Baked Tortilla Chips
The first time I made these, they came out a bit too brown. But my second time around, they were perfect! I did bake them @ 350 for 7MINS, then flip them so they can bake evenly, and baked them for 6MINS. Maybe it's my oven, but 8MINS makes them too brown & too crispy. I used 15 yellow corn tortillas for 2 people. As another reviewer, I brushed olive oil or veggie oil on each whole tortilla & sprinkled the spices over each....THEN I cut them into triangles. It was much easier this way. Good recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops
I followed the recipe as written, but I wasn't impressed by the results. The pork chops tasted OK. I've tasted better from simpler pork chop recipes. They smelled delicious as I fried them. They were crispy on the outside, but they were a tad dry on the inside. I wasn't impressed by the results because there's no flavor(s) that comes out and tells your taste buds, "Mmmm, this is really good." Like I said, I've done much simpler pork chops recipes that had more flavor and they used less ingredients than this recipe. Maybe it depends on the brand of breadcrumbs I used? I used Progresso Italian style breadcrumbs. Perhaps those breadcrumbs were the problem, but either way, this recipe wasn't anything special. I think the baking made them dry 'cause they smelled and looked delicious after I fried them, but looked crispy and kind of dry after I baked them. I wouldn't do them again. Sorry.
