Zesty Home-Baked Tortilla Chips

Mission Corn TortillasTortilla chips are the classic appetizer in Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants and great for scooping up creamy guacamole and other exotic dips.  However, these tasty wedges can be packed with salt and fat.  It’s easier than you might think to make your own seasoned chips sans the grease and sodium.  In this recipe, sprinkle your chips with some fresh lime zest after baking for a flavorful citrus finish.

Tortillas are a suitable replacement for bread if you’re watching your sodium intake.  One Mission white corn tortilla has just 5 mg of sodium compared to 160 mg in one slice of whole wheat bread.
