Tortilla Crisps with Honey Dip
Crisp-fried flour tortillas are served with a honey-butter dipping sauce that's been kissed with hint of cinnamon and orange. Appetizer, snack or dessert? It's your choice.
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small cinnamon stick
1 piece (1 1/2 x 1/2-inch) orange peel
6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
- Combine honey, butter, cinnamon stick and orange peel. Cook over low heat at least 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and peel before serving.
- Cut each tortilla into six wedges. Deep-fry tortillas, smooth-side up, at 375°F (190°C) about 30 seconds. Turn and deep-fry 30 seconds longer or until golden brown. Tortillas should puff as soon as they are put in hot oil. Remove from oil to paper towel-lined tray.
- Serve crisp tortillas with honey dip or spoon dip over chips.
Makes 8 servings.
Oven Method: Brush both sides of whole tortillas with vegetable oil. Cut into wedges before baking, if desired. Place on baking sheet and bake at 325°F (160°C) about 12 minutes or until crisp and browned but not hard.
