Make these chips for the Fourth of July.
The perfect snack.
Crunchy, cheesy, quick, fun. These chips have it all.
Throw them together for a healthy and easy food to munch on while waiting for fireworks. You can even get the kids to help you out!
Cheesy Star Chips
Sliced cheddar cheese (you can try a different type of cheese too)
Chile powder or paprika
2 star cookie cutters (one bigger than the other)
Preheat oven to 350F. Use the bigger cookie cutter to cut out stars from the flour tortillas. When I made these chips I used 2 flour tortillas and that made about 15 stars. Bake stars in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, take sliced cheese and use the smaller cookie cutter to cut enough small stars to cover all the bigger ones. When the tortilla stars finish baking, place cheese stars in the center of each one and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Sprinkle chips with spice of choice and let cool before eating. Store leftovers in an air tight container (please note that the longer the chips are left out after baking, the chewier and less crunchy they get)
What to do with leftover tortilla/cheese scraps: You can make more cheesy chips by using the same process ( baking time may be less if you're using small pieces) or you can make plain salted tortilla chips (bake only once for about 7 minutes).
Snacks are always a great thing to have on hand, especially on those nights when you'll be staying up late.
These star chips are great to munch on because they're portable, easy to make, and totally something any kid would love.
So, why not add them to your Fouth of July snack table?
