Homemade Tortilla Chips and Salsa
These homemade tortilla chips are lots of fun to make with your kids and are truly irresistible straight out of the oven. (Well, you should let them cool for a few minutes before chowing down on them.) Plus, if you eat ¼ of the chips, you’ll only be eating about 170 calories, with about 7% of that from fat, and 4 grams of fiber, so you can enjoy your healthy snack in good conscience! We like to dip our chips in chunky salsa (look for brands that have no added sugar) for an even healthier and more zesty snack!
- 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 8 - 10 corn tortillas
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 cup salsa optional
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Put the oil in a small bowl, and, using a pastry brush, lightly brush the top and bottom of one of the corn tortillas with the oil. Put the tortilla on a cutting board, and brush the top of the next tortilla with oil, putting the non-oiled side on top of the first tortilla so they share any extra oil. Continue with the remaining tortillas, brushing only the top side and stacking them.
Cut the tortillas into eighths, cutting across the middle so they are triangle shaped, and spread them on one or two large baking sheets in a single layer. Sprinkle them evenly with the salt.
Bake them for about 15 minutes until they are lightly browned and crisp, but remove them before they get dark brown. Serve with salsa, if desired.
