1 cup corn meal
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Combine corn meal, water, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir mixture until dough forms a ball and stays together. Add a little water if necessary, a tablespoon or two at a time. Let dough rest for at least 20 minutes (the longer, the better).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using your hands, press dough out onto an ungreased baking sheet, making it as thin as possible. Use a knife to score chips into desired shape. Bake 20 minutes, or until slightly browned and crispy.
Yield: 4-6 servings (serving size = about 8-12 chips)
- Break into smaller pieces, and put in a bowl of soup.
