Homemade Tortilla Chips

It's is so super easy to make your own tortilla chips and they are so much healthier than store bought because they are baked in the oven, not fried.  If you're like me you buy flour tortillas at the store for a recipe and then always have more than half the pack leftover that just sit in the refrigerator until you throw them out.  I really hate wasting food so lately I've been taking my leftover flour and corn tortillas and making chips out of them.  They are so delicious and I think taste much better than the store bought kind.


Flour or Corn Tortillas
Non-stick cooking spray
Coarse salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray or use a silpat liner so some other non-stick liner.  Cut your tortillas into long 2 inch wide strips.  Then take each long strip and cut into triangles.  You can make sqauares to if you prefer, they taste the same :)  Lay cut tortillas in a single layer on the lined cookie sheet and then spray the tops of the cut tortillas with non-stick cooking spray. 

Sprinkle generously with coarse salt and bakc in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the tortillas are light to golden brown.  Let cool on sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a large bowl to cool completely.  Continue in small batches until you use up all your tortillas.  Serve with any dip you like!
