How to make Crispy Baked Southwestern Tortilla Chips
These Crispy Baked Southwestern Tortilla Chips are crazy simple to make. Just cut up all those old corn tortillas sitting in your pantry into chip wedges, spray them with cooking spray, and season them with a mixture of cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, and salt. There is some amazing spice magic goin’ on with these chips!
Lay them out flat on baking sheets and bake them just until they’re crispy and dried out. Let them cool and you’re ready to chow down.
