"Tita knew through her own flesh how fire transforms the elements, how a lump of corn flour is changed into a tortilla, how a soul that hasn't been warmed by the fire of love is lifeless, like a useless ball of corn flour." -Laura Esquivel, Like Water for Chocolate

The refrigerator light goes on...

These tortilla chips are fantastic. Much crispier than the ones you buy in a bag, and you can flavor them with anything you wish: chili powder, cumin, Creole seasoning, salt, pepper, curry powder, garam masala - the list is endless. They are a snap to make and a lot cheaper than store bought chips.
