These crispy homemade whole wheat tortilla chips are not only simple to make but your family won’t even miss the store bought chips!
I will never be the homemade graham cracker or homemade sauce kind of cook. I enjoy cooking for my family but making everything homemade is just not for me. So when I read this post from a good friend who blogs at Mom to Mom Nutrition, I laughed because I had just made these homemade tortilla chips. I actually made them out of necessity since we had run out of store bought tortilla chips and I had just made this Meat Lovers Mexican Dip for dinner that evening. So when I realized we were out of the store bought tortilla chips Dan had asked “why don’t you make them yourself?” Of course! Why hadn’t I thought of that before!?!
Don’t get me wrong, I have NOTHING against others making homemade crackers, sauce, bread, etc, it’s just not for me. With my 3 kids at home, I have such limited time and so many other interests that I’d rather spend time doing rather than spend more time in the kitchen.
The best part about these are they take less than 5 minutes to prep and about 10 minutes to make. This is besides the fact they are whole wheat and you know how I LOVE whole grain food!
I used a cooling rack on top of a rimmed cookie sheet to get them nice and crispy. If you don’t have the type of cooling rack that will fit into your baking pan, just flip them half way through baking and they should still turn out crispy.
Don’t they look irresistible? My husband loved them, my kids devoured them, and I actually enjoyed them much more than the typical store bought chips. A win-win all around! Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
