Roasted Garlic Tortilla Chips



Here's a cool way to use left over tortillas in case you don't want to make another taco or quesadilla. The flavor of the oil and garlic infused together brings a twist to the classic tortilla chip. A little Italian twist. These are baked, too. I wanted to add some parmesan, but I didn't have any on hand.

If you just want the regular salted version just coat the tortilla wedge with some olive oil and sprinkle some salt over them.



Roasted Garlic Tortilla Chips

4 taco sized tortillas (Cut into wedges)
3 Large garlic cloves (minced)
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
Dry Parsley
Salt
Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Preheat oven 350˚F

Mix together the olive oil, garlic, parsley and a pinch of salt. Let it stand for 5-10min to let the flavors fuse.

Then lightly coat both sides wedges with garlic mix and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for 10-15 min or until crisp.

Enjoy with some salsa, dip or a nice bowl of soup.

They look delicious and perfect with a hummus or other dip - of course just by themselves would be equally good.

Elra said...

You are really creative Jenn! Sounds really delicious with garlic.

The Duo Dishes said...

And they always taste much better than what you buy in the store. Less salt, more tortilla. We love cumin and chili powder to add a little spice!

Jen @ MyKitchenAddiction.com said...

Great idea... I always seem to have an assortment of leftover tortillas lying around. I will have to give these a try! I saw a roasted red pepper dip a while back that would be delicious with these... if I can only remember where I saw it. :)

doggybloggy said...

what a great idea - and baked is cool too for more than health reasons - they stay flat!

ericriveracooks said...

Those are definitely leftovers that I would be happy to eat!

Sweta said...

Good idea Jenn-whole wheat tortilla chips with a nice garlicky touch sounds perfect!!

alice said...

What a great way to not waste those tortillas.

burpandslurp said...

I love this idea of "frying" your own tortilla chips and putting your own desired flavor! this could come personalized in all sorts of variations!

Justin said...

this looks good. i'm thinking some hummus on the side would be great.

girlichef said...

Oh yeah, these sound amazing! Delicious!

I love the way you mix your metaphors. Italian flavors, on a Mexican staple, served in a Chinese "to go" food carton! GREG

haleysuzanne said...

Roasted garlic? Homemade chips? This is snacks done right! Bookmarked!

Jenn said...

Robert-Gilles: LOL

Lori: Thank you.

Greg: I do love mixing it up. =)

haleysuzanne: Sweet!

pigpigscorner said...

What a great idea! I can imagine eating them with curry now.

TavoLini said...

Smart! Did you use flour or corn? I suppose both would work--but I'm curious as to whether or not corn gets crispy enough in the oven...

Pam said...

Nicely done...these look so tasty. I don't think I could eat just a few.

Jenn said...

pigpigscorner: Mmmm...Curry.

TavoLini: I used wheat. Corn would work well too. They'll definitely crisp up.

Pam: you'll be grabbing handfuls of them.

Daily Spud said...

Nice idea, I like it. I like it a lot!

lisaiscooking said...

Sounds great with garlic. Wish I had some extra tortillas sitting around right now!

Jenn said...

Daily Spud: Thanks.

Lisaiscooking: Why not just buy some more? =)

Tangled Noodle said...

Late as usual! All of these are gone, I'm sure. Now I have to rummage in the refrigerator for my leftover tortillas. This is too good to pass up!

Jenn said...

Tangled Noodle: The party is always rolling.

Bread and Jam said...

I am a big texture eater so these look delicious!

Jenn said...

Bread and Jam: They are very delish!

Zriz said...

Wow Jenn! another fab idea! We always throw away the last few pieces of tortilla because they go bad....

I'll try this one out the next time we have some left over...

Jenn said...

Zriz: Thank. This is a great way to not let leftover go to waste.

Felicia said...

I love this idea because currently, as we speak, I have NO bread in the house... I just so happened to have tortillas though...Ironically Enough..lol... I just made some tomato and spinach pasta with pork tenderloin... And I'm about to use your recipe for my garlic bread substitute! THANKS FOR PUTTING YOUR IDEA ONLINE because I can't LIVE WITHOUT GARLIC BREAD SOMETHING AND PASTA!!! LOL... ;-)

Anonymous said...

I made these to go with a Mexican shrimp soup I prepared....they were great and easy. Didn't change a thing. Next time will make a double batch.

Kath Kely said...

Just made these & they were amazing :) would go perfectly with a french onion dip

Making spaghetti and meatballs and needed a garlic bread idea but no bread - this is perfect!
