Planning a Halloween party but don’t want to just serve sweets and junk food? These spooky, savoury nibbles are just what you need. This easy Halloween recipe serves around five people, so be sure to double it if you have more guests.
This dish is a great way to use up tortilla wraps that have gone a little dry or past their best before date. Using the wraps also means that you can cut out your own Halloween-themed shapes to make the gravestones. Why not get the kids involved to help you make them?
Are tortilla chips healthy?
Tortilla chips are typically made from corn and then baked or fried. If you buy them from a supermarket, they can be quite high in salt and fat. However, this recipe uses tortilla wraps which are cut into shapes and then baked, making them lower in fat.
If any of your guests are gluten-free, you can buy gluten-free wraps from the ‘free-from’ aisles of supermarkets. Be sure to also use gluten-free bread in the soil.
