    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!

    How to make tortilla chips

    1. Using kitchen scissors or a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla into 6 to 8 triangles.
    2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the tortillas and cook one minute per side, or until lightly browned.
    3. Remove chips with tongs and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle salt on top of the chips immediately and allow to cool.

    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!
