This homemade tortilla chip recipe is one I’ve had in my recipe files for years. These baked chips are made with tortillas, olive oil (or oil spray), and salt.

I make them all the time to serve with a big bowl of chili or to go with a bowl of soup. With the Super Bowl coming up, this small batch of baked tortilla chips are perfect to enjoy with your favorite dip while watching the game.

With this easy baked tortilla chips recipe you can make as many or as few tortilla chips as you would like. Feel free to use flour tortillas, corn tortillas, or even whole wheat tortillas. If you would like to make low carb tortilla chips, just use low carb tortillas.

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

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.
