Ditch the processed store-bought chips and learn how to make tortilla chips at home. In three different flavor varieties, you will never need to buy tortilla chips again! Plus they’re baked making them a healthy snack.
80% of the time I’m a sweet snacker. My go-to are energy balls or bars or a healthy cookie, but the other 20% of the time is occupied by two things: chips and salsa and chips and hummus.
If I’m gonna go savory, I’m gonna go chips. I have a feeling I’m not alone on this one.
But regular old potato chips don’t do it for me. I think it’s because when I look at them, I can already feel the icky feeling you get after eating a few too many handfuls of them. You know the feeling…where your face feels like it might break out in any second?

But tortilla chips? Totally different story. I think this is especially true of homemade tortilla chips, that are healthier, more cost-effective and allow for lots of different flavor varieties.
And that whole “omg I just crushed a bag of chips” feeling? Not an option! Well, maybe if you ate 3 trays worth, but unfortunately you’re going to have to exert your own will-power on that one!
Corn tortillas (I prefer organic)
Spice-blend of choice
That’s right, just two ingredients! I know, I know, learning how to make tortilla chips was maybe less exciting than you thought, but at least you know better than buying store-bought ever again!
Plus, we can ditch the over-processed oils and bake them instead. So simple you actually feel bad NOT doing it!
Serves: 3-4 dozen chips
- 1 package corn tortillas (I prefer organic)
- juice, 1 lime
- chili powder
- sea salt
