No, I did not grind the corn myself or invest in a tortilla press. However, with kinda-sorta homemade chips, the taste : effort ratio definitely starts to approach infinity. Even better, get your kids to make them.
Buy fresh corn tortillas. Make sure you have an oven.
Cut them up like a pie. We went for traditional triangles, but it would be fun to use cookie cutters. For example, (Baltimore) raven or (Anaheim) duck-shaped chips to crunch away on during sporting events.
Bake at 350 'til crispy, about 30 minutes.
Will be doing this again for the Superbowl, hockey games, and just to have around for afternoon snacks.
