Favorite Ingredients Friday (Homemade Corn Chips)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Check out my upcoming themed schedule below:

Upcoming 2009 "Themed" Schedule
April 10- Easter Edition
April 24- Dessert Edition
May 1- Spreads & Dips
May 15- Greatest Hits (your past favorite)
May 29- Weight Watcher's Edition

So, a couple of weeks ago I was searching online for recipes that called for cornmeal because I have this bag of cornmeal that needs to be used up and you can really only eat so much corn bread before you gain about 100 lbs. I'm not sure if this recipe is any better for avoiding weight gain (at least these are baked, not fried), but it was fun to try out and the kids enjoyed the results! Some turned out a bit odd shaped but they were good with some tangy salsa! You can turn them into nachos too.

I found the recipe off of Luscious Recipes.

Homemade Corn Chips


Ingredients
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon margarine
3/4 cup boiling water
1 cup boiling water

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425*F.

2. Combine cornmeal and salt in a mixing bowl.

3. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and stir.

4. Add butter and stir until melted.

5. Add remaining 3/4 cup boiling water, while stirring constantly.

6. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a well-greased baking sheet and bake for 14 to 15 minutes.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Oh wow! These sound fabulous and I still have a jar of homemade salsa left!

We are still snowed in so now I have something else to make! Yeah!
