These homemade tortilla chips take a little extra time to make, but I promise you that the extra effort is worth it!  This is a recipe that kids can help make!   I have always loved the freshly-made salty, oily, and warm tortilla chips you get from restaurants.

These chips taste amazing on their own.  You can also make them into


Dunk them in your favorite southwestern dips

sprinkle them over chili and soups.

All you need are three simple ingredients

Corn tortillas

Sea salt

Canola Oil – You can use another oil.  I would stick to an oil with a high smoke point. 

All you need to do is :

Preheat oven to 350 degrees f

Cut corn tortilla into triangles

brush the tortilla chips with olive oil

sprinkle them with sea salt.

Bake them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.  Please pay attention to them while they are cooking. Once they’re done cooking, they will overcook fast. 

Remove them from the oven.


I suggest only making enough that you plan on eating.  You can save the leftovers, but they’re the best right when you remove them from the oven.

I encourage you to get adventurous with the toppings!  You could try

Everything but the Elote seasoning

Chili-Lime seasoning

Cinnamon and sugar

Ranch Seasoning

  1. How long will thse keep?

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

  3. 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.

  4. They are!

  5. 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.


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

  9. 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!

  10. I love your recipes.

  11. 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.

  19. 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!
