Today is a big day in our household: aka it’s Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game as manager of Manchester United! What an incredible man who has done so much for not just United but for soccer and the English Premier League in general. Alex, we will miss you!
Yesterday was also a big day in the game of soccer, because it was David Beckham’s last game of his 20 year career! Not only did he have an incredible career, being the only english player to win major league titles in 4 different countries, but he’s probably the most famous and celebrated players of all-time. We wonder why…? 😉
Oh, David, how we will miss watching you run around on the soccer pitch!
As you can imagine, there has been a lot of soccer watching here lately, and with games being at least 90 minutes long, half-time snacks are a requirement. After all, to cheering takes a lot of energy, right?
A few weeks back, we posted a recipe for salsa and mentioned how we would do a Simple Sunday post about our home-made tortilla chips – well, here they are! 🙂
These are about as simple as they get, people! There are only 4 ingredients, and they take 15 minutes tops to make. All you need are some tortillas (we like to use the small ones best), lemon or lime juice, course salt (sea or kosher) and pepper. That’s it!
These are great for when you want chips and salsa (or nachos) but don’t have any on-hand, or if you want chips that are full of flavour but much lower in sodium than their store-bought counterpart.
So whatever your sport, grab some salsa and get snackin’!
Home-made tortilla Chips
Prep time: 2 min
Cook time: 12-15min
Your favourite tortillas
Lemon or Lime Juice
Sea salt (or kosher)
Ground black pepper
Pre-heat oven to 375 F.
Spread the tortillas across a baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with lemon or lime juice, salt and pepper. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the tortillas into triangles. You don’t have to cut all the way through them, just enough to draw lines so that they will easily snap once baked.
Put in the oven and bake for 8min, then flip the tortillas over and bake for another 3-5min, until golden and crispy.
Serve with your favourite salsa and enjoy!
