Recipe: Alison’s Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

April 23, 2008 at 11:12 am 4 comments

Alright, so it’s 2:00 in the afternoon, and those tortillas that you bought at Trader Joe’s two weeks ago are expiring soon. What to do? I know I bought a pack of whole wheat ones, dreaming of all the fajitas, tacos, and enchiladas I would make, with all of that time I don’t have.

Since I have vowed to not visit the grocery store and to cook everything left in my fridge, I’ve had to get pretty crafty. So here it is, the fucking easiest dessert recipe ever, courtesy of Alison and her infinite small-kitchen wisdom. Just remember: Cut, Slather, and Bake.

Alison’s Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take a pack of tortillas. Any kind will do, as long as it’s not something savory like spinach or tomato.

Stack the tortillas, and with a big knife, cut them into fourths.

Grease a baking sheet (I used Pam), and layer the tortilla slices on top. You don’t have to be militant about it, but do try and get as much surface area for each slice as possible. Layering over the side is fine.

With a brush or piece of paper towel (who the fuck has time for kitchen brushes?), slather some melted butter over each slice. Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on top.

Bake for 10 minutes or until fragrant. Remove and let cool, then dip into greek yogurt, layer on top of fruit, or put into parfait, etc. Or just devour them one by one while watching bad TV.

    For foreigners, what sort of tortillas are you talking about here?

    I would guess flour tortillas!

    yeah, any kind works fine as long as it’s not spinach or tomato. that would be gross.

    whole wheat is good because it gives you a false sense of being healthy before you douse it in sugar!
