No-Fry Tortilla Chips

A delicious low-fat, low-sodium alternative to conventional corn chips. They go especially well with guacamole and spicy salsa.


1 pk corn tortillas (12 ounces) OR
1 pk flour tortillas (14 ounces), 10-inch size
Salt (optional)


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

If desired, sprinkle tops lightly with salt.

Cut each tortilla into 6 to 8 wedges.

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

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
