Here’s an easy way to bake your own tortilla chips!
Soft corn tortillas
Preheat oven to 325 F. and place yellow corn tortillas on the wire rack. Bake until they begin to turn a darker color, about ten minutes, but remove immediately, as they will burn if left in the oven any longer.
To make non-fat crispy taco shells, place each tortilla so that it is centered over two of the wires on the rack, placing the edges of the torillas under the other wires. Bake as above – they will curl around in an upside-down ‘U’ shape to make perfect taco shells.

This is super convenient! I love that they don’t really take any longer than regular taco shells, and I don’t have to worry about all the other added ingredients.
In response to the question about storage, they seem to get pretty tough after a while – even a couple hours. They might improve if you heat them up again, but they’re definitely best right out of the oven. Next time I’m going to try brushing them with some lime juice.
