Tortilla chips are one of those things that's really hard to find a truly healthy version of in stores. Even if they're made with organic corn, they're nearly always made with a polyunsaturated fat. What's a chip lovin' girl to do? Deep fried chips are delicious, but it's way too much work to heat up the oil and grease up your kitchen on a regular basis.
My grandma is a big fan of The Food Network. A while back when I was visiting her we sat down to watch some cooking shows. Giada was on, and she made baked tortilla chips. It looked ridiculously easy. I tried it, and it was (ridiculously easy).
Here's the super simple process:
These chips are (of course) best eaten fresh, so I like to make them in small batches.
Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips
recipe from Giada | makes about 2 servings
- 6 corn tortillas (I like to use sprouted corn tortillas)
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- Real salt to taste
Preheat your oven to 350 F (175 C)
Brush each side of the tortillas evenly with the melted coconut oil. Cut into triangles with a big knife. Arrange on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
Bake in preheated oven until golden and crispy, about 15-17 minutes (you might want to start checking the tortillas at the 12 minute mark). Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
