Fresh Baked Tortilla Chips

I hesitate to call these “homemade” tortilla chips, because I purchased the tortillas themselves.  I still feel good about baking them at home.  We’ve done them a few times, and they turn out super tasty and aren’t full of preservatives! Editor’s Note: You could take this idea a step further and make homemade corn tortillas, and then make them into these chips. YUM. As a side note, we make homemade flour tortillas every time we have tacos instead of buying them. The taste difference is SO worth it – they are so much fresher with such a wonderful flavor. This is the exact recipe we use, and I highly recommend it!

Along with the ingredients, you’ll need a baking sheet and a pizza cutter, though a knife will work just as well.

Lightly brush oil onto both sides of the tortillas, stack them and cut into eighths. You could also use a cooking spray to coat the tortillas with oil.
