Why I Love Homemade Tortilla Chips
- So much better than store-bought. This is one of those recipes that becomes addictive. Yes, I went through a bit of a tortilla chip phase. Seriously though, they are so much better than store-bought. Here’s why: you can control how oily they are, they taste fresher, and the flavor is definitely richer and warmer. I use Homemade Tortilla Chips in pretty much every salsa recipe I’ve ever made. They look nicer and are flakier. I would say they are comparable to the chips you might find at your favorite authentic Mexican restaurant. They have a nice oily sheen to them and they are just perfect with a little salt sprinkled over the top.
- Very easy to make. This recipe take less than 30 minutes to make for a nice-sized bag. You’re working with only 3 ingredients and cleanup is not worth even mentioning because the only thing that gets dirty is a single pan and maybe, if you’re like me, some crumbs on your shirt.
- Healthier than store-bought. This Tortilla Chip Recipe is healthier than some store-bought brands because I use olive oil instead of unhealthy oils like palm oil. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants and is is believed to be beneficial for heart-health. Additionally, some studies demonstrate that olive oil may reduce inflammation similar to that of some pain-relievers.(1)(2)

See? This is such an easy recipe. Cut the tortillas into wedge shapes, add them to a skillet coated with oil, and fry them up. Doesn’t get much easier than that right? Are you really going to go back to buying those bland store-bought chips now that you know How To Make Tortilla Chips?
