Instagram Quickie: Homemade Tortilla Chips

I realize some people probably thought I died. or ran away.

Neither of those happened. And I doubt anyone was thinking anything of my absence, but I’m back.

Hopefully regularly, but there’s a process of moving, and evil school that might want to get in the way.

A couple of months ago I acquired an iPhone. I was doubting the fact that I needed one. I felt like an old person the first few days not being able to figure anything out. I’m still learning random things.

7e0e28a24f9e11e1a87612313804ec91_7One of those things is Instagram. I’ve known it exists, but it wasn’t until my great friend Jen started posting from her newly acquired iPhone that I jumped on the bandwagon. I have to say, it’s pretty fantastic. I want to start posting some quick bits of info, once a week about whatever I feel inclined to sharing, mainly about food or clothing or a painting that involves an old lady with a case of the babyhand, and hopefully include a quick recipe for something easy. This week, it’s homemade tortilla chips. From flour tortillas. That are baked. And easy as cutting up tortillas and baking them. Duh.

It’s Superbowl weekend, and I could care less about who’s playing. When we we had a question in my journalism class pertaining to this subject I asked myself why she couldn’t ask us about Beyonce. But I would still consider throwing a party to watch the commercials. If you see this before the big game/commercial extravaganza, you can have something to impress your guests with. Or if you don’t want to go too Martha Stewart, you can make them this hummus, or this hummus, or make them some guacamole to put on their less superior chips or HOT DOGS. Aaaaand, just in case all that’s not enough, I’ve gathered up a few more game day treats for you:

Pretzel Dogs Anyone? I’m thinking every day of the week. (via Joy the Baker)
Buffalo Chicken Dip – cheese, hot sauce, and chicken. Everywhere. (via Ezra Pound Cake)
Potato Chip Madness – basically potato chips, topped with cheese and spices, and baked in the oven. (via The Bitten Word)

or you can grill up some turkey burger sliders, make a load of pizza, or buy a couple loaves of french bread, carefully slice it open and fill with meat, top with cheese, and broil for a minute or two then top with all kinds of veggies. or you can make these homemade tortilla chips:

Homemade Tortilla Chips
Makes how ever many your little heart desires.

Take some taco size flour tortillas (8″) and cut into 8 wedges.
Grab your biggest baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. NO OVERLAPPING ALLOWED.
Give a quick spray of vegetable oil, just enough for the spices to stick, and top with said spices.
A quick personal preference – kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Taco Seasoning would also be delicious. Bake in batches for 8 min at 350 degrees. SHAZAMM! Tortilla chips.
They might not seem 100% crispy at first. Give em a couple of min to cool and they’ll crisp right up.

Also last side note, I’ve been listening to the Lady Gaga Station on Pandora for about 30 min. It’s awful, don’t do that to yourself. Try the Company of Thieves Station, or GROUPLOVE’s. You’ve been warned.
