Baked Tortilla Chips
I just purchased a tub of delicious hummus from Costco, and decided to enjoy it with homemade baked chips…well, not the whole thing. I didn’t grow up with chips and can easily due without, but we’re snowed in, and I got the time. So, why the hell not?
Plus, this way we can control the amount and kind of oil used and ditch the packaged chips full of funny ingredients.
This is the basic recipe for nice crispy chips. Use flavored oil, for more flavored chips. Sprinkle chili powder, lime zest or experiment with dried herbs.
- small corn tortillas
- oil (with high smoking point)
- garlic salt
- dried herbs herbs
- chili powder
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Brush tortillas with oil on both sides. Stack them on top of each other and cut the tortillas into wedges.
- Grease a baking dish, spread over the tortilla wedges in a single layer. Sprinkle with spices if using.
- Bake for 6 minutes, turn the wedges over . Sprinkle with some salt, and bake for another 9 minutes or ’till they begin to color.
- Remove from the oven and place on a paper towel to remover excess oil. Repeat on the other side if desired.
- Sprinkle with dried herbs if using.
If chips are chewy, bake longer or opt for a different brand with thinner tortillas.
The spices can stand the high heat better than dried herbs and can be added anytime during the cooking process.
