Did you know that it is citrus season right now?! For some reason it seems kinda out of place to me since I seem to crave citrus-y things much more in the summertime when it’s really hot outside. But, hey, I’ll take it!
I guess I should have been cued up to the fact that it is citrus season by the hundreds of orange trees in full bloom that I pass every morning on my way to work. Some of them are in such random places too, like in front of apartment buildings or randomly growing up in roadway medians, and I’m always so sad to see most of the delicious fruit go to waste. I’m thinking I might need to start helping them out a little bit!
Besides these Homemade Cool Ranch Doritos, Hint of Lime Chips have always been my favorite. Who am I kidding, I love anything that is crunchy and salty! But seriously, the best thing about hint of lime tortilla chips are that they aren’t just crunchy and salty, they are also really refreshing with the added lime flavor.
Now, I’m not sure what the exact ingredients are in the lime flavored chips you can buy at the store, but I can tell you that there are only 4 ingredients in these chips! Sometimes, the less ingredients the better. And these are also super easy to make. All you need is about 3 minutes of prep and 12 minutes in the oven and then if you are anything like me, 30 seconds to inhale them all 🙂
- 15–20 corn tortillas
- 5 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lime juice.
- Brush each side of the tortilla with a generous amount of lime juice mixture and sprinkle desired amount of salt onto one side of the tortilla. Stack tortillas up and cut into 8 equal triangles. Place tortilla slices on a large sheet pan, making sure they aren’t overlapping. Bake chips for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip tortilla slices over and let sit 5 minutes. They will crisp up nicely as they cool.
- Depending on how many you make you will need to cook chips in batches.
