Our town's celebration isn't for a few more weeks.. .then end of July... but the next town over is having their big time.
It's a tradition that one branch of our family has a gather for lunch after the parade in one of the town parks... it's a pot luck type deal...
Been so busy with our house building activities that I didn't really have time to pre-think my take along dish. So I went into the pantry...
OK... black beans... corn... I have fresh cilantro growing in the garden and some onions... one of my favorite spices is cumin... and let's see... got some mild picante sauce... oh and garlic powder (next year I want garden fresh garlic... love it!!)
Great... a yummy bean salsa!
Chips... none in the pantry (that's because they get sniffed out by the kiddos and last about 2 seconds after they arrive from the store... LOL!)
Yes, have some flour tortillas!!! A local mexican restaurant that we enjoy going to makes their own chips out of tortillas... Hmm... I guess that I can do that too!!!
Found this video on google: How to make tortilla chips!
Almost done baking chips!!! And off we go!
