Spicy oven baked corn tortilla chips

Yess it is snack time! Healthy snacks at that. How does spicy oven baked corn tortilla chips sound? Pretty good wouldn’t you say? These tortilla chips make you want to come back for more again and again. They  are so easy to make and only takes you about 15 minutes, so great for the weekend. Best of all you can flavour them anyway you like. Chili? Oh yes. Paprika? Yum. Salt? We got ya covered. Cheese? No problem.

So how do we start? First of all we need some good quality corn tortillas. You can use store bought ones but as it so easy to make corn tortillas I used home made tortillas. You can add your own flavours to this base recipe for corn tortillas and add e.g. dried tomato’s, chili peppers, jalapeño peppers, chives or onion. The options are really endless.

Tortilla chips cut in wedges

Normally tortilla chips are deep fried in oil which makes it really tasty but also gives it loads of extra fat. I don’t about you but I only have to look at anything fatty to make it stick to my hips. So to keep it low fat I use this little trick. After cutting the tortilla in small wedges I put them on a baking tray and use cooking spray to cover the chips with a small coat of oil. You can also spray the whole tortillas first (front and back) before cutting them in wedges. If you do not have cooking spray you can use some sunflower/vegetable oil and put on the tortillas using a brush.

Oven baked tortilla chips

Pre heat the oven at 435 ℉ (225 ℃) before baking. Put the tortilla chips in the oven for about 15 minutes. About mid way through the baking time, I turn the tortilla chips to make sure the nice and brown on both sides. If they lack color leave them in a couple of minutes longer.

When they come out of the oven immediately sprinkle the spices on the wedges. I used chili and paprika but you can add what ever you like. As long as chips are hot out of the oven you can sprinkle finely grated cheese or any kind of powder on them and it will stick.

I like to let the spicy oven baked tortilla chips cool off so they can get nice and crispy. Serve with your favorite salsa or guacamole dip. It you manage to have some left over store them in an air tight back for up to two week.
