Healthy Baked Corn Tortilla Chips (Homemade)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Emily Elizabeth

A wonderful healthy snack and a great way to use up leftover corn tortillas. Great with Easy Authentic Guacamole or for making nachos. I vary the toppings on this depending on what I will be serving them with, but lately have just been making them plain. VARIATION: If you need more healthy oils in your diet, brush with olive oil.

I realized how this could make a perfect chili or taco bowl... cut to size & bake in a muffin tin! (Who needs to buy those ones on t.v). This will be perfect when I take a crockpot of chili to the neighborhood Super Bowl bowl party next month. Bake up some mini shells to fill with the chili. No more buying paper bowls or Fritos to serve along side! Thanks for the idea :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 corn tortillas (Misson brand is Gluten Free)
  • salt (optional, additional spice options listed in directions)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Stack tortillas one on top of the other and use kitchen sizzors to cut them into 4 slices like you would cut up a pizza.
  3. Spread them out in a single layer on a cookie sheet (not air-bake) , spacing them at least 1/4" apart (they will be chewy instead of crispy if not spaced properly). (NOTE: If you must use an air-bake pan, try 350 degrees for 20 minutes.).
  4. Shake salt and desired toppings over tortillas.
  5. TOPPING OPTIONS (choose any combo): SPICES: paprika, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder (sparingly), cayenne pepper (sparingly, will add heat!). CHEESES: grated parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, etc. or try SWEET: cinnamon & sugar.
  6. Bake 8-12 mins or until chips are starting to get crispy and slightly golden brown at the edges (check every 1-2 minutes after 8 mins).
  7. Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 mins before serving in order to let them fully crispen. Extra Crispy: put back in turned off oven at least 10 mins or until ready to serve for extra crispy and warm chips (watch them, you may need to leave oven door cracked to prevent over browning).
