Need a fun Halloween snack to help shake things up a bit?
This time of year, it seems that only candy is being passed around and shared during classroom snack time. How about adding some healthy snacks into the mix? I like to serve these pumpkin tortilla chips with some salsa! Not only do these chips make a great snack, they are perfect for packed lunches too! The best part about these chips is that they can puff up after being baked. So they actually look like little pumpkins!
To make these fun pumpkin tortilla chips, we used our Toufayan sundried tomato wraps. These are so incredibly easy and quick to make—you may even start to wonder why you even buy store-bought tortilla chips at all! I only sprinkled salt this time, but next time, I think I will put some red pepper to make some spicier chips. The best part about making your own chips is that you can mix and match your ingredients. I like my chips a little bit spicier, while my daughter won’t eat anything remotely spicy. This way, I can make chips for the whole family.
And make sure not to throw out the scraps! Scraps taste just as good too. ;) Cut them into smaller pieces and add them to the tray to be baked. The pumpkin-shaped tortilla chips “taste better” to my daughter, so I let her eat those. I am more than happy eating the scraps!
These chips would also make the perfect addition to your kid’s Halloween school lunches!
MOM tip: If you are having trouble cutting through your tortilla because it is too cold or you only have a plastic cookie cutter, stick the tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds for easier cutting.
