The finished product

It can be challenging to find oil-free tortilla chips on the market. Sometimes even the “baked” varieties contain unwanted ingredients. But here’s a solution which is easy, cheaper, and it my opinion, much tastier!

Purchase corn tortillas, the type that come in a paper wrapper. The ingredients are typically corn, water, and lime. Cut into quarters, brush or spritz with a little lime juice, and add a salt (or low salt/salt-free) seasoning or other spice. Bake on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet at 350 for 13-15 minutes until crispy (they may require more time, it depends on your oven. Keep an eye on them and be sure they’re crispy, but not burnt. They’ll harden up a bit as they sit, too.) Note: You can also make tostada shells using this method, simply bake the tortilla whole rather than cutting it.

For the batch shown in the photos, I used NutraSalt Low-Sodium Seasoned Sea Salt. It packs a bit of a punch due to the added spices and paprika. Serve with your favorite salsa (mine happens to be any mango or peach based salsa, which offsets the spices nicely). Bon Appetit!
