Oven-Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

Baking corn tortillas chips is one of my favorite things to do.  It's fast, easy and healthy.  If you've never tried it, now's your chance.  Why buy bags of unhealthy Tostitos when you can make your own at home?

I use Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortillas by Mission, because they have a lower fat and carb count than most tortillas, and they bake well.

Makes 4 servings, 16 Chips Each

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

- 8 Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas, Extra Thin
- Non-Stick Cooking Spray, Butter Flavored
- 1/4 tsp salt or choice of seasoning, optional

- Baking Sheet
- Pizza Cutter or Knife
- Aluminum Foil

Place 4 corn tortillas on a cutting board and cut your tortillas into triangles by first cutting in half, turning and cutting in half again. At this point you should have 4 big triangles.  Cut these in half diagonally and you will have 8 triangles, 32 in total with all 4 tortillas.

You can definitely cut them by 1/6ths, but I prefer 1/8ths - whichever you prefer.  Just remember your serving will be 12 chips instead of 16. 

Lay your chips on a baking sheet covered with foil.  Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, and allow to cool before serving.

You don't have to use cooking spray, but if you desire to use salt or your own special seasoning, spray the top of the chips with non-stick cooking spray so that the seasoning sticks to the chips.

Snacks, Guacamole, Salsa, King Ranch Chicken, and much more!
