Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips Recipe:

Recipe Type: Appetizer, Savory Snack Food, Corn Tortillas, Flour Tortillas
Yields: makes many
Prep time: 20 min
Bake time: 7 min


Flour tortillas, corn tortillas, and/or wheat tortillas*
Nonstick cooking spray (I like to use the olive oil spray)
Seasoning of your choice (optional)**

* I like to use a mixture of different types of tortillas

** Salt, seasoning salt, garlic salt, paprika, chili powder, or cayenne pepper. I usually make my chips without any seasoning.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lay the tortillas out on a cutting board, spray with the nonstick olive oil spray on both sides. If using a seasoning, sprinkle on both sides now.

Stack the tortillas in piles of eight (8) tortillas. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut through the pile of tortillas, cutting into 4 equal triangles.

Arrange tortilla triangles in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake for approximately 6 to 7 minutes until crisp and the edges start to curl and turn lightly brown. Watch the chips carefully after 5 minutes, as they can burn easily.


Once the chips are done, remove from the oven to cool. Chips will continue to crisp as they cool.
