Spring has arrived and that means we are spending a lot of time in the schoolyard after the bell has rung. I am always looking for easy to make and healthy after school snacks. The kids are so hungry at the end of the day…they need a good snack. Our old standby is fruit slices, but I was looking for something more. So, I pulled out the spring themed cookie cutters and a pack of tortillas and made a batch of springtime homemade tortilla chips.
Using a spring shaped cookie cutter, cut out tortilla chips from the tortillas. Tortillas are harder to cut through then cookie dough, so you might need to use a sharp knife to cut out the fine details. We used flour tortillas, but this recipe works for corn tortillas as well. I chose a butterfly and flower cookie cutter, but you could use any shape that reminds you of spring.
Arrange the chips in a single layer, on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little salt. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes – turn over and bake an additional 5 minutes. The chips should be lightly golden and crisp.
These light and crispy chips are super versatile. They can be eaten on their own, dipped in salsa or hummus. They make a perfect healthy after school snack. We have been enjoying our tortilla chips with President’s Choice’s new Buckwheat, Chia & Hemp Mini Hummus. My girls love the added crunch of the seeds with the creamy hummus.
