Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips Recipe

These wonderful homemade baked tortilla chips make sturdy dippers and are great for scooping up salsa or your favorite dip.  Tortilla chips can be made with either corn or flour tortillas.  I personally prefer the flavor of the corn tortillas, but you can go with your preference.  A simple snack to fix with very little effort.  By baking the tortillas chips, you can eat healthy and still enjoy your snacks with no worries.  These are a healthy alternative to fried chips to enjoy with your favorite Southwest recipe.

Ingredients
  • Flour tortillas, and/or wheat tortillas*
  • Nonstick cooking spray (I like to use the olive oil spray)
  • Seasoning of your choice (optional)**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Lay the tortillas out on a cutting board, spray with the nonstick olive oil spray on both sides.  If using a seasoning, sprinkle on both sides now.

  3. Stack the tortillas in piles of eight (8) tortillas.  Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut through the pile of tortillas, cutting into 4 equal triangles.

  4. Arrange tortilla triangles in a single layer on baking sheets.  Bake for approximately 6 to 7 minutes until crisp and the edges start to curl and turn lightly brown.  Watch the chips carefully after 5 minutes, as they can burn easily.
     

  5. Once the chips are done, remove from the oven to cool.  Chips will continue to crisp as they cool.

Recipe Notes

*  I like to use a mixture of different types of tortillas

**  Salt, seasoning salt, garlic salt, paprika, chili powder, or cayenne pepper.  I usually make my chips without any seasonings.
