Hi All!

I'm cutting out corn...so... I was hoping someone might have some ideas about making own "tortilla chips".

I was wondering if I could, somehow, take my brown rice tortillas and bake them (or something) and cut into "strips".

I enjoy making my own salsa and would like to find a good replacement for my corn tortilla chips.

Any ideas (easier the better ;) ) would be greatly appreciated.

Now THIS is funny! I, the world's worst cook, am responding to a post about cooking! :lol:

I think your best bet would be to cut them into strips/chunks first and then fry them. You could either deep fry them or use a large skillet with enough oil to cover them.

OR, if you can find those Sesmark Rice Thins, even though they are a cracker, I think they would be great with homemade salsa.

Now, as PAYMENT for this sage advice, you could send me a jar of that salsa! :lol: My Mom used to make her own out of the organic peppers and tomatoes that my Dad grew and it completely spoiled me for that store-bought stuff. I haven't had any in years!

Thanks for the suggestion...and the smile you put on my face!

I am addicted to homemade salsa! Absolutely addicted...could (and do) eat by the bowl full... ;)

I even put in a wrap...as a garnish for grilled meats. It's my "go to" snack food...

Definitely cut into strips then fry or bake if you want strips. If you fry or bake first, you can just break them into pieces as they will be brittle. I make chips like this all the time and use with hummus, salsa, chutneys, in salads for crunch, Green Goddess dip, roasted red pepper and walnut dip...endless options. Darned addictive, aren't they? :P

Awesome... (duly noted on the "cut first"...thanks guys!)

I'm going to try the baking method tonight... (I don't do much frying so the confidence level is pretty low). Any idea on temp/time for baking?

I'm taking a pack of tortillas out of the freezer right now... :)

    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?  
    • So I have started my daughter on a magnesium citrate supplement.  I also took a does the first night so I have an idea of its effects.  (background info: about a month ago she started asking for tums about once a week close to bedtime for acid reflux)   So the first night I noticed that it really bothered my stomach in the sense that it felt like I had a lot of stomach acid as a result.  I had no heartburn etc. but a definite feeling of "burning" in my stomach.  We both took it right before bed.  The next day she reported the same feeling - that it "upset" her stomach.   I cut the dose in half and also gave it to her earlier in the evening.  But tonight she reported "heartburn" after drinking it.   Is this an indicator of low stomach acid?  I realize that she should NOT be taking a Tums if that is the case but I can't tease out from what I am reading if this heartburn is an indicator of LOW stomach acid or LOTS of stomach acid.  Any thoughts?
    • Thanks Ennis_TX! That's what I was hoping to hear I've never been a big protein powder user even pre-diagnosis despite being a fairly high level endurance athlete, so my awareness of what's out there is low. I've always preferred "real food," however, I was trying to find a protein powder because I have some extended job-related travel coming up, and wanted a shelf-stable, safe protein source. I like that this one only has no flavouring agents/nutritional additives and sunflower seeds are an inherently nutritious real food.  The price for this powder is actually pretty good in my area as the company is based in Vancouver/Bellingham, which is where I live. I don't much care if the taste or texture is horrible as long as it doesn't make me sick!  Just wanted to make sure that this was the case. Thanks for the hemp protein suggestion as well.
    • You're right, RMJ!  Food additives are definitely my reason for eating whole foods! Lol I'm allergic to Sulfites used as preservatives or antimicrobial agents in foods.  Long ago, Sulfites used to be added to meats to keep them pink and fresh looking, but that practice was banned.  However, those little moisture absorbing pads under some cuts of meat are allowed to contain Sulfites.  I found that I reacted to meats packaged that way.   Ennis, I wonder if that could be a possible reason for your reaction to meat.  Have you had Lyme disease?  Some people who've been bitten by infected ticks develop an allergic reaction to meat.   Curious Kitty
    • I had severe HG with my first two pregnancies (in the hospital every few days with an IV for drugs and fluids).  I was diagnosed Celiac after my second child was born.  I avoided all gluten and got pregnant a third time after a year and was hospitalized only twice!  I didn't gain any weight with the first two pregnancies but gained 30 lbs with the third.  What a difference!  Definite link in my experiences between gut health and pregnancy health.
