Beach Bungalow Tortilla Chips

8 Jul

I love Tortilla Chips with Salsa and a Margarita and hubby likes to have a beer.  However,  the bagged tortilla chips are not the same as the  chips we get in the Mexican restaurants. Lately here at the beach house we have making the tortilla chips, which I could say are close enough to the ones served in restaurants. Here is  my  easy recipe for Beach Bungalow Tortilla Chips they are baked not Fried!  Enjoy!
