Homemade Tortilla Chips

IMG_6018.jpg

If you know me … you know that chips (crispy, salty, tortilla chips) are probably my favorite snack. Ever since going gluten-free for GI issues in high school, tortilla chips were that salty, savory snack that was easily accessible and perfect for dips. Though I am a big fan of some of the bagged options in the store (I grab a bag every time I go shopping), Brad had the idea to make our own with the 1,000 corn tortillas we have in the fridge (why does one pack come with legit a year supply?).

The FUN part about making your own chips is that you can make them any way you like - add seasonings, as much salt/pepper, and oil to your liking. The NUTRITIOUS part about making your own is that you’ll probably use significantly less oil and probably better oil than the commonly processed oils like canola, safflower oil on the market. Lastly, if you have an air fryer - this is how we rolled with it, but can definitely be made in the oven as well.

Ingredients:

  • Corn or Flour Tortillas (1 tortilla = ~6-8 chips depending on how small you cut)

  • Spray oil (coconut or avocado oil best for the high heat cooking)

  • Seasonings - salt, pepper … can add chili powder/paprika/whatever your heart desires!

Air Fryer Directions:

  1. Heat up air fryer for 5-10 minutes to get the heat flowing on 400F, spray with oil or use about 1 tbsp oil and spread

  2. Cut tortilla pizza style to make 6-8 slices

  3. Place 1 layer tortillas and spray with oil + seasonings

  4. Cook on 400F for about 5-7 minutes (first few batches may need a bit longer) until slightly golden and crispy!
