I made Pita Chips with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus(again super easy) a little while back..they were a hit at my house! Those crispy munchies were perfect for a person like me who likes to chomp on something while watching a movie or a TV show.  My family loved those super crunchy pita chips and that hummus was the creamiest I’ve ever had. The idea to make Tortilla Chips was actually inspired from that recipe and these chips were again a hit!! I guess its got something to do with my family loving crispy food. :p But I promise you’re going to love them. You can even dress these Tortilla chips and make Nachos at home. Just load them up on a plate and serve with salsa, guacamole (my recipe here) and some sour cream. I love a few spring onions here and there..and maybe some cheese too.. they taste great!

These chips are very versatile. I’ve made the most basic version..with olive oil and salt but you can add in a little paprika and some dried herbs if you like! They’re a super food and never fail to impress guests. Wait till you tell them that these are homemade and they’ll shower you with praises! I can bet you on that ! :D
