Home Baked Tortilla Chips


I don't know about you, but besides the delicious margarita's I get served, my favorite part of going out for Mexican food is the never ending bowl of tortilla chips they place in front of you. The crispy, slightly salty, corn chips that can be devoured in mere seconds is the real draw. By the time my meal and my third margarita comes, I am so full of those crispy triangles. 

Although I love going out for dinner, my wallet does not. I had to come up with an alternative way to get my chip fix. I don't like store bought tortilla chips at all so I decided how hard can it be? That statement usually get's me in some sort of cooking catastrophe , but not this time! Making your own baked tortilla chips is not only super simple but a lot healthier than the fried version at your local Cantina!

All you do is get a pack of 6" corn tortillas (not flour! I tried that...it turned out like a baked pile of flour!) and spread some sort of oil on them. I used grape seed oil because it has no taste.


Cut the tortillas in half then in thirds. This will give you 6 chips per tortilla.



Place on a cooking sheet that has been sprayed. Making sure they do not touch or they won't get as crispy. And after all, that's what we're going for. Then sprinkle with a little salt (I use Himalayan  Pink Salt) and pop in a 350ยบ oven for 12-15 minutes!


Serve with your favorite pico del gallo, salsa, gooey cheese, or just munch away at night when you're craving chips!

  1. These are so good! I do these as well. If you want the flour ones to work, don't spray them or put oil on them, just put them in the oven as-is. So good! But the corn ones are ultimately more nutritious. :)
