Ingredients

  • Extra virgin olive oil – olive oil is a healthy oil that will help your tortilla chips crisp up in the oven.
  • Salt – salt and tortilla chips go hand-in-hand.
  • Lime juice (optional) – a little lime juice mixed into your olive oil will flavor your chips!
  • Seasonings of choice (optional) – choose a seasoning that you love and sprinkle it on your chips, hot out of the oven.

Ingredients

  • 10 small corn tortillas
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • ½ lime, juiced optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice corn tortillas into wedges. I like to slice tortillas into quarters, and then slice the quarters in half.
  • Place wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Mix olive oil with lime juice (optional). Using a basting brush, brush wedges with a very light layer of olive oil. Flip wedges over and brush other sides with a very light layer of olive oil.
  • Bake chips for 8-10 minutes until crispy. No need to flip the chips in the oven.
  • Salt and season chips (with seasoning of choice) immediately out of the oven. Be generous with the salt!
  • Repeat for consecutive batches. Best served warm (with salsa or guac!).
  • Store extras in an airtight container. Over time, the chips will lose a bit of their crispiness.

Notes

Too much olive oil can cause the chips to not crisp up in the oven! No oil can cause the same problem too! A little oil is perfect.
