Homemade Tortilla Chips Recipe

Homemade Tortilla Chips
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes
  • Cook time: 10 Minutes
  • Total time: 15 Minutes
  • Serves: 2


  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • salt


  1. Preheat an oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Firstly brush both sides of the tortillas with oil.
  3. Cut the tortillas into sixths. You can stack them in a pile to speed up this process.
  4. Now separate the tortillas, and place them as a single layer on a roasting tray. Don’t let them overlap; otherwise, you will end up with soggy chips.
  5. Place the oven tray into the preheated oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until nicely crisp and golden brown.
  6. Serve & Enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • It is best to use plain tortillas for the ideal results; however, you can try out other variations if you would like to.
  • While I recommend cutting the tortillas into sixths, you can cut them into eighths for smaller chips.
  • You can use a different type of oil, such as olive oil, spray oil, vegetable oil, peanut oil, or even bacon fat. Be aware that each oil will change the flavor and outcome of the recipe.
  • You can use just regular table salt, or you can go a bit fancier and use ground sea salt. Much like the oil, this will change the flavor of the overall recipe.
  • If you have leftover tortillas from making some chicken enchiladas or fajitas, then this a great way to use them up.
  • You can use corn tortillas if you prefer them over the flour tortillas.
