The original Takis come in a variety of flavors, but none quite as beloved as the Purple Punch flavor. But what makes this particular flavor so special? Well, with a few easy steps, you can make your very own Purple Punch Takis at home!
The first step to making Purple Punch Takis is to gather all the necessary ingredients. You will need:
• 4 cups of ground corn
• 2 cups of flour
• 1 tablespoon of baking powder
• 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon of onion powder
• 1 teaspoon of chili powder
• 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
• 2 tablespoons of sugar
• 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
• 2 tablespoons of purple food coloring
Mixing the Ingredients
Next, you’ll want to mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Start by combining the ground corn, flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and cumin. Stir the mixture until it’s well combined.
Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add the sugar, vegetable oil, and food coloring and stir until everything is fully incorporated. The resulting dough should be thick and a beautiful shade of purple.
Shaping the Takis
Now it’s time to shape the Takis! Take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a thin log, about the size of a pencil. Cut the dough into 1-inch pieces and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Repeat this process until all the dough has been used. You should have about 2 dozen Purple Takis.
Baking the Takis
Now it’s time to bake the Purple Punch Takis! Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the Takis for 20-25 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy.
Cooling the Takis
Once the Purple Punch Takis are finished baking, let them cool on a wire rack before eating.
Serving the Takis
Your homemade Purple Punch Takis are now ready to serve! Enjoy them plain or with your favorite dip.
Storing the Takis
If you don’t eat all the Purple Punch Takis in one sitting, you can store them in an airtight container and enjoy them for up to a week.
Making the perfect Purple Punch Takis is easier than you think and the results are sure to be a hit! With a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time, you can whip up a batch of these delicious snacks that are perfect for game day, a snack after school, or just as a special treat.
