Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Tortilla chips are one my favorite snacks. Crispy and salty (or sweet) you definitely can’t go wrong with tortilla chips. As a gluten free gal (or guy) you have to be careful with the tortilla chips that you buy because they may contain wheat/gluten ingredients so always remember to read the labels! What if you could skip the chip aisle and make your own chips at home! Sounds that a tasty idea.

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

You get to season them to your chip which is the perfect opportunity to get creative – you can make Italian Tortilla Chips (Italian seasoning, garlic + parmesan), Southwestern Lime Chips (Southwest seasoning + a sprinkle of lime juice) or Sweet Tortilla Chips (sprinkle with cinnamon + sugar).  Plus, they are baked, not fried! 

Ingredients

  • Corn Tortillas (make sure they are gluten free!)
  • Olive Oil Mister or Pam Spray
  • Kosher Salt
  • Seasoning of your choice: try Penzey’s Southwest seasoning OR lime juice OR make it sweet by adding cinnamon & sugar (sweet is definitely my favorite)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. 
  2. Spray each side of the tortilla with Olive Oil/Pam.  Use a fair amount for crispiness.  Sprinkle one side with Kosher salt and seasoning. 
  3. Stack tortillas and cut into fourths for large chips or eighths for smaller chips.  Place in a varying pattern on cookie sheet.  Cooking Tip: Do not crowd the chips, leave ample space in between chips or they will not get crispy.  
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.  Begin to check on the chips at around 8 minutes.  If your oven heats unevenly, you may have to flip the pan halfway through.  Remove from oven and let cool. Serve with your favorite dip or snack on them without!
