Tortilla Chips

I searched high and low on DC for tortilla chips, and didn't find anything recent.

I have a big batch of salsa I'm making and 3 packages of flour and 3 packages of corn tortillas. I want chips.

What I've found, is corn tortillas, brushed with oil, cut in triangles, baked (and carefully watching them), then seasoned with salt. Ideas for other seasoning? I love the lime seasoned ones, and the nacho cheese flavored ones, but how?

Any other ideas? Any way to make flour tortillas into chips, or is that a no no? What do you do? TIA

You can buy all kinds of flavored "salts" billed as popcorn salt.

I make pita chips and assume tortilla chips would work the same.

Cut them to size and sprinkle with garlic powder and oil then bake. Tortilla chips would work the same. Whatever you want for seasoning. Try lime, chili powder, garlic, onion.

For the lime/salt chips, I'm hoping to figure out if I can use citric acid for the lime taste.

For the nacho flavored chips, I'm thinking my cheddar powder and/or cheddar whey powder might be a base for those.I'd need to add some seasoning I'm guessing.

Patty, thanks though, I hang out at the space bar too.

Andy, do you actually sprinkle them with oil or brush them with oil, and does it make a difference?

Actually, I spray them with oil then sprinkle with garlic powder.

Bliss--I make my own tortillas and I add lime zest and chilpolte to the dough. But, I would suggest spraying the tortillas with salt water to which you add lime and chilpote rather than drizzling with salt, etc. Disolve the salt in water, and add the rest, mist the chips and then bake.

They make that flavor also.
When I bought a bunch a few years back they had more of a varietyFireworks Popcorn - Popcorn Seasonings. This is a place to start your search.

Interesting ideas.

CWS--are you saying spray them with the flavored water then the oil? or no oil at all?

Patty, once I run out of powdered cheddar cheese, I'll give the search a try. I'm trying to use the powder and see if I can make something tasty out of it besides mac and cheese.

I thought I'd get this done today, but, it looks like I won't get it done until tomorrow, I'm looking forward to the results, I'll report back.
Garlic, chili powder....mmmmm maybe a little cayenne too.

Kernel Seasons has a nice sprinkle too. Chili Lime, Jalapeno, Sour Cream and Onion, and Hickory are what I have. It's made for popcorn, but is nice on other stuff. Their motto is "no more naked popcorn!"
