One day guys. Cinco is tomorrow and you know there will be obscene amounts of guacamole and salsa consumed and I think that calls for Homemade Tortilla Chips!

If you’ve never made Homemade Tortilla Chips, get ready… your life is about to change for the better. They are perfectly salty, crispy, and best when served just slightly warm. I LOVE them and can’t get enough. I season mine with a little salt and a little garlic powder to give them extra pizzazz… but you could add some cumin, paprika, cayenne or chili powder if you want to get fancy. OR… add a few sprinkles of my homemade taco seasoning! It’ll be like a taco chip… and no one is mad at that!

I’ll be serving this up with a batch of my infamous guacamole, all 3 of my salsas from Williams Sonoma and a big fat skinny girl margarita! Saturday can’t come soon enough!
