Homemade Tortilla Chips in the Microwave – Easy, Healthy Recipe

I already LOVE homemade potato chips made in the microwave, so I figured I should be able to do the same thing with tortilla chips. Yep, it works! Very good and much healthier than store-bought fried chips.

 

3 corn tortillas
cooking spray or oil mister
coarse-ground salt

Cut each tortilla in 6 pieces using a pizza cutter or knife. Lightly spray on both sides with cooking spray. (I like to use my olive oil mister to spray.) Sprinkle with the salt. Spread out on a microwave-safe dinner plate so pieces are not touching. Microwave for 1 minute to 90 seconds (lower wattage microwaves will need the 90 seconds). Flip chips over and microwave on other side 1 minute to 90 seconds. If not yet crispy, flip again and cook another 30 seconds, continuing until crispy. Serve warm.
