Baked Tortilla Chips

Boy, I must have really missed blogging, or I just love to type!  I want to share my favorite low fat, and frugal snack with you all.  Baked tortilla chips.

How funny, the picture I found shows almost exactly what I do!!

Take a small stack of corn tortillas and cut in 4ths.  Spray both sides with a non-stick spray and salt lightly.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, keep a close eye on them, we want them to be light brown and no longer soft.

These are really good and hearty.  Great with salsa or any healthy dip.

Awesome Erin! Thanks for this great tip, my boys would even have fun making these. Have you ever made them with corn tortillas?

Hi Erin,

I take it one step further and make my own whole wheat tortillas. Then I cut them and make my chips. I can't get tortillas in Mongolia and living in Mexico I got use to the homemade stuff anyway. Since they're not as round as the store-bought ones, they make for some interesting shaped chips!

One thing that gives homemade flour tortillas a good flavor is adding about 2 tbsps of ground oats in with the flour.

Audra, corn torillas work great, too!
