A quick, easy-to-make, healthy starter which is a popular choice in Mexico. The tortillas are baked and made with minimal oil from a blend of whole wheat flour and maize flour instead of the traditional Mexican tortillas made with refined flour which are also deep fried. Whole wheat flour has been used as it abounds in fibre which aids in controlling blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Enjoy these chips with tomato salsa and get your taste buds going by enjoying its lively flavours. You can also make a large batch of these at one go and store them in an air-tight container for the contingencies when hunger strikes... unexpectedly.

This recipe is made using less maize flour and more wheat flour but the taste is quite satisfying. Baking gives it the perfect crispness... My father loved it and I am happy that though he is a diabetic he can now indulge in this snack occasionally.
