Baked Tortilla Chips with a Hint of Lime

I remember being in high school or maybe junior high, I’m not sure, and my family being OBSESSED with Tortilla chips with a hint of lime.  My mom bought the bags by the 2s and we’d beg to ‘snack’ for dinner so that we could binge on the chips.

I remember my lips stinging after while from the salt but going back for more.  We didn’t even dip the chips in salsa or use them in a taco salad: we just ate them.

I haven’t seen these bags of chips around the stores in awhile – I’m not sure if it is because they’re no longer made or because my trips down the chip aisle are much more rare.  Because I’ve been making homemade baked taco shells I’ve found myself with a surplus of corn tortillas and without a craving for more tacos.  Enter these chips.


Baked Tortilla Chips with a Hint of Lime


corn tortillas
cooking spray
1 lime, zested
1 Tablespoon table salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine salt and lime zest in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Spray corn tortillas with cooking spray on each side and cut into triangles.
  4. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  5. Place in oven and bake 7-10 minutes, or until beginning to crisp.
  6. Remove from oven, sprinkle with salt mixture, and return to oven.
  7. Bake until uniformly crisp and brown, 3-5 minutes longer.

    They do make those chips, and they’re one of my favorites… of course, making them myself probably means I’ll eat lots more of them…

    I’ve been meaning to make my own tortilla chips… great to know how simple they are – and love the addition of lime!

    I love those hint of lime chips!  I haven’t seen them around lately either but I’m glad you found such a simple way to replicate them.  I can’t wait to try them!

    we have had some lately, and i think we recently got an off-brand version somewhere too.
