Cut Out Pumpkin Shapes

Use the cookie cutters to cut out pumpkin shapes from the tortillas.

Add Food Coloring to Oil

Pour the oil into a small bowl. Then add 2 drops of red food coloring and 5 drops of yellow. Wait a few minutes and then stir to blend coloring with oil.

Brush Oil onto Tortilla

Dip the brush in the oil and then "paint" both sides of each cut-out until it's well coated.

Bake Tortillas

Place the chips on an ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt. (For spicy chips, sprinkle on some chili powder.) Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until crispy. (Ask an adult to help.)
