Corn Chips:
12 purchased GF corn tortillas

Cut tortillas into quarters.  Place on a baking sheet.  Place another baking sheet on top to prevent curling. Bake purchased corn tortillas at 350 for 15 minutes.  When baked, remove from the oven and spray with olive oil spray.

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon paprika

Put processed spices into a plastic bag.  Add oiled chips and shake until coated.

1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon olive oil

Chopped raw jalapeno (optional)

De-seed soaked chili and tear it up into a food processor.  Add remaining ingredients.  Add 1/2 cup of the soaking liquid.  Process until smooth.  Taste, and adjust seasonings. If necessary, add more soaking liquid to adjust consistency.   Let it sit for flavors to meld.
