    We love these. I could just sit and eat them like chips but I try to save them for the tortilla soup!

    I made these last night to put on top of a Tortilla Soup Recipe I found on this site as well, and THEY ARE SOOOO DELICIOUS!! I had a hard time not eating them before the soup was ready.

    Just right and very simple. I made extra because I found we were eating them before the tortilla soup was done.

    I eyeballed the ingredient measurements, but followed the general recipe and cooking time. I used these on my homemade "Chik'n" Tortilla soup and they were delicious. Very crispy. I'll be making these again.

    Delicious! I cut the recipe down to 1/4 and used 2 big flour burrito sized tortillas. Cut into super thin strips and served over a southwestern grilled chicken salad. YUM! I'll be snacking on these tomorrow! Thanks!

    Just a helpful hint... A pizza cutter works great to cut these into strips!

    Tasty recipe! I added onion powder and a little granulated garlic on some and grated parmesan on others for different flavors. I also left them in for an extra minute on broil so they were extra crunchy on top (the dark areas are where I brushed the last bit of oil and spices, not burnt :)

    The tortilla strips were very good and I even forgot the salt. I used flour tortillas instead of corn. In addition to making the tortilla strips, I also used this seasoning on flour tortillas to make salad bowls for taco salad. I'll be using this recipe from now on. Thank you for posting.


I am a wife, Mother and Grandmother. I am a native Texan and can't imagine living anywhere else. My Grandmother taught me to cook before I could see the top of the counter. I remember standing on a stool in her kitchen learning to make pancakes. My Mother loved to cook and it seems she was cooking (or cleaning) most of the time. So those are the two ladies responsible for nurturing my love of cooking! <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you can see I cook and review recipes more than I post them. That's because I am a pinch of this and a dollop of that cook and it's hard to put those recipes down on paper. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
