I bought 2 packages of these wonderful white corn Tortillas. I admit, I bought too much for us to use. But they are sooo great. Two tortillas have only 100 calories and NO SALT. The ingredients are primarily just corn. Only 10 of the 100 calories is from fat.
I simply cut up a pile of the tortillas into eight pie shaped pieces.
The oven was heated to 375 degrees.
I sprayed just a spritz of Pam “Olive-Oil” spray onto the pan.
The tortilla pieces were then arranged on the pan and another quick spritz of Pam “Olive-Oil” was sprayed on top.
Just a note about these spray oils. You will notice that these sprays indicate they have zero calories and zero fat. Now that’s a LIE. Why? Because they are 100% FAT. They get away with lying to you on their labels because of a labeling loophole created by the FDA. If they make their serving size less than .5 grams, they can make all the numbers zero. In effect – they get to lie to you.
NO OIL IS GOOD FOR YOU! All oil is 100% fat. “The Fat You Eat is The Fat You Wear”. It doesn’t matter if it’s olive oil or canola oil. It’s FAT. The body literally has to do nothing to pack it away on your body as fat – because it IS fat. Granted – olive oil and canola oil are better than other oils. But that’s like saying getting shot by a 22 is better than getting shot by a 12 gauge. True! But it would be better not to get shot at all.
Now, having said that, it’s better to use these sprays than to pour oil on your food or in it. But you will put on much more than a serving as listed on the can, and it will be all fat and calorie laden. No one but the super-hero “The Flash” could press the top of the can quick enough to get a burst that is only a serving as listed on their labels.
Anyway! I placed these cut up tortillas in the oven for about 15 minutes. (Watch closely, they will burn quickly.) You want them just turning a little light brown. Notice the edges of the chips. Take them out and let them cool.
I tried some herbal salt substitute on the next batch. On the final batch I sprayed the chips with oil and sprinkled chili powder and some salt substitute on them.
Try some different flavors. Have fun with it!
