At the outset, it is worth noting that you can use both the ready-made version of tortillas with a good composition or prepare them yourself at home. However, certainly the former option will be faster.
1.To begin with, prepare a mixture of spices and mix them thoroughly with olive oil.
2.Using a brush or your hands, grease the tortillas on both sides with the previously prepared mixture. It is important that it is well distributed over the entire surface of the pancake.
3.Greased tortilla must not be too greasy, so that it can be quickly and easily cut into smaller pieces, preferably in triangles. It should come out about 12 of them.It is advisable that they are not too small, remember that they will shrink slightly during baking. For that, too long ones may not be very handy when eating.
4.Spread baking paper on a baking tray and arrange the triangles far apart from each other, so that they do not stick together during baking.
5. set the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and bake for about 6 to 10 minutes. It’s a good idea to flip them over halfway through baking. Take the nachos out of the oven only when they turn brown. It all depends on what kind of oven you have.
6.After cooling, it’s a good idea to store them in a tightly sealed box, and they will stay crispy and delicious longer. Don’t forget to serve sauces, which you can also make yourself.
