Are Sun Chips Garden Salsa Spicy

Creating a homemade version of Sun Chips Garden Salsa with a spicy twist can bring an exciting flavor to your snack time. This recipe captures the essence of the beloved snack with an added kick for those who enjoy a little heat. By baking these chips, you’ll achieve a delightful crunch with a healthier profile compared to traditional frying. Here’s how you can make your own Spicy Garden Salsa Sun Chips at home.

Ingredients for the Chips:

  • 2 cups masa harina (corn flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for the Spicy Garden Salsa Seasoning:

  • 1 tablespoon tomato powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or adjust according to heat preference)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt to taste


Preparing the Chips:

  1. Mix the Dough: In a large bowl, combine the masa harina and salt. Gradually add the warm water, mixing until a dough forms. If the dough feels too dry, add a bit more water. It should be firm and springy, not sticky.
  2. Roll Out the Dough: Divide the dough into small balls. Place a ball between two pieces of parchment paper and roll it out to your desired thickness. For Sun Chips, aim for a thickness similar to a dime.
  3. Cut the Chips: Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the dough into triangles or any shape you desire.
  4. Bake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the chips are crispy and lightly golden. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.

Making the Seasoning:

  1. Combine Seasoning Ingredients: In a small bowl, mix together the tomato powder, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, dried parsley, dried basil, and salt.
  2. Apply the Seasoning: While the chips are still warm, lightly spray them with cooking oil or toss them in a bowl with a bit of oil. Sprinkle the spicy garden salsa seasoning over the chips, ensuring an even coat.


  • Let the chips cool down for a few minutes to crisp up further. Serve your homemade Spicy Garden Salsa Sun Chips as a snack, or pair them with your favorite dips for an extra flavor boost.


  • Adjusting Heat: You can modify the amount of cayenne pepper in the seasoning mix to suit your heat preference. Start with less and add more as needed.
  • Storage: Store your homemade chips in an airtight container to keep them crisp for several days.
  • Experiment: Feel free to adjust the seasoning blend to match your taste or try adding other spices for a different flavor profile.

Enjoy your homemade Spicy Garden Salsa Sun Chips as a deliciously seasoned and satisfyingly crunchy snack that’s perfect for any occasion!
