Want to make your own "corn chips"?

I am never going to buy corn chips of any kind again because these are SO EASY and SO DELICIOUS to make yourself!  I don't do a lot of snacking but when I want to these are perfect and also  a great accompaniment to soups and guacamole among other things.  This was a recipe from Marlene  Koch's Eat What You Love cookbook.....my favorite...in all my life I have never liked so many recipes from one cookbook.  I'm sure she won't mind if I share as long as you go out and buy her cookbook.  You will buy it won't you?  And no, I get nothing for it and we're not related.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
slice corn tortillas into thin strips (or you can cut them into pie shapes like the ones in the store or whatever shape you want) and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper (saves your cookie sheets and your time trying to scrub them clean)
spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt
bake for 10 minutes or until brown and crisp.  ENJOY!!!!

Marlene instructs you to turn once during baking but I don't have time for that! LOL!  They turn out great without that additional step.


  1. Wow - I think I could do this! They look delicious, I can't wait to try them.

  2. This sounds delicious! And the perfect accompaniment to winter soups and stews.

  3. Oooh. Homemade cornchips. That sounds wonderful.


  4. Thank you so much for this. I make these but usually fry them but from now on I will be baking them. Think of of all the calories I will be saving.

  5. Well, now I know why mine did not taste all that well. I used the flour tortillas. I bet the corn ones taste much better.

  6. These sound awesome!!! I am definitely going to make some this afternoon - thanks for sharing your how to..
