Doggie Chips and Salsa

This is Project Number 5 in my "Scottie Dog Cookie Cutter" series.  I'm using my cute little vintage Scottie Dog cookie cutter because he's just so dog-gone cute.  But you can use your favorite cookie cutter, or a variety of cutters for any of my projects.

Scottie Dog Baked Corn Chips
I love chips and salsa but often run out of chips before salsa.  So I decided to make a batch of my own.  Luckily we usually buy the large quantity of corn tortillas, so I had those on hand.

Just cut out as many chips as you'd like to eat:

Experiment some by cutting a stack at once, trimming around your cookie cutter to cut a large batch at once.

Coat with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for about 5 minutes.  Turn them over and bake an additional 3 minutes or until crunchy just the way you like them.

Serve on a vintage glass snack {dessert} plate, adding a good heaping of guacamole sauce and your favorite salsa.

A fun and yummy snack, kids and adults both will enjoy!

Happy Spring!

Oooh! I have made chips with corn tortillas before, but they never seemed quite right. Now I see that I was missing the olive oil part! I am going to go make some right now.
