Tortilla Chips + Black Bean Dip
The old way: Paper-thin, salty store-bought chips that are alarmingly easy-to-down by the handful—and a bit too flimsy to scoop up beans pureed with cilantro and cumin.

The new twist: Tortilla chips baked in your oven (it only takes 10 minutes) have a much more satisfying taste and texture than the bagged kind. And this spin on smooth bean dip gets an unexpected smoky kick from chipotle chilies.
