I’ve been short on time this week, so today’s post is less of a recipe and more a reminder of a quick and easy way to make non-oil corn-tortilla chips at home.
Baked chips are a great alternative to the greasy, overpriced chips you get at the store, plus you can use whatever flavors you want for their seasoning.
The basics of what you’ll need are:
- Corn tortillas
- Spices and flavorings
- Cooking spray
- Parchment paper
Basically, all you need to do is cut the tortillas into whatever shapes you want (a pizza cutter works well for this).
Then lay the parchment paper on a baking sheet and very lightly coat with cooking spray.
Lay out the tortilla pieces and season with whatever seasonings you like. You can use more cooking spray on top after adding the spices, but it’s not really necessary. Note that the seasonings may darken and look burnt as the chips cook, but unless you really overcook them, it won’t add a burnt taste to the chips. I used this faux-Doritos seasoning, but things like cumin, onion salt, garlic salt, curry seasoning or even ranch-dressing seasoning work well. Some cooks may also brush on some lime juice for added flavor.
Cook in a 350-degree oven for about 6-8 minutes, rotate the pan, if necessary, and cook another 6-8 minutes or until crispy.
