PostHeaderIcon Baked Tortilla Chips

This is just a fun little way to make tortilla chips at home. These tortilla chips are super healthy, especially compared to store-bought tortilla chips. They are also very quick to make. Just cut the tortillas in triangles with a pizza cutter, place on a cookie sheet (do not overlap them), lightly cover with cooking spray, sprinkle with salt, and broil each side until crisp and lightly brown. I used olive oil cooking spray and sea salt and the results were delicious, I’m sure any type of cooking spray would work though. I served these tortilla chips with my slow cooker chicken tortilla soup and they complimented each other perfectly. Of course, I’ll still buy tortilla chips at the store, but this is just a fun way to make them if you’re in a bind or looking for a healthy alternative.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Ingredients:

1 small package of white corn tortillas, taco size, cut into triangles
Cooking spray (I used olive oil spray)
Salt-to taste

Directions:

Preheat the broiler to high. Cut the corn tortillas into triangles using a pizza cutter and place on a large baking sheet. Don’t overlap the chips. If you want to make a large batch, fill a second pan and only bake one at a time.

Spray the triangles lightly with cooking spray. Turn over triangles and spray again. Sprinkle with salt, to taste.

Bake in the oven for about 3-4 minutes. Turn chips over and bake for another 3-4 minutes, or until chips are golden brown and crisp. Make sure you don’t go too far while the chips are in the oven. They will bake quickly!

Cool and store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
