. This is something I’ve always received a lot of questions and emails bout, because I tend to go towards margarine and until recently you never saw real butter on Southern Plate at all. I am often asked why this is and folks expect it to be a dietary reason or personal preference. The answer to this one, like most things in life, is a lot simpler than you’d think. Margarine is a LOT cheaper than butter. Plain and simple. We all have grocery budgets and we all do what we can to stay within them. I do a lot of baking for others and margarine saves me a lot of money over the long haul. Of course, you do whatever cranks yer tractor and you know I’ll back you up on it. I think what happens in your kitchen is your business and anyone who gives you slack about it shouldn’t be eating in your kitchen . When you are doing the best you can to feed your family on a budget, don’t ever feel guilty.
Place your sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Stir that up a bit
Melt your butter or margarine and brush one side of a tortilla with it.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over.
Repeat with other side.
I used a pizza cutter to just slice it into wedges.
Place this in the oven at 350, for five to ten minutes, or until lightly browned, on each side.
Chips will crisp up as they cool.
A perfect snack on their own but a grand addition to your Taco night!
You are who you are, so be yourself at all times.
Later on no one will be shocked or disappointed.
