Bonus:

Tortilla chips

For this recipe, we toasted our own tortilla chips for that extra healthy touch. Sometimes store bought chips are overly processed or have a very high content of sodium.

A quick way to make your own chips is to take multi-grain tortillas, cut them into triangle chips and pop them into a preheated oven at 350°F. They should be nice and toasty between 8-12 minutes. Remove from oven once the chips look toasted (golden around the edges). Sprinkle some paprika and lemon juice on the chips for taste and they’re good to go!

Roasted garlic

Roasting garlic is easy and delicious. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Take one whole head of garlic and chop the top off exposing the cloves. Place the garlic in aluminum foil and drizzle 2 tablespoons in olive oil or until the garlic is saturated in the oil. Wrap and close the foil around the garlic and place into oven. Let ‘roast’ in the oven for 30-40 min. When removing, garlic should be soft and brown in colour.
