Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips Recipe
I posted our edamame guacamole recipe this week and mentioned that we made homemade baked tortilla chips to go with our guacamole. Well, I received several emails and comments from readers wanting to know how we made our chips. So today is your lucky day, I am sharing our simple recipe for baked tortilla chips.
We purchase corn tortillas from a local Mexican market, they are cheap and fresh. We cut the tortillas into triangles. We like a strong, big chip for dipping, so we cut the taco size tortillas into four large triangles. If you want smaller chips, just cut them smaller. No frying is necessary, we lightly spray the chips with cooking spray, sprinkle them with salt, and bake them until they are crisp.
These chips are easy to make and much better for you than fried tortilla chips. Homemade baked tortilla chips are perfect for dipping. We love eating them with:
Making your own chips at home is easy, fun, and cheaper too. Enjoy!
Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips
1 small package of white corn tortillas, taco size, cut into triangles
Cooking spray-we use a canola oil spray
1. Preheat the broiler to high. Put corn tortilla triangles 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.
2. Spray the triangles lightly with cooking spray. Turn over triangles and spray again. Sprinkle with salt, to taste.
3. Bake in the oven for about 3-4 minutes. Turn chips over and bake for another five 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!
4. Cool and serve with guacamole, salsa, or eat them plain.
