I love tortilla chips! But most of the tortilla chips you can buy in the supermarket are full of trans fats, color additives and other chemical ingredients. I don't like this, so once I made tortillas at home, I thought I had to try to make tortilla chips.
The recipe can't be easier, you cut the tortillas, bake them just 5 minutes and add your favorite spices! We added a little of olive oil before baking, but you can skip this step.
The result is amazing, a really CRUNCHY tortilla chips with a slightly spicy flavor because of the cayenne pepper. You can use almost any spice you have at home.
This recipe is ideal if you are a lactose intolerant or a celiac, because the tortillas are made of corn flour and the recipe doesn't include dairy products. Since a couple weeks ago, I try to avoid dairy products because I don't feel well after eating them and many packed tortilla chips contain cheese, but with this recipe I won't have that problem anymore.
We've also prepared our own vegan nacho cheese dip that tastes awesome. It has the same texture and a very similar flavor, you won't believe it's not real cheese! The ingredients are so simple and healthy, but be careful, it's really addictive!
