Cinnamon tortilla chips are one of my favorite snacks to make with a big bowl of fruit salsa. We love to make them when we have some extra tortillas that are a day old. It’s the perfect light and refreshing snack for summer!

Anything with cinnamon and sugar is a win in my book, so it’s no surprise that I love these delicious cinnamon sugar chips. They’re super easy to make and are perfect for using up any leftover tortillas you have sitting in the fridge. They make a great appetizer for summer get-togethers, afternoon snacks or a dessert for taco night.

These would even be super yummy to make dessert nachos. Simply layer the leftovers on a plate, then top with ice cream or whipped cream. Then add fresh fruit on top and maybe even drizzle a little hot fudge on too. YUM!

Only 4 ingredients

  • Flour tortillas
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon

How to make cinnamon chips

  1. Cinnamon sugar. Start by dipping the front and back of each tortilla in melted butter. Then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture, ensuring that each side is well coated.
  2. Slice the chips. Use a pizza cutter to cut each tortilla in half and then cut each half into four pieces. Spread all of the pieces out evenly on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in oven. Bake at 350º F for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes on the pan. Then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Storing

If you have any leftovers, I’d recommend placing them in a brown paper bag and storing at room temperature. The brown bag helps keep the chips crispy. They are best if eaten within 3 days of making.
