Spicy Tortilla Strips

by Cate on December 27, 2004

1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus additional for brushing
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 (6-inch) corn tortillas

Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat oven to 375°F.  Lightly brush 2 large baking pans with oil. Whisk 1/4 cup oil with spices and salt and brush 1 side of each tortilla with it. Make 3 (4-tortilla) stacks and cut stacks into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Arrange strips in 1 layer in baking pans. Bake, switching position of pans halfway through baking, until golden and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and cool completely in pans. Makes about 6 cups.
