How to make homemade baked corn chips:
Buy regular or sprouted tortillas from the refrigerated section of your local health food store. Cut the tortillas into triangular pieces and place them on a baking sheet. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with course salt. Then simply place the prepared tortillas under the broiler for a few minutes until they are slightly crisp.
