Tortilla Chips

Tortilla chips Source: jeffreyw

If I don't keep a bag of tortilla chips around and have to make my own every time, I should theoretically eat less of them. I don't think it's working.


  • 6 small corn tortillas
  • ½ Tbsp vegetable or olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


Every oven is a little different, as are brands of tortillas. Watch the chips closely for color change and adjust cooking time as needed.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stack the tortillas on top of each other, then cut into six equal sized wedges.
  2. Place the cut tortillas in a large bowl and drizzle the oil over top. Gently toss the tortilla pieces in the oil until they're all lightly coated.
  3. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread the tortilla pieces out over the surface so that they're in a single layer and overlapping as little as possible. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  4. Bake the chips for ten minutes, then gently stir and flip the chips. Return the chips to the oven and bake until golden brown (3-5 minutes more). Season with salt once more.
  5. Allow the chips to cool before serving. They will crisp even further as they cool down.
