DIY Corn Chips

These look like they took some skill - Don't Panic. Corn chips made at home are fast, cheap, and easy. Not to mention reduced in fat and sodium. Perfect-o! from Don't Panic Mom

When I first saw a tutorial for DIY corn chips I believed with my whole-sodium loving heart that they couldn’t taste as good as the bagged variety. There was no way. One day we had a surplus of corn tortillas and no corn chips, so I grudgingly gave it a go. Not only were they beyond easy, but they tasted great. (Not to mention, according to Rachel Brandeis of the American Dietetic Association, we consume up to 50% less calories, sodium, and fat when we make food ourselves.) These crispy babies will cure any bag-addicts that may be reading.

DIY Corn Chips


  • 8-corn tortillas
  • Salt
  • Cooking spray (olive or canola oil)


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut tortillas into wedges.
  • Spray two cookie sheets with the cooking spray and arrange the tortilla wedges so none are touching.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Take them out when the edges have browned slightly.
  • Cool and serve with your favorite dip or salsa. They can also be served alongside your favorite chili.
