How To Make Tortilla Chips

To make a small batch of homemade tortilla chips, I use three flour tortillas.

Step 1

Stack the tortillas in one pile and using a sharp knife, cut into 6 equal sized wedges.

Step 2

Stack the tortillas in one pile and using a sharp knife, cut into 6 equal sized wedges.

Arrange the tortilla wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush both sides of each tortilla wedge with olive oil and place back on the baking sheet. Try not to let the tortilla wedges overlap, otherwise they won't crisp.

Pro Tip: You can also use an oil spray instead of the olive oil. Personally, I like the taste and texture of the chips that have been brushed with oil better and find them to be crisper.

Sprinkle a pinch or two of salt over the tops of the tortilla wedges.

Step 3

Place the tray in the oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes. At around the 4 minute mark, rotate the tray so that the tortilla wedges brown evenly.

The chips are done when they are dry and very lightly browned.

Step 4

Remove the tray from the oven. When cool enough to handle, remove the tortilla chips from the tray and enjoy. If you are not eating them all right away, they can be stored in an airtight container or zip topped bag.
