Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips


  • White corn tortillas
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Secret ingredient: Cumin
  • Sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice the tortillas into triangles                                                                                                                            IMG_6098
  3. Coat each triangle with a thin layer of olive oil
  4. Spread the tortillas out onto a cookie sheet lined with foil and season with cumin & sea saltIMG_6099
  5. Bake for about 8 minutes or until tortillas are browned around the edges & crispy IMG_6102
  6. I like to serve these with some black beans, salsa, and/or homemade guacamole.  You could even melt a little cheese on them to make some healthier nachos.                                   IMG_5870



These are one of the simplest things to make.  They taste so much better than store-bought tortilla chips– the cumin makes them so flavorful– AND they are much healthier as well

It’s Super Bowl Sunday tomorrow and everybody loves to snack on some fun finger foods during the game.

The Denver Broncos (from my hometown) are playing tomorrow, so a Super Bowl get-together is a must this year!  Enjoy these healthy nachos while watching the Broncos bring their A-Game tomorrow!


  • Flaxseed tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s or blue corn tortilla chips  IMG_4025
  • Reduced fat shredded 3-cheese-blend or monterey jack cheese
  • Black beans
  • Optional: Chicken or a lean cut of steak (such as top sirloin)


  1. Preheat the oven on Broil
  2. Line the tortilla chips out on a baking sheet covered with foil.  Then add black beans IMG_4183IMG_4184
  3. Top the chips & beans with cheese and place in the oven to bake IMG_4185
  4. Broil for about 5-8 min. until the cheese is bubbling & slightly toasted and the chips are browned around the edges to your likingIMG_4188

Try making different variations of these nachos varying the cheese and meats.  For tomorrow’s game, I am going to make a batch with Monterey Jack cheese, black beans & slices of top sirloin steak

Go Broncos!
