When we stumbled upon this idea...a cactus chip sitting in a dip, we thought it was the cutest idea.  Then we figured out how easy it was to make and we were sold!

Whenever we can incorporate easy touches that are sure to be talked about, we want to include them in our party details. 

Here are the steps to How to Make Cactus Chips:

Serves: 20-24 cactus chips

INGREDIENTS

  • Bag of Large sized Green Tortillas (these are tortillas made with spinach to give them the green color; they usually come in a bag of 8)
  • Salt (optional)

SUPPLIES

DIRECTIONS 

STEP 1

Place your first tortilla on a cutting board.  With your cookie cutter, plan out where you will place your cutter for each chip to maximize how many chips you can get from each tortilla.  You should be able to get 4-6 chips per tortilla depending on the size of tortillas and the size of your cutter.

STEP 2

When ready, place your cutter on the tortilla to cut out your first chip.  Gently push down on all the sides of the cutter to press it into the tortilla.

STEP 3

Once you've pressed down all sides, it's time to remove the chip from the rest of the tortilla.  Gently push out the cactus chip from the rest of the tortilla.

PRO TIP: 

You may need to re-cut areas of the chip as you are trying to remove it.  You can either re-press the cookie cutter into the shape or use a small pairing knife to cut any pieces that didn't cut with the cookie cutter.

STEP 4

After you've removed your cactus chip from the tortilla, place it onto your baking sheet.  Then repeat Steps 2-4 until your baking sheet is full of cactus chips about 1" apart from each other.

Optional: You can sprinkle a little bit of salt on your chips.

STEP 5

Bake for 2-3 minutes at 350 degrees and then remove from the oven.

PRO TIP: 

Keep a close eye on your chips as some ovens are hotter than others and the chips can brown quickly when overcooked.
