HOMEMADE BAKED TORTILLA CHIPS

You are going to love how easy these Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips are to make. I make these often for my family when I have extra tortillas to use up. What I love most about this recipe is that the chips are baked, not fried creating a slightly healthier chip. 

One of my favorite snacks is chips and salsa. I like make my own salsa, especially in the summer months. It is easy to do and I love being able to control the ingredients that go in to it. This Restaurant Style Salsa, Avocado Tomatillo Salsa and this Avocado Tomatillo Salsa are my go-to recipes. 

I also love using homemade tortilla chips in my nacho recipes like these Beef Nachos or as a dipper for this delicious Beef Taco Dip

HOW DO YOU MAKE TORTILLA CHIPS FROM SCRATCH?

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 400F. Whisk together the oil, garlic powder, chili powder, and salt in a large bowl. Use your hands to very gently toss in the corn tortilla wedges to coat.

STEP 2

Arrange the tortilla wedges on a large baking sheet (a little bit of overlap is ok, but try to spread them out in a single layer if possible).

STEP 3

HOW DO I STORE MY TORTILLA CHIPS?

If you don’t store your chips in a tightly sealed container your chips will go stale quickly. Store in a covered container for up to 5 days at room temperature.

WHAT ARE SOME WAYS I CAN SEASON MY CHIPS?

You can go as basic and salt when seasoning your chips or you can get crazy and try different combinations. Here are some I like:

  • I love smoky flavors. If you do too try smoky chili powder, cumin and lime zest. 
  • Try sprinkling your favorite rub on the chips. Rubs that you typically use for meats tend to have a variety of really good flavors in them that would pair nicely on chips. Sometimes rubs can have add salt so you may want to check before adding salt yourself. 
  • If you like spicy try sprinkling cayenne red pepper on your chips or even crushed red pepper.

WHAT CAN I USE MY HOMEMADE CHIPS FOR?

Chips are the best dippers for so many things in my opinion. Here are some ways I like to use them!

SOUPS & CHILI: When I eat soup and chili I like to have a bowl of chips to help scoop it up. Try this Instant Pot Turkey Chili, Instant Pot Pork Chili, Vegetarian Chili or this Beef Chili. You could also use the chips as a topping in this Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup or this Mexican Vegetable Soup.

DIPS: Chips made a great addition to dips. Salsa is an obvious go-to but I also like things like hummus or baba ghanoush

 NACHOS: When I make nachos I like to use the best chips I can get my hands on. These homemade chips work great in these Southwestern Salmon Nachos or these Easy Chicken Nachos

GUACAMOLE: Another favorite in my house is guacamole like this Pomegranate Guacamole or this Homemade Mexican Guacamole.
