Baked Tortilla Chips
Baked Tortilla Strips are great in salads
Why not bake your own tortilla chips? They're much less expensive and have only 3 ingredients. You will notice a big difference between these homemade chips and commercial ones, they have a true corn taste. You could also spice them up if you wanted to with a little chili powder and cumin, or a pinch of cayenne.
I love the baked tortilla strips. When I make tacos for my kids I make a taco salad for myself with just a few of these. Try these crunchy salad yummies on my Grilled Chicken Salad with Jicama. Make a nice amount and store in an air tight container or a zip bag and they're ready to go the next time you need them.
Baked Tortilla Chips or Strips
1 dozen corn tortillas, for chips cut into 4’s, or cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon canola or olive oil
2-3 pinches of kosher salt
1) Preheat oven to 300’.
2) Place cut tortillas into a medium size mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil over and add salt. Toss carefully with your hands to evenly coat. Spread the chips/strips over a cookie sheet being careful not to overlap. You will have to bake in a couple of batches. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until completely dry. Cool completely and store in an air tight zip bag or container.
*Serve chips with your favorite dip or strips over salads
