Homemade Tortilla Chips

Makes 4 servings

• 2 whole-grain tortillas (see notes)
• 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more as needed

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

2. Cut tortillas into chip-size portions. Put the cut tortillas, chili powder, and salt in a large bowl. Toss to coat.

3. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on the prepared sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or just until crisp and edges are slightly browned. Sprinkle with more salt, if desired.

Chef’s Notes:
• For a gluten-free option, use brown rice tortillas instead of whole-grain tortillas.
• Flavored tortillas, like spicy or chipotle, work best in this recipe.
