Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips

We tend to have a lot of homemade sweets and desserts on hand. I suppose that's just a side effect of writing a food blog. And I assure you that is the only reason we ever have such forbidden food in our house. I blame it all on the blog.

But every so often, the supply of sweets runs dry. This usually happens on nights when Eric and I really want something desserty before bed. I have a few quick-to-fix, minimal ingredient recipes that I rely on during those times. One of our favorite is cinnamon-sugar tortilla chips.

These are so easy and they are so good. Every time we have them, either Eric or I ask how something so simple can taste so good. They're especially great for snacking on while watching a movie.
Making them is really simple. Just take as many tortillas as you want and cut them into chip-sized triangles. (For the two of us, I usually use 4 tortillas and get 8 "chips" per tortilla.) Melt some butter in a skillet, add some chips and cook until brown and crispy on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side. Immediately sprinkle with a cinnamon-sugar combination. Add a bit more butter to the skillet for each batch and lower the heat if the butter starts to brown too much.

That's it. So easy and so surprisingly satisfying as a sweet snack or dessert.

Just made these (pretty much as soon as this post popped up in my reader) for my hubby.

He is addicted. They are so yummy!

Thanks so much!!!

I make something very similar (I brush the tortillas with melted butter & sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then bake until crispy...) and we all love them too!!

I make the same thing but spray mine with water and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar then bake until crispy. I even bake them in my toaster oven if I just want one.
You can also put some chocolate syrup and strawberries on top!! Yum Yum

I can't wait to try these. They sound like they would be good with ice cream.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
