There isn’t much that says yummy like homemade goodness. This is why I love making my own tortilla chips. Not only ar ether better for you, but they taste amazing fresh out of the oven. Plus, it’s so easy to do! Top with your favorite homemade salsa or guacamole…. Drooling yet?
This is all you need:
- 8 small (6 inch) corn tortillas
- olive oil
- sea salt to taste
Turn oven on to 375 degrees and allow to preheat and make sure the oven racks are in the middle of the oven. Lay tortillas out on a work surface and lightly coat tortillas with the oil, flip and coat the other side. You can use a spray bottle or a small BBQ brush. Just don’t over-do the olive oil. Cut into quarters.
Get out a couple large baking sheets or cookie sheets and lay the tortillas out on the sheets, avoiding any over-lapping.
Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, turning the tortilla pieces over with a tongs about half way through. You don’t want them to burn. They should become golden brown and crispy as they bake and will even crisp up more after you remove them from the oven.
Remove and immediately sprinkle with the sea salt or any other flavorings you like while the chips are still warm.
Will make 32 chips – enough for a large gathering. Let me know how yours turned out!
