How to Bake Tortilla Chips
PREP. Preheat oven to 350°F.
CUT. Cut each tortilla into 6 triangle shaped wedges.
SPRAY. Place the tortilla wedges in a single layer onto a cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Spray or brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
BAKE. Bake for about 6 minutes, then use tongs to turn wedges over – spray again with olive oil spray and sprinkle with salt and bake an additional 6 or so minutes.
SEASON & SERVE. Sprinkle with more salt before serving.
Seasoning: One of the pros to making baked tortilla chips at home is you have more control over the finished product. If you like less salt, then add only a bit of salt. If you really love salty chips, then add a general sprinkle. You can also use other seasonings such as garlic salt, lemon salt, or chili powder.
Baking note: The thickness and size of the tortillas can affect the bake time. Watch carefully and adjust the bake time as needed.
Serving & Storing
Serve with Favorite salsa and dips:
Storage: The baked tortilla chips will easily last 3-4 days in an airtight container. They can be eaten after as well you may just notice them turning a bit stale. If the chips start to get soft simply place them back in the oven 375°F until crisp again.
