Leave those fried tortilla chips at the store. You can make your own tastier, healthier, cheaper version in under 15 minutes. Here’s how:

How to Make Tortilla Chips

Cook Time:

10-12 minutes

Ingredients

(8) corn tortillas
Cooking oil
Salt

What You Do:

Microwave Tortillas

Place the tortillas under a damp paper towel, and microwave for 30 seconds to soften.

Oil and Salt Tortillas

Oil and salt both sides of your tortillas.

Cut Tortillas into Wedges

Stack the tortillas on top of each other, and cut them into wedges. A pizza cutter makes quick work of this, but a knife will work, too.

Spread Tortillas on Cookie Sheet

Stick the tortilla wedges on a cookie sheet, and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

Homemade Tortilla Chips

Your chips are done when they’re crispy and lightly browned.

Tips:

  • If you have over-sized cookie sheets (half sheets), you can do 10 tortillas at a time
  • Sprinkle your chips with chili powder for an added kick or cinnamon and sugar for a sweet treat
