Healthy Corn Tortilla Chips (Vegan)

My husband loves Mexican food.  This also means he loves tortilla chips. He loves yellow corn tortilla chips, blue corn tortilla chips, and every type of tortilla chip in the middle.

If you have ever looked at the ingredients in a store-bought bag of tortilla chips, the ingredients are hardly healthy. Most tortilla chips are fried.

Not these healthy corn tortilla chips!  When we went unprocessed, he said we just had to come up with a healthy corn tortilla chip recipe to satisfy his cravings.  I think this tortilla chip recipe does just that, plus they are simple to make.

These tortilla chips go great with our homemade guacamole and our homemade salsa.
