Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Crisps

When I was younger, I had a mild love affair with Taco Bell, as most teenagers did, I’m sure. Who remembers cinnamon twists? Delicious, yes. Healthy, absolutely not.

Back then I didn’t have the knowledge that I do now about clean eating. Nowadays, fresh, quality ingredients take precedence in my kitchen, and even more so when I go out to eat. No more indulging in taste-good-but-are-so-bad-for-you-foods, especially when you can get the same delicious flavour by preparing them yourself.

My fridge and pantry are always filled with staple ingredients for quick, last-minute meals, such as tuna, avocado, pasta, legumes-and tortilla. They come in handy for quick lunches, whether they’re used for wraps, pinwheels, quesadillas, burritos, and more.

To date, I have a new-found love affair-with these cinnamon sugar tortilla crisps. In fact, I think that every time I buy tortillas from now on they will be reserved for this crispy snack.

This recipe was intended for the kids, a playful, not-so refined recipe that I’m sure they would enjoy. They devoured them. The few leftovers I had were served to my husband and my in-laws. The feedback was unanimous; these cinnamon sugar crisps are delicious!

Of course, we had to up the ante, and bring in the gelato. When in Rome…

Trust me when I tell you that these are delicious all on their own, but I’m sure you don’t need convincing that with gelato, they are absolutely heavenly!

I have another confession. I love cinnamon. However, if you find cinnamon a little overpowering for your taste buds, my suggestion is to reduce the quantity suggested in this recipe by half.

If you try this recipe (and love it!) be sure to snap a pic and tag me on Instagram with #bitesforfoodies so I can see your creation!
