I was out of tortilla chips, but I had a package of corn tortillas. Just be aware, many of the corn tortillas at the market have preservatives, and some include artificial coloring! I buy mine at Trader Joe's and here's the ingredients: Stone Ground Corn, Water and Traces of Lime!
Ingredients
- Package of Corn Tortillas
- Olive Oil
- Salt, to taste

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a basting brush and lightly brush both sides of each tortilla. With a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla into 6 pieces, place on a baking sheet and lightly salt. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes at 400 degrees, turning chips over halfway through cooking time. Let cool and enjoy with your favorite dip, or pair it with some Tomatillo Salsa!
