What Do I Need to Make Baked Tortilla Chips?
- Flour tortillas
- canola cooking spray
- sea salt or kosher salt
- Large baking sheet
How to Make Baked Tortilla Chips
All you need are some flour tortillas, cooking spray and a little sea salt or kosher salt.
- Preheat the oven to 400.
- Cut 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 the tortilla wedges out evenly in a single layer on a lightly greased large 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 top of 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.

Easy baked tortilla chips that are healthier and great for dipping or making nachos.
- 8 flour tortillas
- canola cooking spray
- sea salt or kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Store leftover chips in a resealable baggie for 4-5 days.
They burned after 4 minutes. Oven was set at 400 per instruction. I would lower the temperature or just use the toaster.
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.
Agreed… mine were black by the 5 minute mark… oven at 250 for 6 minutes and they’re perfect!
Thanks for sharing! Oven temperatures and thickness of tortilla brands certainly vary so I definitely recommend checking them halfway through the baking time. Glad you enjoyed!
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
The oven temp/time on this recipe is WAY off! Mine were charred before 10 min.
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!
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.
I cooked “low carb flour tortillas” at 400F for a full 10 minutes, and they were just light-med browned on the corners. People’s different results probably have to do with electric versus gas or just manufacture of oven. I thought the result was good but maybe it was because they were low carb I would need a lot of salsa on my chip to hide the odd (stinky?) taste of the tortilla. Still a win!
Do I use regular bake or convection
Hi Debbie! I use regular baking mode when I make them.
Can you use grain free?
Yes! Grain-free chips would bake faster, so watch them closely and reduce baking time. Enjoy!
Thank you! Excellent recipe.
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.
I did the same thing Lydia and they are really good a new world has open time for nachos kkkkk
Definitely burnt in 10min at 400. 2nd batch came out good at 350 for 7mins
Tried this cause I’m a big tortilla chip person made this and I’m in Love thanks
