HOW TO MAKE CHIPS WITH TORTILLAS 

You are going to love how easy these homemade tortilla chips are. 

I make these often for my family when I have extra tortillas to use up in the fridge.

If you have been wondering how to make chips with tortillas this is the recipe for you. 

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.

This Restaurant Style Salsa, Avocado Tomatillo Salsa and this Avocado Tomatillo Salsa are my go-to recipes.

Of course you could also pair these chips with this Easy Guacamole Recipe. 

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

WHAT KIND OF TORTILLAS SHOULD I USE?

I like to use smaller corn tortillas for this recipe {6 inch works nicely}.

You can use either white or yellow corn tortillas. You can also use flour tortillas but the baking time may vary.

STEP 3

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).

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.

WAYS TO MODIFY THESE CHIPS

  • SMOKY FLAVORS: I love smoky flavors. If you do too try smoky chili powder, cumin and lime zest. 
  • SPICE RUB: 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. 
  • SPICY: If you like spicy try sprinkling cayenne red pepper on your chips or even crushed red pepper. 
  • CITRUS: Lime juice is a nice addition to the flavor of chips. I would add 1 tablespoons of lime juice over the finished chips. The easiest thing to do is lightly squeeze the lime over the chips. Just remember you will lose some of the crispiness of the chips with too much lime juice.

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.
