Homemade Chips and Salsa

Nathan is the salsa man of the house. I can do guacamole with my eyes closed (not really at all with eyes closed), but my salsa is mediocre really. Nathan has been experimenting with different kinds of peppers (his latest are pequin and habanero). He's a natural! I don't have a recipe, and I don't know that I ever will...


Chips are actually incredibly easy to make. All you need are some corn tortilla chips, olive oil (but it's not necessary), and salt! Anything else is just extra, and probably delicious.

We didn't use any kind of oil in this, but if you do you can add it just before the pieces go in the oven. About the oven, you'll cut the corn tortillas into triangles, put them on a cookie sheet and pop 'em in the oven (450 degrees) for about, um, 5-10 minutes? You want them to be crispy, like chips. It's an art once you get to the point where you just know, but this part takes a little bit of trial and error. Once they are out of the oven, sprinkle some salt and you are good. Delicious chips all for you.
