Are Garden Salsa Sun Chips Spicy

Creating a homemade version of the mildly spicy and flavorful Garden Salsa SunChips allows you to enjoy a similar taste experience with the satisfaction of making them from scratch. These chips offer a delightful combination of garden-fresh herbs and spices with a gentle heat kick. Here’s a recipe to make your own spicy garden salsa flavored chips that mimic the beloved snack.

Ingredients for Chips:

  • 2 cups of masa harina (corn flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water (adjust as needed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Ingredients for Garden Salsa Seasoning:

  • 1 teaspoon of tomato powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (adjust for more or less heat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried chives
  • Salt to taste


Making the Chips:

  1. Prepare the Dough: In a mixing bowl, combine the masa harina and salt. Gradually add water and mix until a dough forms. It should be pliable and not sticky. Add a little more water or masa harina as needed to achieve the right consistency.
  2. Form the Chips: Divide the dough into small balls. Place each ball between two pieces of wax paper and flatten with a rolling pin or tortilla press to your desired thickness.
  3. Cut into Shapes: Using a knife or a cookie cutter, cut the flattened dough into triangles or your desired chip shape.
  4. Cook the Chips: Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Cook each chip for about 1-2 minutes on each side until they are dry and start to show some browning. Let them cool.

Making the Seasoning:

  1. Mix the Seasoning: In a small bowl, combine the tomato powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, dried parsley, dried cilantro, dried chives, and salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution.
  2. Season the Chips: Once the chips are cool, lightly spray them with cooking spray or brush with a thin layer of oil. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over the chips, making sure each chip is well coated.

Final Steps:

  1. Bake for Crispiness: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Arrange the seasoned chips on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until crispy.
  2. Cool and Serve: Let the chips cool before serving to allow them to crisp up further.


  • Adjusting Heat: Feel free to play around with the amount of cayenne pepper in the seasoning to tailor the spice level to your taste.
  • Storage: Store leftover chips in an airtight container to keep them crispy.

Enjoy your homemade Garden Salsa SunChips with their spicy, savory flavor as a satisfying snack or a unique side to your favorite dishes!
