Baked Tortilla Chips

Baked Tortilla Chips

Flour tortillas
Olive oil
Optional seasoning of your choice (salt, garlic, paprika, chili powder, or cayenne pepper)

Preheat oven to 400° F. Lay the tortillas out on a cutting board, spray with olive oil spray on both sides. If using a seasoning, sprinkle on both sides now. Stack the tortillas in piles of eight (8) tortillas. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut through the pile of tortillas, cutting into 4 equal triangles.

Arrange tortilla triangles in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake for approximately 5 to 7 minutes until crisp and the edges start to curl and turn lightly brown. Watch the chips carefully after 5 minutes, as they can burn easily. Once the chips are done, remove from the oven to cool. Chips will continue to crisp as they cool.

These are an easy and fun snack. My husband likes them more than crackers. I like that they are lower in sodium and half the fat (2.9 gm of fat per 10 chips) of the traditional tortilla chips I buy at the store. Thanks to the What’s Cooking America website for this great idea.

I love these!! I think they have to be one of the best tortilla chips. Just to let you know Jared is not on whole milk, we tried for 2 weeks to get him to drink it and he wouldn't he would have it in his cereal so we went back to skim and figured it just was not worth the fight.

I just read your food blog for the first time. I really like it. My husband reacts also very severely to any kind of MSG, (His heart goes into Arrythmias.) We have learned many of the same things that you have. Our Dr. denies that it has anything to do with food. But we know it does.

We have a question for you: Do you know anything about freeze dried fruits and vegetables? What effect does that process have upon the fruit and vegetables? We are considering adding those to our pantry and would just like to know without trying them. Our Email address is:

Thank you so much, we have really enjoyed confirming much information which we have learned and all the additional tips.
