Chile-Lime Tortilla Triangles

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican achiote (annatto) paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 (10- to 12-inch) flour tortillas

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F.
Stir together paprika, achiote, cayenne, salt, lime juice, and oil.

Put 1 tortilla on each of 2 baking sheets and brush with oil mixture. Cut each tortilla into long thin triangles with a sharp knife.

Bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until crisp and lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes total. Transfer triangles to racks to cool. Repeat with remaining 2 tortillas.
