Corn Chips, Anyone?
I feel a bit like Rose- telling you "what I made today." Some bug bit me this afternoon, and I decided to make some corn chips using an old recipe I have.
No one in their right mind would make these on a regular basis. You have to roll out each chip by hand. I made them a couple of times, long ago, when the boys were small. After working on them for over an hour the chips were gobbled up in just a few minutes with no fanfare- probably even some complaints that they don't taste like "real" corn chips.
These are baked. They actually taste a bit more like corn crackers than chips. You can sprinkle the tops with any seasoning you like. I tried several today, but my favorite turned out to be celery salt.
Here's the final result. They are a nice treat, and I sure appreciate every one as I eat it. This is surely a novel way to motivate myself to eat less.
If you want the recipe, I've written it up at Homemade Corn Chips- You'll Appreciate Every Single One
