EZ Baked Tortilla Chips

Chips, Chips and more Chips!  My husband and kids loves them, so we are always running out!  And it is especially frustrating for Mom who can never seem to find enough on sale--and that stay fresh! One way we make up for this is by making our own tortilla chips.  I found this idea somewhere in the blogosphere and will be eternally grateful for a recipe that has saved me time and time again!!   I use these chips for soups, dips, salsa and salads-- and just for snacks. The best part is that they are so much healthier than their fried counter parts!  My kids love to help make these too!!

My ingredients:
  1. Stack of Corn Tortillas
  2. Kosher Salt
  3. Cooking Spray (preferably Canola Oil) -- the Crisco brand is actually my favorite but they all work!
  4. 1/8 Freshly Squeezed Lime (Optional)

  5.  Start buy cutting your stack of tortilla into six equal pieces

    Lay flat on cookie sheet -- try not to overlap pieces.

    Spray tortilla wedges with cooking spray lightly -- making sure each piece is covered!

    Flip each wedge and spray the side facing up with cooking spray!

    Grab a pinch of kosher salt and sprinkle evenly over all your tortilla wedges.  Avoid putting too much!!  A little goes a long way!

    Avoid trying to use your camera while sprinkling--Oops. :)

    Bake in your oven for 8 - 12 minutes at 400 degrees.
    8 minutes for a softer, chewier chip or up to 12 minutes for a crispier chip.

    Remove from the oven and eat immediately -- or let it cool.  Your choice. 
    Sprinkle warm chips lightly with lime juice -- for that touch of lime taste!

    And Enjoy!

I hope you love these as much as we do!  You can also cut these into strips for salad and soup toppings!

Have a spectacular day!!
