DIY Tortilla chips- with a hint of lime

Am I a broken record?

Posting Another Tortilla Chip Recipe? On this blog, I have shown you how to Make your own Tortilla chips,  Make Heart shaped tortilla chips for Valentines Day, Make Pumpkin spice tortilla chips, and NOW, I am going to show you how to make Tortilla chips with a hint of lime.

It’s funny, I have had “Tortilla Chips-with a hint of lime”  on my ” List of things to make”  for about a year now.  I was determined to figure out which store-bought spice would taste like the Lime chips you buy at the store.   Then, last week, I had some leftover limes sitting around, and I was like. ” DUH”.  Use a LIME for Lime flavored chips!


To make “Hint of lime” tortilla chips. you will need four ingredients. Corn tortillas Salt a lime ( juice and zest) melted coconut oil

You simply mix together your oil and the lime juice.  Brush the tortilla chips with that mixture.  THEN you top your chips with lime zest and salt. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.  it is important to check on the chips every few minutes.  they can go from underdone to WAY overdone in just a few minutes

Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 20 chips
  • 6 Corn Tortillas
  • 1 lime -juice and zest
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • salt to taste
  1. Cut Your tortillas into a “chip” shape. ( Any shape you choose). In a small bowl, mix oil and lime juice. Using a pastry brush, brush the chips with the lime and oil mixture. Sprinkle with lime zest and salt. Bake in the oven at 350 for 12 minutes.


These turned out MUCH better than I was expecting.  Next time, I might just salt them a little more.

I’m sorry, I’m so dumb on a computer, I don’t know how to get this recipe. I read where it takes Corn Tortillas, salt, lime juice and zest and coconut oil. What do I click on to get the actual quantities of ingredients? If you don’t have time to reply I can certainly understand. Thanks, Marie
