A healthy version of the tortilla chips you buy at the store, baked with olive oil and spices to create a healthy version of this addictive snack chip.
Homemade tortilla chips
Baked tortilla chips couldn’t be any easier and more versatile to make. I love seasoning them with smoked paprika and cumin but feel free to get creative. Turn up the heat with cayenne or keep it mellow with garlic powder.
While traditional fried tortilla chips are high in fat and calories (and oh-so-addictive), my healthier baked version is just a little over 100 calories per serving.
What kind of friend would I be if I shared my pico de gallo recipe without telling you how to make those crispy chips I served alongside? Don’t worry – I wouldn’t leave you hanging like that!

Frequently asked questions:
How do you prevent soggy tortilla chips?
If you want to ensure your chips won’t be soggy, they must be laid out in an single layer in the oven to prevent steaming. Otherwise, they will not crisp up.
How long do fresh tortilla chips keep for?
Leftovers can keep up to 4 days in an airtight container.
What toppings can you add to tortilla chips?
To make them sweeter you could use cinnamon sugar. For a spicy kick, I would add ancho chili powder.
If you don’t have the time to source corn or flour tortillas then store-bought tortilla chips will work fine. You can use flour tortillas but they will cook faster and will need to keep an eye on them when cooking.
