This is one of those Frankenfood type ideas, riddled with stuff you probably shouldn't eat if you're really trying to lose weight. However, if you're maintaining and don't have issues with gluten, and you're short on time and need a chippy crunch to go along with your salsa ... this SUPER easy idea is within reach!

These crispy baked tortilla chips are wonderful and completely fill the need for a solid tortilla chip. The last thing I want to do is suggest these are bad or evil, but I also always want to give my honest opinion. In my experience, these tortillas ... "gum up the works". I never really gain when I eat them, but they will stop any weight loss momentum going, that I have had had ... dead in its tracks. It seems like it takes a week to get things moving, again. So ... if you're maintaining and this fits within your daily carb allowance ... eat up! If you're on induction or really doing well with a big nice period of loss ... I suggest moving on ... and eat a salad!

Induction Friendly Tip: You can put grated cheese in a non-stick Teflon pan and cook it until it fries up. Then, scrape it out and place it on a plate to harden. Then, crack it into chips and ... this will also work to use for dipping. You can also melt the cheese in a microwave. Scrape it out and let the fried cheese disk cool, in place of the baked tortilla chips. This'll work, too!

Just started this low carb, high pro, high fat thing about 10 days ago. (I've spent about half that time hunting recipes). I've made 3 different bread recipes, only one of which turned out tasting satisfactory. Oh, well. Anyway, love your site! Saw a pic of your chips on line, then was kinda bummed when I realized they were made from purchased tortilla chips, ('cause I've been ordering tons of expensive ingredients to make things from scratch). Annnyway, this morning, I wanted nachos for breakfast, so I adapted one of Elana's recipes, whose site I LOVE, but her chips looked kind of hard and thick. I used 1 Tbsp of coconut flour, 1/2 cup almond flour, 2 Tbsp flax meal meal, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 egg white, and about 1 1/2 Tbsp water. Stirred it all together and put it between parchment paper and rolled it suuuper thin, scored them, and baked for 15 minutes at 350°F. And, WOW! Thin, sturdy (after baking --- the dough itself was a little sticky, before baking), crispy, yummy. Thanks again for your site! If it weren't for all you great recipe inventors online, I wouldn't have a clue how to pursue this lifestyle.

Hi Sherry, I'm assuming the original author is referring to Elana Amsterdam of Elana's Pantry fame.  I hope this helps! :-D

Who is Elana?

FYI: I buy those tortillas at for a LOT less than Amazon!

HI Annette, I'm a big fan of Netrition and order from them regularly. Prices change, sales occur, etc. There are a variety of places to purchase these. I suggest trying a variety of sources to pin down the best price. Netrition would be one of my first stops, to be sure!
