Here’s an easy “how to” make your own Baked Corn Tortilla Chip Strips, without all the unnecessary added fats, calories and sodium. Plus, corn tortillas are always “gluten free”!
8 corn tortillas (fresh or frozen, thawed)
2 pinches of salt
Non-stick cooking spray
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly coat the surface of an edged rectangular baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Next cut each corn tortilla in half, the halves in quarters and with the quarters still put-together begin cutting 1/8 to 1/4 inch strips. Note: Some strips will be wider and some not-so-wide.
Spread the strips out completely covering the baking sheet as best you can. Spray the strips with another light coating of non-stick cooking spray. Get 2 pinches of salt and sprinkle all over the tortilla strips. Using a pair of tongs, toss strips around a few times, but keep strips pretty flat.
Put tortilla strips into oven and bake for only 5-6 minutes, keeping a close eye on them after a few minutes to make sure they become a golden brown and not dark brown.
Remove Baked Corn Tortilla Strips from oven and allow to cool, before serving over top your favorite Mexican dip, salad or tortilla soup.
