Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Craving a crunchy snack? Learn how to make your very own tortilla chips with this easy recipe. To give your chips a little zing, try this adjustment: In step 1, add 1/2 tablespoon of lime juice to the oil and whisk until combined. Then paint the lime-oil mix on the chips before they go in the oven. You can also mix in 1 teaspoon lime zest with the salt before you sprinkle it on top. Yum!

  2. Use a pizza cutter or kitchen scissors to cut each tortilla into 8 triangles. (If you stack them, they also cut easily with a kid-safe knife).
  3. Spread the triangles on a baking sheet in a single layer, and sprinkle with salt, if you wish.
  4.  Bake the chips for 10 minutes, or until golden.
  5. Sprinkle the tortilla chips with more salt, if you like, and serve with your favorite dip!
