This past weekend was a busy one around the house. Running errands, and as I cooked up a bunch of meals, my wife and kids got busy cleaning the house. This seems to be the typical weekend schedule for us, but this one seemed a bit busier. Thankfully my kids did not put up too much of a fuss when they were instructed by my wife to pick up everything under their beds, dust, and vacuum. I hid away in the kitchen, and came up with several different recipes, and one of them was my take on homemade spicy Doritos.
I often joke that when you open our pantry, I often feel like we are aisle 9 at the supermarket. You open it and you get your potato chips, and a variety, pretzels, Doritos, etc. It’s a joke, but my kids pack their lunches every day and they must have some chips. With that said, I noticed that I had a big bag of corn tortillas that I needed to use up, and heck, believe it or not but we were out of Doritos. This is when it came to me…. Make some homemade spicy ranch Doritos!
If you have corn tortillas laying around, and you or your kids love Doritos, this is a must make.
Let’s get started.
- 10 whole corn tortillas, cut into segments
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1/2 package of Spicy ranch seasoning
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
- Pam cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 360 degrees.
Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
To a large, gallon sized sealable bag, add the cut corn tortillas, and drizzle in the oil. Seal, and gently toss the corn tortillas around so they get some of that oil onto them.
I use my latex cooking gloves on the next step to prevent getting a bit oily, but remove all of the tortillas, and line them onto the baking sheets.
Place the sheets into the preheated oven, and cook for about 15 minutes, making sure you pay attention to them as all ovens are different. They can go from soft to burnt in a matter of seconds.
When they get nice and golden, and crisp, remove them from the oven and spray them with the Pam cooking spray to get a light coating on them. This also helps with the seasoning to adhere to them.
Pour the cooked and sprayed tortillas into a brown paper bag. Pour the spicy ranch seasoning and the garlic salt into the bag, seal, and give them a good shake in the bag to get all of the seasoning mixed through.
Pour onto a serving dish, and dig in.
My wife, who normally does not eat Doritos loved these, as did my kids. Simple, easy, and a great way to add Doritos to the cupboard when you are out! Hope you enjoy!
