Recipe of the week: Tortilla chips

All you need is some tortillas and a little bit of oil to make your own tortilla chips at home!

I'll admit, I first made these when I just didn't want to run to the store... we were out of tortilla chips and we needed some to go with our taco salad dinner.

Set out your tortilla of choice- corn or flour. (I think I like flour better at this point, but I may change my mind.)

Spoon or brush a little bit of vegetable or canola oil onto both sides of the tortillas.

Next, cut them into triangles. That's easy- just cut them like you would a pizza.

Next, take all your triangles and lay them onto the baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes on each side. Watch them carefully, so they do not get overdone.
Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Then cool and store in an airtight container. Whalaa!! Fresh tortilla chips that are delicious and crisp. Serve with your favorite salsa, beans, taco salad or guacamole. I hope you enjoy this fun recipe!

Text coupons from Target

I'm going to feel so hip the first time I use this handy coupon! TEXT coupons from Target! Sign up for Target’s Mobile Coupons here. You will receive exclusive Target store coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons. The cashier will scan the barcode on your phone to use the coupon.

The website states that you will get your monthly offers via text message with a link to a barcode that can be scanned at checkout. The same barcode can be used for multiple one-time-only coupon deals throughout the month. Offers always arrive on a Sunday.

I'm not sure if these coupons will be the same as the coupons in the generator or entirely different coupons. Either way, this is a new and exciting way to save at Target!

You can also sign up to have the weekly ad sent to your phone as well as Target’s daily online deals at the
same link.
