Easy Homemade Tortilla Chips

"Use these chips to top your tortilla soup, or use them for dipping in salsa or your favorite tortilla dip. They're very easy to make, but must be watched closely to keep from burning."

    What a treat! I am so glad you shared a way to eat healthy tortilla chips with salsa. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I didn't have popcorn salt, so I used regular salt (sparingly) and it turned out quite well. The only thing that was MUCH different from the written recipe was the cooking time. I ended up having to cook my chips at 425 for about 12 minutes to make them crispy. They turned out really well after I cooked them that long! If I'd only cooked them the 3-4 minutes they'd have been terribly gummy, otherwise I'd have given this recipe 5 stars!

    These are great! I just made some for myself for a snack. I am going to switch to these now instead of buying chips. On Weight Watchers, each tortilla is only 1 point so you can have chips and salsa w/o feeling guilty!

    ok so i don't know what happened. after reading the other reviews i thought i'd give this a try. they took a lot longer than 3-4 minutes for me i had them in there for 7-8 minutes at least. once they came out some were done and some weren't. i didn't have them over lapping so i don't know why this didn't quite work for me. if anyone has a tip or something that might make a difference please pet me know

    I have made tortilla chips like this for years. A very nice addition to a Mexican dinner or to use to dip guacamole. Thanks for posting.

    Wonderful and tasty. This worked like a charm, and none of the fat you get from frying! I used sea salt instead of popcorn salt. I will be doing this often. Thank you!


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
