Vegan Dorritos

I found a super easy recipe for Vegan Doritos!
(I used the Nacho "Cheese" seasoning)

Homemade Vegan Doritos (3 Ways)
·         Author: Fork & Beans
·         Prep Time: 10 mins
·         Cook Time: 15 mins
·         Total Time: 25 mins
·         Yield: 48 chips
·    6 corn tortillas (make sure that these are on the thinner side–if not they will be crispy along the edges but a little chewier in the middle)
·         1 Tbsp. olive oil
·         Seasoning of choice (see below)
1.     Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
2.     Place your tortillas on top of each other. Cut into 8 pie slices.
3.     In a medium-sized bowl place the “chips” inside and drizzle the olive oil over them until each side and piece is nicely covered.
4.     Coat each chip with seasoning of choice by sprinkling the seasoning with a spoon over it, making sure that both sides are perfectly coated.
5.     Place on the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating your pan at the 7 minute mark. You want the edges to be lightly browned but keep your eye on burning during the last 2 minutes.
6.     Allow to cool before thoroughly enjoying.

Use the following ingredients per Homemade Vegan Doritos seasoning:
Nacho “Cheese” Seasoning:
·      1/4 c. nutritional yeast

3's Class

First, I asked the class if they have ever tried Doritos and then I told them I made some Doritos that are good for you.
Then I showed the class what I did in the kitchen to make the "Doritos"

  First, I cut the tortillas into little triangles and covered them with a little olive oil.

  Next, I showed the bag of nutritional yeast. I told them it tastes like cheese.

  Then I showed  the containers of onion powder, paprika, and ground cumin. (I forgot to get chili powder, so I improvised)
Time to taste!
