Baked Tortilla Chips


Tortilla chips are a delicious snack and the perfect side for tacos or a Meatless Mexican Lasagna.  Though I've tried the store-bought baked kind, they were a bit bland for my tastes so I decided to give my own a try with some corn tortillas I needed to use up.










First I stacked 5 corn tortillas  and cut them into quarters.


I laid the tortillas out on a foil lined pan, then sprinkled some salt, chili powder, and garlic powder over them for some flavor.  Though I know you can spray some oil, I wanted to just try them with seasoning.


Next I baked them in the oven for 10 minutes, then shut off the oven and let them sit for 10 more minutes to get extra crispy.


The results were great--we had fresh, tasty, baked tortilla chips with the Mexican Lasagna I made.  After the first 10 minutes I grabbed one to try and it was a bit chewy, so the extra 10 minutes really  made the difference for getting this just right.  Gotta love easy.
