Healthy Homeade Baked Tortilla Chips

These Homeade chips are the best!! Before I started with this healthy kick, I used to cut up the tortillas and throw them in a boiling hot tub of grease. Now, I bake them and they taste even better! With all the different spices, there is no end to the combinations that you can come up with! These go great with the Black Bean Salad with Corn, Red Peppers, Avocado & Lime-Cilantro Vinaigrette!

All you need are corn tortillas (Mission brand is Gluten Free) and salt If you want to use additional spices to give them some more kick, there are a few suggestions below.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stack tortillas one on top of the other and use kitchen scissors or a big honkin knife to cut them into slices like you would cut up a pizza. 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). Try not to have the edges or each chip touching. (NOTE: If you must use an air-bake pan, try 350 degrees for 20 minutes.).

Shake salt and desired toppings over tortillas.

Topping Options:  (choose any combo):
  • SPICES: paprika, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder (sparingly), cayenne pepper (sparingly, will add heat!). You can mix all of these into an empty spice container and save them for your next batch! 
  • CHEESES: grated parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, etc. 
  • SWEET: cinnamon & sugar. 
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 6 mins).  Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 mins before serving in order to let them fully crispen. If you like them Extra Crispy like I do,  put them back in your turned off oven at least 10 mins or until ready to serve. They will still be warm too!  (watch them, you may need to leave oven door cracked to prevent over browning).
