Homemade Tortilla Chips in 15 minutes!

I have always loved warm tortilla chips you can get at Mexican restaurants — especially when you see just a bit of oil on them still, and they taste salty.  I am not sure if Mexican restaurants fry or bake their chips, but I tried this simple recipe and was able to make warm baked tortilla chips.

I just used soft yellow tortillas, salt, and olive oil. ( I am sure canola oil would be good as well).
I cut out the tortillas into triangles.


Brushed them lightly with olive oil. and salted them. ( I like mine rather salty)
I baked them at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes ( check them every few minutes)
Wa la! Here they are! These are excellent! I may never buy bagged chips again!



  1. That is a great idea. I think the last time that I made these I put them on a cookie sheet and they did not crisp up. I will have to try this on a pizza pan. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Those look delicious! I think I will have to try your recipe. I cook it with little difference. Added dairy milk chocolate and creams in middle after 30% baking. So delicious and testy dish.

  4. I might do this for lunch! We just recently started making our own tortillas! Now I have tons! I'm going to pin this on Pinteret for later use! Thanks for posting!


  5. Seriously fantastic! Can't wait to try this. I am OBSESSED with mexican restaurant chips.

  6. Oh yummy! Gonna have to try this!

  7. These look awesome! They would definitely be better than store bought, especially with salsa. They wouldn't break as easily.

  8. Yum! I actually just made some last night and I love them too! I love their crunch!

  9. These recipes look and sound amazing, I recently made pumpkin muffins and my family like it too much. Your recipe sounds really tasty as well! Delicious.

  10. I love your recipes.

  11. I did not realize these were corn tortillas, so I used the flour ones that I have. They are pretty good too, but I can’t wait to try the corn. I have very little money to spend on food and the cost of corn tortillas is much better than the bagged chips. Thanks for this idea!

  13. I think you mean ‘voilà’, not ‘wa la’. But the chips look great!


  15. I don’t even use oil on mine. Corn tortillas take on a whole new flavor when you leave off the oil. They’re more… corny! I know that means salt won’t stick to them but who needs salt? I’ll be dipping them into salsa and it’s plenty flavorful.

  16. They are!

  17. Such a simple recipe! I made a Mexican dish for dinner and realized we didn’t have any corn chips. So I was able to use up some old corn tortillas and make these! They were delish.

  18. What is the tray that you cooked them on? Where did you get? It appears to have hole for heat circulation.

  19. How long will thse keep?
