Baked tortilla chips

These are easy and great little snacks or sides that is quick to make. For this recipe, you can use whole wheat tortillas or as I have used, “lompe”. I can’t actually seem to find a good English word for it, but basically, it is a tortilla made from potatoes. In Norway, it is typically used to serve hot dogs in, but it is versatile and mild in flavor.

This time, I used some leftovers to make chips for the boys to have with dinner. It is extremely easy and you can season it according to who you are serving it to. For the boys, I go very lightly with salt and other seasoning. I mainly used some of the homemade paprika spice and a little bit of mixed spice.

I used 4 potato tortillas today. To ensure these are as healthy as possible, be careful when choosing your brand at the supermarket. Check the ingredients list and choose the ones without harmful fats and large amounts of salt. In today’s market, you should be able to find good, whole wheat or other darker floured tortillas that will be brilliant for making these chips.

Cut the tortillas into small wedges.
Spread them onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Season with the spice you like.
Cook in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 5 minutes. They should be a little crunchy. Check them and give them a few extra minutes if needed. I make them a little soft for the boys, so an additional 3-4 minutes in the oven will make them more crispy.

What to serve this with?
It is a nice side for a tapas spread.
It goes well with various dips, like salsa, guacamole, hummus or similar.
As a side to dinner with kids as I did today.
As a snack, which is much healthier than your store bought crisps. You could have this in addition to some cut vegetables and a nice tatziki dip.
These are also wonderful as a side for a vegetable soup or a salad.
