Light & Crispy Oil-Free Tortilla Chips
Light and crispy! This method of making oil-free tortilla chips gives the best results for both taste and texture. I have experimented with other methods of making oil-free tortillas, but this one definitely is the winner.
Without the oil, that wonderful corn flavor comes through. For even more flavor, you can kick it up with ground spices like cumin and hot pepper as noted below in the ingredients.
Homemade light & crispy oil-free tortillas are better tasting and healthier for you than any store bought chip. Store-bought tortilla chips usually have around 8 grams of fat for a 1 ounce serving which means about 50% of the total calories are from oil, adding unnecessary and unhealthy fat calories. These oil-free tortillas are fast to make. If you already have the tortillas and Olivaise , a homemade oil-free vegan mayonnaise, or the Luscious Oil-free Vegan Butter, these chips are faster to make than to going to the store to buy.
They stay crispy and fresh tasting for a long time, so can be made ahead if you have guests coming and other dishes to prepare. Six tortillas that are about 6in diameter, cut in four fit perfectly on a typical size bake sheet.
