Dried Bread Chips - Dipper

Ingredients:

  • artisan bread rolls (regular bread rolls are not stiff enough to dip)

Method:

Slice as thin a possible. Arrange on a parchment lined cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 min. Toward the end, watch to make sure they are not getting brown as they will taste burned.

Baked Tortilla Chips - Dipper

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. flour tortillas

Method:

With a sharp knife, cut tortillas into pie shapes or rectangle shapes. Make them the size of tortilla chips that you would buy. Spread them in a single layer on several cookie sheets covered with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Spray the tortillas with a squirt bottle filled with water until slightly damp. Sprinkle with a cinnamon and sugar mixture or with just sugar. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 to 45 min. watch them closely so they don't get brown.

Jicama Dippers

Ingredients:

  • Jicama

Method:

For jicama chips, peel and halve jicama. Cut jicama into 1/4-inch-thick slices with a sharp knife. The jicama slices can also be cut into fun shapes using cookie cutters. Serve with salsa.
