ffwD: Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chip Tortilla

I previously made and posted about Dorie’s potato chip tortilla. Last time, I followed the recipe and used plain potato chips. However, I did make a notation in my cookbook that it might be fun to try different flavored chips next time. So, for this week’s assignment, I made my tortilla with Lays sour cream & onion chips. To be honest, I couldn’t tell too much of a flavor difference.

Since I made this as a quick lunch for myself, I only made half the recipe in a 4-inch pot, which is the smallest stove top pan/pot I could find. For a bit of flourish, I served my tortilla with a dollop of sour cream and a dill garnish. And, just so I could have a bit of “healthy” with this potato chip lunch, I paired the yummy tortilla with a mixed greens and herb salad with balsamic vinaigrette and chunks of blue cheese. Overall, the meal was filling, tasty and extremely simple to prepare!

To see how other bloggers fared with their potato chip tortillas, check out French Fridays with Dorie where we make recipes from Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    Love the deep golden colours of your tortilla! Looks great!
    Good to know that other chip flavours can be used successfully!

    I noticed that a few people played around with different types of chips – fun idea.
    The green and the yellow together are very cheery – just what is needed to brighten up a cold winter day.

    Looks and sounds delicious. I am sure Lays staff are happy with your twist, maybe a few sample bigs will arrive at your doorstep for Christmas:)

    What a cute little individual portion. I also like the idea to play around with different chips, I’m going to make a note in my book in case I make this one again in the future.

    Yours looks like a cute potato chip pancake! I bet it was delicious with those crispy brown edges. (My favorite part!) Hope you have a good weekend.

    I’m curious — wouldn’t a potato chip tortilla be fantastically salty? It looks good, but…

    Ooooo….I like the sour cream and dill idea!

    What a creative use of potato chips! I’m sure it was good with the dill and sour cream.

    coolest and best idea ever! When I was growing up sour cream and onion chips were my old time favorite. Seriously my favorite so this recipe is bringing back great memories and making me longing for some chips- i will make your recipe instead though:)

    I love the pretty brown edges. I’m surprised that the sour cream and onion flavor didn’t come through much. Weird!

    Dec 16, 2011 @ 09:11:18

    Great idea with the dill — wish I had thought of that myself!

    Nice use of flavored chips! I used sweet potato chips in mine. You salad looks wonderful – I was so hungry that I gobbled mine down without even making a side dish.

    Dec 16, 2011 @ 10:31:53

    Oooh, this looks great. Love the combinations of flavors and the color too!

    Great photos! I love that you were able tto do this as a individual dish. Surprised that the sour cream and onion didn’t come through as much. I was having an issue with my dish just not have the same punch of flavor that I expected from the potato chips. Happy Holiday!

    I love making fritattas for the same reason, haven’t tried my hand at a tortilla. This looks great.

    Dec 16, 2011 @ 13:19:34

    Aww, I’m kind of disappointed to hear that the sour cream & onion chips didn’t add more flavor. That was going to be the next kind I tried! Yours certainly looks delicious though!

    OMG (!) I better stay FAR away from this one… I don’t think I would ever be able to stop eating something quite so flavourful and ooey gooey delicious!

    It’s been a while since I last visited your blog yummychunklet. I have to say you made lots of improvement in your photography! The tortilla looks very enticing and pairing it with a salad definitely makes for a good lunch.

    I remember when you made this before. It’s been on my mind to try it since then, so I was happy this came up as an assignment for FFwD. I love potatoe pancakes with dill and sour cream, so I’ll bet your tortilla was fantastic with those accompaniments. I served mine with salad on the side too. Nice work.

    I like that idea, substituting different flavored chips. I love to add hot sauce to our
    frittata or eggs of any kind, gives it that little extra lift. Tricia and I both enjoyed
    the recipe this week. In case I don’t have a chance for comments next week,
    have a merry Christmas. I have a feeling I will be in the kitchen for the
    next few days, and not making Dorie recipes.

    Looks good. And love the addition of the healthy part. Around Chrismas I always have less veggies (not smart, I know).

    I suppose I MIGHT have made this if it called for Cheetos. Did Dorie suggest it would be a Bonne Idea to drink chocolate milk with it too? 🙂

    I used flavoured chips too – it was very nice. I like your idea of combining the tortilla with salad for a meal.

    hmmm thats an interesting note! I bet you could make this with almost any flavor chip then and hardly taste it then!

    Using potato chips in a tortilla sounds like heaps of fun! Shame that you couldn’t taste much of the flavour of the chip… still looks great though!

    It is amazing the things you learn on a blog. Who would have thought of chips in a tortilla. Makes sense though because a tortilla is made with sliced potato.

    Hi this is my first time on this wonderful blog and i am overwhelmed seeing all these yummy things all over the place.
    I would never have thought of making a tortilla with potato chips from a packet…I make an omelet with shallow fried slivers of potato and lots of chopped cilantro whipped into the eggs and call it a quick Spanish omelet…i can imagine how rich and flavorful this tortilla would be. Checked out your mushrooms version too and that was yumm…
    Great pictures !!!
    Merry Christmas !!!
