Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°.

  • To prepare chips, lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Combine the chili powder, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 4 wedges. Arrange wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 7 minutes or until crisp and golden.
