Recipes National Tortilla Chip Day

Hi all! Coach Mindy here! 

If you're like me, you look for any reason to celebrate... without further adieu... Happy National Tortilla Chip Day! 

Who doesn't love a basket of chips with salsa? I know I sure do. Chips are my snack of choice. Here is my go to healthy chip recipe with some awesome dips that won't break your BITE bank.

Tortilla Chips

  1. Cut your favorite brand of corn tortillas into 6 pieces.
  2. Brush or spray olive oil. You can use a different oil like avocado oil, coconut oil, or peanut oil. I prefer coconut or olive oil
  3. Sprinkle them with a very coarse salt.
  4. Bake @ 375 for 10-15 minutes.

Tip: use a spray oil or oil mister so you can control the amount of oil on chips. Dark sheet pans make a crispier chip and cook faster so keep an eye out if you use a dark pan.

Now for the crowned glory of the Tortilla Chip... THE DIPS!!
