This has to be one of the most useful recipes on my blog. I’ve been mentioning these low calorie tortilla chips for what seems like years, but I’ve held off on putting them in official blog post form because they’re so simple. It seems a bit extra of me but whatevs, it just makes pointing to them so much easier.
These low calorie tortilla chips are super simple to make and only use 3 ingredients. Well, really just one ingredient if you want plain chips.
How to Make Low Calorie Tortilla Chips
The recipe calls for tortillas made by Mission. I buy them at Walmart and Kroger, but other readers have found them in local grocery stores as well. If you have trouble finding them, any thin corn tortilla will do. For macro comparison, three of the Mission extra thin tortillas have 120 calories, 24 grams of carbs, 3 grams of protein, and 1.5 grams of fat.
Cut the tortillas into 6 triangles and place on baking sheet(s) sprayed with cooking spray. Then spray the top of the tortillas with a tiny bit more cooking spray and sprinkle salt over them. Pop them in the oven for 12-14 minutes at 400ºF (for 12 tortillas on two half sheet pans) and you’re done!
You can drizzle a little lime juice over the top of your finished chips for a nice touch. There’s also the option of getting creative with seasoning options before baking. A little chili lime seasoning or Tajin would be my first suggestion.

Since you’ll have the thin corn tortillas on hand, you might as well make my perfect-for-meal-prep baked beef tacos. They’re as easy as filling tortillas with your choice of protein, folding, covering, and baking. You can make tons of these things and easily reheat them all week long.
