Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

I’m not kidding when I saw we are OBSESSED with chips and dip around here. I’m always making salsa and queso for parties, for snacking, for any reason I can think of. So I finally decided to make some homemade tortilla chips to go along with all that dip. These baked chips turned out so well; they taste so fresh and crispy! I used Old El Paso Burrito Tortillas, cut them into 8 chips, and they turned out to be the perfect size. 

I thought the Tequila Lime flavor would be extra fun, instead of just making plain chips. It adds the perfect kick. I can’t stop snacking on these! Just give me a bowl of these tortilla chips, a vat of queso, and a pitcher of margaritas, and I’m a happy gal. At least on game day or Cinco de Mayo, I have a good excuse to do just that…
