Homemade tortilla chips are fun and easy to make – about 25 minutes to prep and cook.
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
8-10 corn tortillas
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup salsa (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Put the oil in a small bowl and, using a pastry brush, lightly brush the top and bottom of one of the corn tortillas with the oil. Put the tortilla on a cutting board, and brush the top of the next tortilla with oil, putting the non-oiled side on top of the first tortilla so they share any extra oil. Continue with the remaining tortillas, brushing only the top side and stacking them. Cut the tortillas into eighths, cutting across the middle so they are triangle shaped, and spread them on one or two large baking sheets in a single layer. Sprinkle them evenly with the salt.
Bake them for about 15 minutes until they are lightly browned and crisp, but remove them before they get dark brown. Serve with salsa, if desired.
