Spicy Baked Corn Chips

Spicy Baked Corn Chips from

Have you ever made your own baked corn chips? They are super easy to make and best of all you get to control the seasoning on them! This go-around I made a blend of Mexican spices to spice up these chips. The day I made these baked corned chips was the same day that my husband had his “brew crew” over to brew up a few batch of home brew (beer). I made them a huge Mexican spread. I served them these chips and they all thought they were fried chips. I ensured them that they were baked in the oven for just 10 minutes. I think I impressed them two-fold. One, I made my own chips. Two, they were baked chips that tasted fried! Making baked corned chips is the best way to use up excess corn tortillas. Later this week, you’ll see a super simple and yet authentic enchilada recipe using corn tortillas. After I made the guys the enchiladas I knew I didn’t want to have extra corn tortillas laying around so I decided to use up the rest of the tortillas to make my own chips. This is such a simple thing to make and yet everyone forgets to make their own!

I also love that these are a gluten free snack.  I have a few friends and family members that have a gluten allergy and I’m always looking for new things to make them… these spicy baked corn chips, my friend, are it! Whether you just want a snack for yourself or entertaining a crowd these spicy baked corned chips are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

    I have done this a few times, but I just put salt on mine. Love the seasoning on these!

      Stephanie, its time to “spice it up”! 🙂

    I think this is just a great idea. Much better than succumbing to all the additives of store bought chips. I also am pretty sure they are much tastier?

      Teresa–I totally agree with you! These taste great and so fresh!

    I am all gung-ho to make my own tortillas this week for Cinco De Mayo, and this is a great idea for chips on the side 🙂

      Ashley–I want to make my own tortillas too! But I started with making my own chips from the store-bought variety! Give these a try, for sure!

    Love the seasoning on these! I usually just end up sticking with plain salt!

      Jessica–you need to spice it up! Even if not spicy add a little additional flavor to your chips!
