Do you love tortilla chips, but hate all the oil that is in all the store bought brands? Baked tortilla chips are SO quick and easy to make and don’t have any of the oil or salt. Plus, making your own is so much cheaper and you can adjust the flavors to your liking. I love the chili lime flavor for summer and this recipe requires only 3 ingredients and 20 minutes!

First, you need to find a large pack of whole grain yellow corn tortillas. White corn tortillas are more processed, so you want to steer clear of those. I bought my pack at Aldi, which is my go-to store to save money and find quality products. The Mission Brand has no added oil.

I use a pizza cutter to slice stacks of tortillas into triangles. It’s super fast and easy and you can slice up to about 6-8 tortillas at the same time. Place tortillas on a cutting board and slice into quarters or sixths depending on how large you want them.

Spread the tortillas on to a foil or parchment lined baking sheet in one layer. If you use foil, you’ll want to spray lightly with cooking spray. To make it completely no-oil, use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Second, you need fresh large limes (or more of the small ones). Don’t use the lime juice bottles – doesn’t taste the same! Cut the lime in half & squeeze juice into a small bowl using a lemon/lime hand squeezer like this one. Then use a basting brush (I like the silicone ones) to brush the lime juice onto the tortillas. The silicone basting brushes are so much easier to clean and last much longer. I just throw mine in the dishwasher!

No salt needed on these no-oil chili lime tortilla chips

Lastly, sprinkle chili powder on the chips. The lime juice will help make the powder stick. Use as much chili powder as you like! I did not include salt in this recipe, but you could sprinkle some on if you desire – however go easy! A little goes a long way and you want to reduce the amount of salt you are consuming anyways. The lime flavor activates the same salt tastebuds so you get that same flavor without all the sodium, so the salt really isn’t needed. You’ll like it without!

Bake the chili lime tortilla chips for 10 minutes at 350º. Then flip the chips and bake for 5-10 more minutes until very lightly browned and crispness desired. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes. The chips will actually crisp up a little more after cooling, so don’t worry if they are slightly soft after removing from oven. You don’t want to cook so long they burn or brown too much.

After they are cooled, you can store these chili lime tortillas chips in a sealed storage bag or container in your pantry. You can even use this recipe to make plain tortilla chips – just leave off the chili and lime!

These chips go GREAT with any salsa, Healthy Vegan Nacho Cheese, guacamole, or even dip in this Sweet & Creamy Chickpea Salad.
