Need Ideas From The Bakers/cooks In Here...

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... :)

    • I had not heard that. What I had heard is that folic acid supplementation can mask B12 deficiency. Feenejya suggested getting tested for H Pylori, not a bad idea. What you're going through sounds awful, I'm so sorry you're going through this. Please stay in touch, and do take care because chronic diarrhea can present some complications of its own, as you know. Try to replenish fluids and electrolytes.

    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further.
