Spiced Tortilla Chips
8 (12") flour tortilla wraps
Spice Blend:
2 tsp cumin, ground
1/2 tsp coriander, ground
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp celery salt
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Caramelized Onion Dip
1 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup onion, minced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
For the chips Preheat the oven to 325°F. Mix together all the spice blend ingredients and use a pastry brush to âpaintâ one side of the
tortillas with the spiced oil. (Donât use too much. The tortillas should only have a very light coating, and not be at all wet.) Stack the tortillas and cut them into triangles. Spread out the triangles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place them in the oven for about 20 minutes. Check after 15 minutes to ensure they are not burning. They should be dried out and crispy like a cracker/chip. Cool.
For the dip Preheat oven to 400°F. Blend together the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and add the onions. Cook them until they have turned a deep brown. Remove the pan from the stove and add the garlic, stirring until it stops sizzling. Add this to the cheese mixture. Mix well and spread in a small casserole dish or oven-safe dish. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the mixture has softened and warmed through. Yield: 2-4 servings
