Episode: Labor Day BBQ

Microwaved Tortilla Chips

To revive old tortilla chips, put them in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. The warmth of the microwave reactivates the oil in the chips, enhancing the flavor and crispness.

Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

Create a mixture of equal parts Hungarian paprika, cinnamon sugar and kosher salt in a bowl. Sprinkle it on top of warm tortilla chips. This seasoning mixture is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.

Chile Lime Tortilla Chips

Sprinkle a store-bought chile lime seasoning over your chips to give them a Mexican-inspired upgrade. Chile lime seasoning can also be used on top of a fruit salad.
