Homemade Ranch-Flavored Chips

I love making things homemade even if it takes awhile to make, like jerky or fruit roll-ups.  And I really love making things from scratch that are quick, easy, and very yummy.  Like these ranch-flavored tortilla chips that take all of 10 minutes from prep to cooking.  Here's how!

What you'll need:

  • Salt (1 tsp.)
  • Paprika (1 tsp.)
  • Ranch Dressing Mix ( 1 tsp. powder)
  • Season Salt (1 tsp.)
  • Creole Seasoning (1 tsp. )
  • Oregano ( 1/2 tsp.)
  • Thyme (1/2 tsp.)
  • Salt (1 tsp.)
  • Black Pepper ( 1/2 tsp.)
  • Flour Tortillas ( 1 package-10 count)
  • Olive Oil (3/4 cup)

You'll also need:

• A Pastry Brush
• Small Bowl
• Pizza Cutter or Large Knife
• Large Baking Sheet

Mix all ingredients into the small bowl and stir to combine.  Let sit for 10 minutes to incorporate the seasonings into the olive oil.

Give the mixture another quick stir with the pastry brush before brushing onto stacked flour tortillas.  I like to stack them into piles of 2-4 each.  Paint the mixture onto the top of the stack, then move the bottom tortilla to the top.  Repeat that process till every tortilla has one side painted.

With your pizza cutter, cut the tortillas into triangle pieces, sort of like cutting a small pizza.

With the same pastry brush, run the brush over the top of the baking sheet, just enough for a very, very thin layer.  No need to re-dip your brush, just use what is on the brush from brushing the tortillas.

Lay the triangles onto the baking sheet seasoning side down.  Try not to overlap the tortillas and with your pastry brush, give the tortillas a light coat on the other side.

Bake for 6-8 minutes in the oven at 300 degrees.  Be sure and check throughout the cooking time to make sure the chips aren't getting too brown.  All ovens are different, so watch closely and adjust cooking time for remaining batches.

After cooking move to a large plate and allow to cool, or serve warm.

Serve with salsa, or eat just the way they are.  

You can also make your flour tortillas homemade as well.  I would recommend the Lonestar Taco Kit HERE!
