Homemade Tortilla Chips Recipe

What goes better with homemade guacamole than tortilla chips? This Cinco de Mayo, make them both from scratch!

If you've never had homemade tortilla chips, they are so yummy but taste very different than the store-bought kind. A little more chewy and a lot less salty (but you won't miss the sodium!)

corn tortillas
olive oil
sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Brush tops of tortillas lightly with olive oil. Layer 4-5 tortillas, oiled side up. Cut into eighths with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.

Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle a bit of freshly ground sea salt on top. Cook for 12 minutes.

Pour the chips onto some paper towels to cool (if you can wait that long). If you're not going to eat them immediately, store in a zip-top bag. When you're ready to dig into that guacamole, crisp them up again by putting them back into the 350 degree oven for a few minutes.
