Crispy Corn Chips

Corn tortillas and an oven—that is all you need to make wholesome corn chips in your own kitchen. This recipe lists several optional toppings too. Add one or more to ‘up the flavor’ of this healthful snack. After a short cooling period that will boost the crispiness of the chips, you can enjoy them as-is or serve them with a plant-based dip, such as our Rainbow Salsa, Homemade Hummus, Red Bell Pepper Dip, or Lentil Spread.
