|Home Made Taco Flavored Tortilla Chips|
These are just a simple variation on Home Made Tortilla Chips. You can even do this to plain store-bought tortilla chips. You know, when you have a quarter of the bag left and you're tired of the lack of flavor in them, or you've run out of salsa to go with them. They're super easy to make, so why not?
I started putting taco seasoning on tortilla chips a while ago, because when I was a kid I used to LOVE the Doritos Taco Flavored Chips. I think they still make some version of them, but they're not the same. This isn't the same either, but at least I'm not reaching into a bag expecting the same flavor from my childhood and then being let down.
I can't say that the spice measurements are exact here. I usually just sprinkle away until it looks right and then add more if I need to. Today I added the hot chile powder to give them a nice kick, and I liked them a LOT. The ones you see pictured were gone several hours ago.
So, if you have some corn tortillas, cooking oil, and some taco seasoning around the house, I suggest you try these. Good stuff.
Taco Flavored Tortilla Chips
When chips have cooled, place in a large bowl and sprinkle with taco seasoning, chile powder, and more salt, if desired.
Toss chips in the bowl to distribute the seasoning.
