Baked Tortilla Chips - so easy, much healthier and great for dipping or making nachos.

Homemade and Fabulous

Y’all, I just have to share how we make our own Baked Tortilla Chips most of the time. It’s so easy, it’s almost comical I’m sharing the recipe, but I get asked all the time how I make them, so I think it’s due time I share here on the blog. Seriously, so so easy and they turn out perfect every time. Super crunchy, a little salty and so much healthier than fried tortilla chips.

Homemade Chips Make the Best Nachos

They are perfect for dipping in any kind of dip and make for the best nachos. We very rarely buy chips anymore because we love this homemade tortilla chips recipe so much! We get fresh made tortillas from a local market and have made these homemade chips with flour, multigrain and whole wheat tortillas. They turn out great every time!

How to Make Baked Tortilla Chips

All you need are some flour tortillas, cooking spray and a little sea salt or kosher salt. And a baking sheet and oven, of course. Start by cutting each tortilla into 8 equal wedges. I usually cut 3-4 tortillas at a time with a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

Then you’ll just spread them out evenly in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray before sprinkling with a pinch of kosher or sea salt.

Bake at 400°F for about 10-12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Cooking time might vary, so keep an eye on them. The chips should be crisp and starting to turn light brown when done.

Let them rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before serving.

That’s all there is to it! They keep great for several days stored in a resealable baggie. We love serving them with all kinds of dips and especially love using them to make sheet pan nachos.

Easy baked tortilla chips that are healthier and great for dipping or making nachos.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • canola cooking spray
  • sea salt or kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cut each tortilla into 8 equal wedges with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. Arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Spray the wedges with cooking spray and sprinkle each one with a little sea salt or kosher salt.
  3. Bake chips on the top rack of the oven for 10-12 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through, until chips are crispy and starting to turn light brown in spots. Oven temperatures vary so if your chips are crispy enough halfway through the baking time, go ahead and remove them.
  4. Remove from oven and let chips rest on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before serving. Repeat with remaining wedges or bake them on multiple baking sheets at the same time, rotating which shelf the baking sheets are on halfway through baking time as well.

Notes

Store leftover chips in a resealable baggie for 4-5 days.

  1. […] saw a recipe for Baked Tortilla Chips on one of my favorite favorite blogs, The Baker Mama. Maegan has SO many amazing recipes and also the most adorable family. She was a favorite before I […]

  2. Not sure what happened here but I burnt the heck out of two batches of chips at only 5minutes into the baking time. With the second batch, I moved the rack from top to the middle of the oven and they still burnt ( black) at 4 minutes into the baking time. Very disappointed.

    1. Hi Tammy! So sorry to hear this. Are you sure your oven was set to 400? Sounds like your broiler might have been on if they were black after just 4 minutes. What kind of tortillas are you using? Maybe try reducing your oven temperature next time and checking on them every few minutes. Hope this helps.

    2. My first two batches I went 8 to 10 minutes on the first batch and it got very dark got dark. Not really black but definitely Brown. So I made the next two matches and I only cook time 5 minutes pull them out they look great. I’m on my third or fourth bass right now I don’t know LOL. I have several packages of tortillas but no tortilla chips that’s why I chose to try it this way. Would definitely only took these five minutes at the most

  5. Thanks for this! I was trying to find out if I could make them with flour tortillas and you answered my question!

  6. I definitely burnt my first batch in just a few minutes at 400 on the top rack. No big deal! Moved the rack back to the center and the second batch were golden brown in 3-4 minutes at 400. Tasty!

  7. We’re eating low carb and miss chips so much. I made this recipe with some low carb tortillas and they were perfect for our holiday smorgasbord.

  8. Based on all comments and my experience,bake only at 5 minutes.
    The recommended time is way offfffff – you’ll end up with crumbs of brown dust.

    1. Hi Helen! What kind of tortillas did you use? Did you rotate the pan halfway through the baking time? If so, you should have noticed that they were already baked. If you used a thinner or corn tortilla, they will bake faster. Hope this helps and that you’re able to try them again with success because they are so good!

  9. Will never buy bagged tortillas again. These are amazing. Did 400 @9 minutes, in my oven needs 8 minutes. The light taste of sea salt is outstanding. Thank you for a great recipe

  10. They burned after 4 minutes. Oven was set at 400 per instruction. I would lower the temperature or just use the toaster.

    1. Did you use flour tortillas? I would recommend checking your oven temperature to make sure it is reading correctly. We make these almost every week and they always take about 10 minutes.

    1. Hi Sarah! It definitely depends on the thickness of the flour tortillas you use. That’s why it’s important to rotate the pan halfway through the baking time and check them. We use a thicker tortilla so ours take closer to 12 minutes.
