From: EatingWell Magazine January/February 2009

These tortilla chips are baked, not fried, and a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of chili powder add flavor without tons of calories. Plus with 5 grams less fat per serving than a packaged version, they deliver all the crunch without the guilt.

  • 12 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position oven racks in the middle and lower third of oven; preheat to 375 °F.
  2. Coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray and cut into quarters. Place tortilla wedges in an even layer on 2 large baking sheets. Combine lime juice and chili powder in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on each tortilla wedge and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake the tortillas, switching the baking sheets halfway through, until golden and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the thickness of the tortillas).
  • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for 1 to 2 days.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

No oil I cooked them in a toaster oven and didn't use any oil at all. They were crispy and delicious.

Better than store bought... These were quick and easy, just make sure you don't skimp on the oil and also leave them in the oven a little bit longer than required for that extra crispiness...otherwise they get pretty chewy :)
