Snack time

These are my late night / mid day snack quite often. They take such little time to make and have a great crunch to them.

The recipe for the creole seasoning listed below is very versatile. Besides these baked tortilla chips I use it on popcorn, mix it in with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese and use that to make a crispy crust for mac and cheese, mix it in with some butter, garlic, Parmesan cheese and use it on top of garlic bread, and I also used it for my Cajun Chicken Strips from the other night.

Flour tortillas (any size)
Olive oil for brushing
Seasoning (I use the creole seasoning below but you can use anything you want)

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Take a tortilla and brush it lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle on seasoning of your choice.
- With a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla in half. Fold the two halves together and cut stacked pieces in half. Then cut each half in half. You should end up with 8 pieces per tortilla.
- Arrange pieces onto baking sheet in single layer.
- Cook for 5-8 minutes (depending on the thickness of your tortillas) or until tortillas are crisp.
