Have you ever made your own healthy tortilla chips? I’m about to shock you because these are super easy to make. All you need is a Pizza Wheel or scissors to cut the tortillas and a little spice to make them delicious.
I made this recipe one day when I needed some salsa, but was unable to run to the store. I love it with everything, but my favorite combo is Healthy Tortilla Chips with Salsa and B&E Merlot and a warm afternoon!
The spice brings out the flavors in Merlot, and don’t stick your nose up at Merlot! Better known as the Bordeaux grape, it’s making a BIG comeback! Order some B&E and you will be a believer like this food and wine journalist is.
