This is a great way to crank up the flavor profile of your garden-variety tortilla chips.  Super quick.  Super easy.  Only three items.  

Tortilla chips (we like Santita's Yellow Corn)
Chili powder
Trechas Salimon

The Method
Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit
Place desired amount of chips on sheet pan
Sprinkle chips with chili powder and Salimon
Place in oven for 8-10 minutes

Food for Thought
Toasting the chips greatly enhances the nutty corny yumminess and improves the crunch factor logarithmically.  Salimon is a salt that has a citrusy zing.  This is an easy way to dress up your next Southwestern or Mexican menu or even just a simple snack of chips and salsa.  Buen provecho.


  1. Does one get salimon in the spice aisle? BTW, Mitch made your onion rings and gave us some. YUM!

  2. I think that you can find Salimon in the ethnic foods section if not on the spice aisle. The same great friend who sends us all of the oranges and avocados sent us the Salimon so I haven't ever had to look in the store for it. I'm pretty sure that you could find it at Winco if not elsewhere.

  3. WalMart (in the Los Angeles area anyhow) carries it in the produce section.
