Baked whole wheat tortilla chips are a simple and healthier version of regular chips. The recipe uses whole wheat tortillas, which some people may have in their pantry. We need to try to make half of our grain choices whole grains throughout the day.
These are baked instead of fried. They can be seasoned with whatever seasoning you prefer. These chips are simple to make so you can get the kids involved too.

- Extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, or cooking spray
