A Spooky, Preservative-Free DIY Tortilla Chips Recipe
I love October. Pumpkin spice aside, it’s the time of year when I get to be super creative with the kids. There’s a magic in the crisp air that helps create those special moments – from pumpkin carving to costume design I’m ready to go full tilt mom mode!
I’m always looking for simple and fun recipes to add to my routine, and Spooky Tortilla Chips fit the bill. These easy to make snacks are infused with sugar, but in a time when kids are eating a ton of processed treats fresher options in my control are always welcome.
Let’s get started.
The ingredients for Spooky Tortilla Chips are simple household items:
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 8 tablespoons of butter, melted
- 1 package of Azteca Soft and Tender Flour Tortillas
Important: You’ll need spooky cookie cutters. Here’s a set that should do the trick (or treat).
- Start oven pre-heating to 350 degrees.
- Take a pack of Azteca Soft and Tender Flour Tortillas out of the refrigerator (they don’t have any preservatives or artificial flavors, so they need to stay in the refrigerator until ready for use) and cut shapes out of each tortilla using the cookie cutters you bought from the link above. Keep in mind depending on the shape your mileage may vary, but typically you’ll get 3-6 chips out of each individual tortilla.
- Prepare a baking sheet large enough for all the chips to be individually exposed to the heat of the oven by lining with foil.
- Whisk together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, then spread the mixture out on a plate for easy dipping.
- Melt butter in a small bowl, then begin dipping tortilla pieces in the butter first, and then on one side in the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place dipped tortilla pieces on the baking sheet sugar and cinnamon side up.
- Pop into the oven and bake for at least 10 minutes. You may want to bake a few more minutes if your kids prefer their chips extra crispy (mine do).
That’s it! You’re ready to serve some spooky snacks. Azteca’s Spooky Tortilla Chips can be eaten right away, or put into a sealed bag for school lunch or car rides. Easy, seasonal, and healthier than eating candy out of a bag.
