Baked Tortilla Chips and Salsa

baked tortilla chips and salsa
Crispy crunchy Tortilla Chips served with tangy Tomato Salsa is a perfect Mexican appetizer to start a meal.  Tortillas are Mexican flat bread made of wheat flour or corn flour.  These crispy chips can be either deep fried or baked.
These baked tortillas are similar in taste to Gujarati Khakras. 

Ingredients:
Wheat Flour Tortillas - 6
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Tomatoes (Roma) - 4 medium
Onion - 1 small
Jalapenos Peppers/Chillies - 2
Garlic - 2 big cloves
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs
Lemon Juice - about 2 tbsp
Salt
Oil

How to bake Tortilla Chips and make Tomato Salsa:
1. Cut each round tortilla into 4 quarters and each quarter into 2 parts.  You will get 8 triangles per tortilla.  Lay them on a baking dish.  Drizzle about 1 tbsp of olive oil, little salt and black pepper powder.  Mix well and spread them.  Alternatively, you can brush each triangle with butter or oil.

2. Preheat the oven at 400 deg. F and bake the chips for 4 - 5 minutes.  Flip them and bake them for another 3 - 4 minutes or till they turn crisp.  Crisp Homemade Tortilla Chips are ready.
3. Discard the seeds of the tomatoes and chop them fine.  Deseed the jalapenos and dice them fine too.  Finely chop onions, cilantro and garlic.
4. In a mixing bowl, add tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cilantro and garlic.  Add salt, lemon juice and mix well.  You can use a hand blender and lightly mash the tomatoes if you like.  Enjoy Tangy Tomato Salsa with Baked Tortilla Chips.
5. Sometimes, I use Indian spices like chat masala for salsa.
