Easy as 1-2-3




I love to eat anything that has a crunch. Even better if it's healthy! These flour tortillas can be found in almost any freezers of health food stores.
-Mix some of your best olive oil with some chopped garlic. Brush the mixture on each side of the tortilla. I added some good coarse grey salt on top and fresh pepper. Sometimes I only brush them with olive oil and then sprinkle some garlic and onion salt. Your imagination is the limit! I then take kitchen shears and cut the tortilla in bite size pieces. Spread evenly on a a baking sheet and bake in a 320 F. until crispy. turn them once during baking and watch closely, they easily burn.

-Take leftover or fresh french baguette and slice thinly. Spread on baking sheet and bake in oven at 350 F until nice and golden brown, turning once. As soon as they are out of the oven, brush both sides with the same mix of olive oil and garlic and sprinkle with your best salt. Store any leftovers in baggies or airtight container.

Enjoy with cheese, onion confits, spreads, dips.....
