Difficulty Level Easy
Everyone is talking about hard economic times and we at Planet Green have been getting recession ready for many months. We know people are trying to save money here and there and sometimes the Saturday night out is the victim of cost cutting measures. So we are starting a series called Saturday Snacks of easy treats that you can make yourself and indulge in while watching a DVD or listening to music.
My daughter that suggested tortilla chips were something she would like to learn how to make, so I asked Rebecca Vandevelde, who has worked in Mexican restaurants, for some help. She sent me instructions that were so well thought out and articulated, that I'm just going to turn the rest of the post over to her.
|Mix together masa harina and water with a pinch of salt|
|2 cups||corn flour (to one cup warm water)|
|1 T||for every 2 cups of flour (but butter isn't necessary)|
As you can see from the photo, my tortilla chips don't exactly look like the wedges Becca describes. I think I didn't put quite enough water into the flour in the beginning, so they didn't roll out into neat circles as they should have done. However, I fried them and then sprinkled a mixture or cumin and sea salt on them and they were delicious.
Many thanks to Rebecca for her help.
