Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips


Am I driving you nuts yet with this whole tortilla business??? I've seriously been  in a tortilla kick. February has become the month of the tortilla. You know when you get a new "toy all you want to do is play around with it for an endless amount of time. It's like that with the tortilla. Sad isn't it? 

When I started making my own, I couldn't just stop at making burritos and tacos. I decided to make some chips as well. These are the plain unsalted kind. As much as I like the store bought stuff they can get a bit flimsy and sometimes have too much salt stuck on them. These are healthier, not oily and definitely sturdy for good dippage. I cut the tortillas into quarters. I saw them served like that once when I went to a Brazillian restaurant. Thought it was neat idea. Baked them in a 400˚F preheated oven and baked for 10 minutes. Just until they for slightly brown and was definitely crispy. Serve them as is. I had this with some fresh guacamole. Definitely holds the dip well than those flimsy ones. It has a good crunch, too.

Place the quarters tortilla piece on an ungreased baking sheet. Baked for roughly 10 minutes or until tortillas have lightly brown and are crisp to the touch.

An excellent culmination of Tortilla Month! Sometimes, I don't want a messy (the way I eat them) taco or burrito, and dipping into salsa and guacamole - especially homemade - is the way to go.

I've been eating a lot of avocado's lately. And I always make my own chips. I deep fry them and I should try yours which are far healthier.

Nice. I've been sitting on a big bag of masa waiting to make tortillas and this is one of the reasons. I love homemade chips.

Hahaha you are hilarious!

Okay, fine. You've sold me on the tortilla. I'm going to do it! Maybe attempt homemade taquitos?

Or maybe just a quesadilla for the first round. :)

Yummy! These remind me of Stacy's Baked Pita Chips. I know they are tortillas but that is what it reminded me of when I saw them :)

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction said...

I still need to make my own tortillas... and then I need to make some baked tortilla chips. I think they'd be sooooooo good with bean dip.

Preparing Tortillas is as easier as when you make rice and it taste better if you do yourself.
