Chili and Lime Tortilla Chip Tapas

I've been making the chile and lime chip in this recipe for years. They are really easy to make and SO much better than anything you can buy in a store. The "tapas" part was just made on the fly with the ingredients I had on hand and it ended up being pretty darn tasty.

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Yield: 6 servings

Chip Ingredients:
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt (kosher salt is my fave)

Tapas Toppings:
1/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese
1 avocado, sliced
3 tablespoons cilantro
lime wedges for garnish
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each tortilla into 8 chip sized wedges and place on a nonstick cookie sheet in a single layer. Mix lime juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Using a cooking brush, brush the solution over the chips so that they are slightly moist. Combine other spices in separate small bowl and sprinkle on top of chips. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure chips don't burn. When chips are crisp, remove from oven and arrange on a plate. Sprinkle with tapas toppings and enjoy!
