Who doesn’t like Nachos Chips? I think people of all ages enjoy this snack. Now let’s try my oven baked nachos chips recipe. The best thing about this snack is that you just have to change the dip and it is an all-new recipe. Pretty versatile!
Also known as Tortilla chips, these are primarily used in Mexican cuisine and are often served with cheese dip or salsa.
It is a simple and easy snack recipe made with healthy ingredients. I have used the combination of Maize flour and whole wheat flour to make these baked Mexican Nachos chips.
Apart from the ingredients, I have opted for the healthiest way to make these Nachos Chips. Instead of deep-frying, I have baked these Nachos.
Alright, do not compare the taste of baked nachos chips with market bought fried nachos chips. You cannot compare them. That’s what I feel.
So initially you or your family might feel the difference in the taste of these homemade healthy Baked Nachos. But as soon as you adapt the taste of it, you will love eating them as these baked nachos chips are absolutely guilt-free.

Baked Nachos Chips Recipe
In a saucepan, boil the water. It should be really hot while mixing with flour.
In another mixing bowl, add maize flour, whole wheat flour, salt. Black pepper and baking soda. Mix all the ingredients and start adding hot water. Mix everything using a spatula and be careful while mixing as water will be hot.
Add oil and make a stiff but smooth dough. As every flour has a different absorption capacity, so if you feel the dough is dry, add water accordingly.
Keep oven for preheating at 180 °C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into two portions and roll each portion into a thin sheet using two layers of parchment paper. While rolling, make sure it’s of even thickness else baking will not be even.
Now using a knife cut the rolled sheet into small triangles and prick it well.
So pricking here is important, else your baked nachos chips will puff up.
Place all the shaped nachos on a lined baking tray and bake it in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 20 minutes.
Every oven behaves differently so you know your oven better. Based upon your oven the baking time can differ. So bake the nachos until these become crispy.
Once baked, take out the tray from the oven and serve freshly baked Nachos Chips with your choice of dip. My family loves to have these with cheese dip or tandoori mayonnaise.
