To give you a price comparison, a bag of good tortilla chips is about $4 in Central Ohio. The tortilla chips I made started with a refrigerated package of 36 white corn tortilla that cost $2.39.  Each tortilla makes 6 chips, for a total of 216 tortilla chips. Now, that is probably 3-4 times more than is in a bag. And BONUS – none of my fresh homemade chips are broken!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove 6 tortillas from the package. Re-seal the package to keep the remaining tortillas from drying out.

Using a brush, apply a light coat of oil to one side of the first tortilla. Lay oil side down on your work surface, and apply a light coat of oil to the other side of the tortilla. Lay a second tortilla on top of the first and brush the side facing up lightly with oil. (do not brush oil on two sides, the oil on the first tortilla will coat the underside of the second). Keep adding tortillas, brushing only the top side with oil until you have a stack of six tortillas.

Using a sharp knife, cut the tortillas into 6 wedges. Cut all the way thru. One stack will make 36 chips.

Lay the wedges out in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

  1. Wow! I am going to try this! My family devours tortilla chips, but they love the ones we are served at a local Mexican restaurant, which have little or no salt. We actually buy some of their queso cheese sauce and a big bag of tortilla chips to take home after we have finished our meal.
