Homemade Tortilla Chips

Today we’re sharing a recipe for Homemade Tortilla Chips.  These chips are not only frugal, easy, but also healthy.

Do you have extra tortillas to use up?

It always seems that you buy a package for a recipe and have so many leftover.  We try to live a zero waste lifestyle and had to think of something to use up some corn tortillas. 

This recipe makes enough chips for about 2 people.  You can double or triple this recipe to make enough chips for more people or a family.

You can use homemade or store-bought corn tortillas for this recipe.  If you have masa and enjoy homemade tortillas, we would recommend making homemade for these chips.  However, store-bought tortillas will work just as well. 

You can customize this recipe by adding any spices you have or prefer.  If you have a favorite spice for all of your Mexican food, this would be great to sprinkle on these chips.  Also if you enjoy the flavor of lime tortilla chips you could add some lime zest to these chips.  The possibilities are really endless and allow you to get creative.

The other great thing is that these chips are baked and not fried.  That means these chips are much healthier than traditional tortilla chips.  They are also much healthier than other flavored chips such as Doritos as they do contain all the sodium and other unhealthy ingredients.
