Tortilla Chips Recipe

One of my favorite snacks is chips and salsa. I could eat it all day, every day! So what’s a girl to do when she’s out of  tortilla chips and finds a stash of tortillas? Make them, of course! These came out so light, airy and crispy.

These homemade tortilla chips, made with flour tortillas, are a wonderful addition to any Mexican dish. They can be made on the stove top or baked in the oven for a lighter chip. Super easy and absolutely delicious. You’ll be making this tortilla chips recipe over and over again!

Baked Tortilla Chips

To make baked tortilla chips, preheat the oven to 350°F. Brush each side of the tortilla with oil and then place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. These baked tortilla chips are a little lighter and still super crispy!

Homemade Tortilla Strips

To turn these into tortilla strips, just cut the tortilla into 1/2 x 2-inch strips and then cook for about 30 seconds per side. These tortilla strips make the perfect, crunchy addition to any soup or salad! I especially like them on my easy fajita salad recipe and my chicken tortilla soup.

Decorative tips for homemade tortilla chips

Looking for a fun way to serve chips at a party? All you’ll need is a brown paper lunch bag. Then for a fun decorative touch, zig zag scissors and a stamp.

All I did was cut 2 inches off the top of the bag with the decorative scissors. Then I added a fun stamp to the front of the bag. You could also tie it with ribbon, jute or twine. Easy peasy and inexpensive! Two things I love!
