Don't throw out your broken or stale tortilla chips - use them to make cornbread! I love this with honey butter (try Whipped Honey Butter With Varieties!). NOTE: this recipe uses salted chips. If you are using unsalted chips, you will need to add 1/2 tsp. salt to your dry ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: pulse tortilla chips in a blender or food processor to get them finely crushed. It's okay if they aren't as finely crushed as cornmeal; just get them as small as you can.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix butter/margarine, milk and egg.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry, and stir just until combined. Mixture may be slightly lumpy. Pour batter into a greased 8x8-inch square baking dish.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
