Today is May 5th.  Cinco de Mayo.  The celebration to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. While it is NOT the day of Mexican Independence it was was great victory leading up to it.

Kayte suggested we help celebrate with any Mexican dish from Ellie Krieger.


We have made quite a few Mexican style dishes from Ellie over the last year or so but there are still some left.  Like these Chili Tortilla Chips.  Super simple!  Cut some corn tortillas into wedges and toss wit Olive Oil, Chili, Cumin, Coriander, Garlic powder, and salt.  Then just bake for about 15 – 20 minutes. OLE’  

I think they needed just a tad more salt to bring out the flavor of the other spices.  And don’t eat them warm.  They will be chewy rather than crisp.

The recipe is from Ellie’s Comfort Food Fix (page 56).  Also HERE.
