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 a healthy way. They are typically fried in vegetable oil. Not only does that leave a greasy film on your teeth when you are done, it also makes you feel kind of crappy.

And 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. And all of that is in a measly 10 chips. (wah!). Seriously, who can eat just 10 little chips and call it a day?

Homemade Is Always Best

An easy option to combat the average tortilla chip dilemma is to make your own. Besides, 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 were wrong (pure devastation).
