Homemade Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips

I love chips and salsa.

Who doesn’t it?

The challenge is they are extremely high in fat and not in the healthy kind. They are typically fried in vegetable oil that leaves that greasy film on your teeth when you are done.

Who wants that?

The average one ounce serving of tortilla chips contains 8 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 20 grams of carbohydrates. All that in a measly 10 chips. (wah wah!)

Homemade Is Always Best

An easy option to combat the average tortilla chip dilemma is to make your own.  Making your own chips from your favorite corn tortillas allows you more food and greater control of what you put into that body of yours.  This notion was recently confirmed for me when a friend brought to my attention that the nutritional facts on my favorite bag of tortilla chips was wrong (pure devastation).

These will knock your socks off because they taste so good and are sooo EASY! My kids prefer that I make them over any other option. You can eat them with salsa or as a side to a favorite soup or as a homemade nacho.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place tortillas on top of one another making one big stack.
  3. Cut tortillas in half, in half again and one more time making eighths.
  4. Spread tortillas on a baking sheet, staggered.
  5. Very lightly spray tortillas with a bit of olive oil. You want just enough to allow salt to stick.
  6. Lightly salt chips to taste.
  7. Place chips in the oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and crisp. (They brown fast so keep a good eye on them as they cook as oven times may vary.)
