The classic deep fried Mexican dessert chips get a healthy (yet unnoticeable twist)… they’re baked!




3  ten inch flour tortillas

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

4 tablespoons butter, melted

Whipped cream:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

4 tablespoons powdered sugar.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Combine sugar and cinnamon, set aside.

Cut tortilla into triangles and lay them out on baking sheet.  Brush one side with the melted butter and then dust generously with cinnamon sugar.  Flip them over and repeat on the other side.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden and crispy.  Remove from oven and let them sit out for 5-10 minutes while you prepare the whipped cream.

Whipped cream:

Beat the heavy cream on high until it starts to thicken.  Add in powdered sugar and continue beating until it reaches desired consistency (I like it until soft peaks form).

Serve chips warm with whipped cream on the side.
