Baked Tortilla Chips

Use leftover tortillas to make crispy baked chips

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade tortilla chips are a great way to use up leftover tortillas (I had some lying around from my lamb tacos) and are so easy to make. Since I bake them, they're much healthier than most store-bought fried versions. Serve them with your favorite salsa or try my recipe for guacamole for a quick and easy appetizer or snack. It's a great finger food to put out when you have your friends over for Sunday football, and any leftovers can be kept in the pantry for several days. My homemade pita chips are another great option and are prepared almost the same way.

Pair Those Chips With One of These Dip Recipes:
- Guacamole
- Queso Fundido
- Charred Tomatillo Salsa

Homemade Tortilla Chips:
  • Cut 6 small corn tortillas into eighths and place on a large baking sheet.
  • Toss with 2 tbsp. canola oil, salt, and your favorite Mexican seasoning blend.
  • Arrange chips in an even layer on the baking sheet, then place in a 400°F oven.
  • Cook the chips for 8-9 minutes, turning once with a spatula.
  • Let chips cool for 10-15 minutes, then serve with salsa or guacamole.
