Sometimes the best snacks are simple.  They don’t have to be anything complicated to be delicious.  These baked corn tortilla chips are super easy, simple and delicious.

Corn chips piled into a bowl and scattered around bowl on white board.

These chips use corn tortillas cut into wedges.  They are sprayed lightly with a non-stick spray and then baked until crisp.  That’s really all there is….well, I do like a sprinkling of salt, but really…that is it!

This recipe is super easily adaptable to make as many chips as you might need or as many as you want to eat.  You are limited to oven space and the amount of time you have.

When making these you want to be careful you don’t over crowd your pans or the chips will stick together.  A big sticky blob isn’t what you are striving for…. trust me on this!

    I love simple snacks too Kathy! Especially how these are baked. My husband took me to Chillis the other day (fancy people that we are, ha!!) and the chips were drenched in oil, overly deep fried. I couldn’t even eat them thinking about how clogged my arteries would be getting. My husband on the other hand…….eh. Anyhow, I’d love these for taco night!
