January 29th is National Corn Chip Day. Celebrate by making your own corn chips, free of oil and salt, with corn tortillas. So easy! Try them with our easy REAL Winter Salsa
Corn tortillas – Read the ingredients! Corn tortillas should contain corn, of course and not much else. We purchase corn tortillas made of corn, water and lime, and they are salt-free. Watch out. Some popular corn tortillas contain things like Cellulose Gum (from cotton seeds and/or wood pulp), Sodium propionate, Propionic acid, Sodium hydroxide, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Sorbic acid, Fumaric acid, Dextrose, FD&C Yellow #5, Yellow #6 and Red #40.
Preheat oven to 350oF.
On a cutting board, cut each tortilla into 8 triangles, by first cutting the circle into two equal semicircles, then cutting each piece into 4 triangles. Cut as many tortillas as desired. Lay the pieces out on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Cook for 10 minutes until chips are just starting to brown. Remove from oven. Chips are best served immediately, warm, with REAL Winter Salsa.
