Homemade Tortilla Chips from She Let Them Eat Cake

I am a huge fan of guacamole.  I would happily eat it every day (with a spoon or a cracker, but especially on a corn chip from our local Mexican restaurant).

Sadly though, corn and I don’t get along very well.  Which I am okay with most of the time (except when we go to that local Mexican restaurant, then I give in).

At home, it’s much easier to avoid corn.  We don’t eat many packaged foods, so we don’t get it there.  If I do buy corn, I make sure it’s organic and preferably local so I can chat with the farmer.   That way I know it’s free of pesticides and it’s hopefully not genetically modified.

But every now and then, a girl wants some crunchy chips to go with her guacamole!  That’s where these Homemade Gluten-Free Tortilla Chips come in to play.  They’re corn-free too!  And my kids love them as much as we do!  I haven’t put them in their lunchboxes yet, Callum is at that stage where he wants his lunch to look like everyone else’s lunch.

That will pass, right?

I am reading an amazing book right now – it’s called Allergies: Disease in Disguise : How to Heal Your Allergic Condition Permanently and Naturally by Carolee Bateson-Koch DC ND.  If you’re living with allergies, or you know someone who is, you MUST grab a copy of this book!
