I love making homemade tortilla strips and it's a yummy addition to any mexican dish (I prefer topping a cafe rio salad with them or taco soup recipe) and it's a fun activity to involve the kids in.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400ish degrees.
Step 2: "Paint" corn tortillas-
This is the part that the kids will love! Just pour a small amount of vegetable oil into a bowl, grab your basting brush and let them "paint" both sides of corn tortillas.
Step 3: Cut the tortillas-
I typically cut mine into strips but you could definitely cut them into triangles to make chips instead. I'm sure a pizza cutter or knife could work too but I prefer my kitchen shears.
Step 4: Lay strips on an ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt-
Step 5: Bake for 5-6 minutes. Flip strips over with a spatula and bake for an additional 5-6 minutes or until preferred crispiness is achieved. I would show you a picture of them all baked up but we ate them too fast!
