Homemade Tortilla Chips

I love me some salt.  And with all this running, I have to make extra efforts to put more salt in my food so I stay hydrated and you won't find me face down on some trail.  Hmm, bad visual there... sorry Mom  and Dad... anyways...

Enter one of my favorite snacks: Tortilla Chips!
A few weeks ago the hubby came back from grocery shopping at Costco and he bought a HUGE pack of white corn tortillas.  I rolled my eyes and said something along the lines of why did you buy that many tortillas?  You know 99% of corn is GMO.  What the heck am I going to make with all of those?  {FYI I always get grumpy when he grocery shops.  That's my job haha}

And so they went into the freezer.
Until I got over my GMO issue and realized our salsa has been lonely in the fridge.  And we've been out of store bought tortilla chips for a week and a half.  What a disgrace!
pre-cooked and ready to go into the oven!
So I decided to make chips with some of those soft tortillas.  
The verdict?  Pretty darn tasty!  And ridiculously easy.  Go make some.  I know you have 100+ tortillas hiding in your freezer.
crispy, crunchy, and ready to be eaten!
corn tortillas (white, yellow, large, small)
olive oil
sea salt
(paprika, cumin cracked pepper, lime juice - optional)
1.  Preheat oven to 350 F  
2.  Brush both sides of tortillas with olive oil (or use a misto).  Make sure tortilla doesn't get too soggy.
3.  Sprinkle with sea salt and any other flavorings you'd like.  Get creative!
4.  Cut in 6 or 8 pieces and place on parchment lined baking sheets.
5.  Bake for 8 minutes, rotate baking sheets, and bake for another 8 minutes.
6.  Let cool and enjoy!
