No-Fry Tortilla Chips Recipe

Step 1

A delicious low-fat, low-sodium alternative to conventional corn chips. They go especially well with Guacamole and Spicy Salsa (see separate recipes).

Step 2

Immerse tortillas one at a time in water. Let drain briefly, then lay flat.

Step 3

If desired, sprinkle tops lightly with salt.

Step 4

Cut each tortilla into 6 to 8 wedges.

Step 5

Cover a nonstick baking sheet with a single layer of tortilla wedges, salt side up. Place close together but do not overlap.

Step 6

Bake in a 500 F oven for 4 minutes. Turn with a spatula; then continue to bake until golden brown and crisp, an additional 3 minutes for corn tortillas and 1 minute for flour tortillas. (Store in an airtight bag until ready to serve.)

Yield: 6 servings, 12 cups

One Serving = 2 cups, or 12 to 16 chips
