I’m allergic to corn so traditional tortilla chips don’t work for me. I can tolerate the organic version, but those aren’t always available. So I make my own.

*Note: I tested this recipe on a 1200 watt microwave. If your microwave has a higher or lower wattage, adjust the cook time as needed.
- 4 medium flour tortillas
- salt (optional)
- microwave-safe plate
- Place a tortilla on the plate and lightly coat both sides with oil. Add salt or other seasonings if desired.
- Put tortilla in microwave for 1 minute.
- Flip and put back in for 40 secs (Make sure to keep an eye out to avoid burning).
- Let sit to cool for 1 or 2 minutes.
- Repeat 3 more times.
- Break apart and enjoy!
Tortilla chips can also be made in the oven.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
- Cut tortillas into triangles (like a pizza) and lay in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Coat both sides with oil and add salt and other seasonings if desired.
- Bake for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- Let cool and enjoy!
