      I’m new to this and I haven’t made a lot of Julie’s recipes yet but I just made the corn tortillas chips. Oh my goodness. I burned the first batch, so I tried again. Thank goodness! I couldn’t stop eating them…without anything on it (except salt) or any dips! Just the plain tortilla chips right out of the oven. Could not believe how good they were. The kicker is that I normally don’t like corn tortillas. No joke. I feel a bit silly going on about the tortilla chips but I’m just so shocked! They taste similar to Fritos without all the grease. Can’t wait to try them with one of the salsas or dips!

      Ok so… Lily vs El Milagro…? Here in Chicago I’m still with El Milagro but after seeing your rave about Lily… ??? Glad you found a PD approved brand in San Diego.

      This is another great item that we always keep on hand! It’s great hot or cold with salsa or nacho fixin’s! When you want a salty, crunchy snack you can’t beat it – it’s even good enough to be a meal!

      I made these today with my first shipment of the Lily tortillas and must say these are TERRIFIC! They really do come apart as easily as the show in the video. I was worried they’d frozen into a giant hunk of corn stuff, but they popped apart easily while they were frozen.

      They toasted up so light and crispy too! I salted them before they went in the oven and really am excited about having nachos tonight!

        Excellent! I’m thrilled to hear you are enjoying them! Thanks for the review!

      Since the Lily brand is not available for shipment year round, could you put the el Milagros tortilla recipe up as well?

      My worst nightmare is running out of these chips. I make loaded nachos no less than 5 times a week… Often more!

      Awesome awesome awesome!!! I use the El Milagro tortillas that I have loved for like 25 years now. My daughter’s Grandmother was Hispanic and turned me on to them way back then. I have tried them frozen and fresh. I actually like them better fresh. And hubby likes them too. The ones on my middle rack in the oven were perfect and the ones on my lower rack were a little darker brown (not too bad). I thought those had a slight taste like burned popcorn but my husband said he liked the flavor. These are so great!!!

      Could this be any easier or more delicious? I spritz the tortilla (I leave them whole) and grind some sea salt on them before baking. Gotta watch that they don’t burn, then learn the time that it takes to cook them perfectly in your oven and go for it. It is a staple in my house. I love to dip it in Not-Yo Cheeze Sauce or French Onion Dip. I also like making tzatziki sauce and using that as a dip.

      Yea! My local Mexican grocery store has El Milagro tortillas, Nachos for lunch today!

      I have to agree with Julie. “I love tortillas!” Making these make me feel smart and efficient. Julie’s make easy tips are better than any I have ever seen the Russian Hacker give. I love too that when you pull them from the oven they chatter as they cool. I think they are singing the “We are delicious and special song.”

      The milagros ones puff up and separate while cooking? Looking crazy, and nothing like the white ones in the video. Also, to get them not chewy, they end up looking burnt. Ugh.

        Maybe your oven cooks hotter than others. I’d lower the heat a little and cook for the same amount of time. Test one before taking them out of the oven.

      It’s so wonderful o be able to eat tortilla chips after so many years of depriving myself of carbs! Thanks for providing a way, Julie. I’m loving them!

      I should have these and french onion dip on hand more often when I want a salty crispy treat.

      How do I order Lily corn tortillas?

      • posted by Julie Marie on July 24, 2017

        We no longer ship them. To purchase them you must visit Tortillaria Lily in San Diego California. If you be prepared to pay with cash because that’s the only form of currency they accept.
