homemade tortilla chips

Posted on March 6th, 2012  |  6 Comments

I want to start a movement.

To take back the kitchen.

To show people it’s not so hard to strap on an apron, grab a knife and create something real, authentic and mighty good.

For sure better than those boxes and bags you’re used to.

And let’s be honest, no apron needed.

Wanna join?

Yes? Okay good!

Let’s start with a treat that takes less than 10 minute: homemade tortilla chips.

Crispy, crunchy, and perfectly salty, tortilla chips. Baked tortilla chips that taste, feel and look like those deep fried ones at the store and your favorite Mexican restaurant. Yeah, baked. But totally without that baked feel.

With flava all their own, enjoy these with or without the salsa, cheese, chili, beans, chicken or guacamole.

Or with. :)

No fancy tools required. Hands will do.

I’ve heard little hands work Magic Fieldswell, plus they’re never to young to spend time with family in the kitchen. :)

Smoked paprika brings flavor and color, but isn’t necessary with garlic, salt and pepper in the mix. You could go the spicy route with cayenne pepper or just stick to traditional salt. Or add cumin. Or add lime. Yeahhh now we’re thinking.

Whichever creation comes, you are assured to know every single ingredient you and you’re loved ones are consuming. You’ve saved money, spent a bit of time and have a delicious snack to share with everyone. Pretty good deal, eh?

Take a step into the kitchen and exit with a bowl full of homemade tortilla chips.

But be warned, you may have to go back and make more. #doublebatch :)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (1 serving – 20 chips)

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika – optional


Cut the tortillas into quarters (or another fun scooping shape.)

Using your hands or a brush, coat the tortillas with the oil.

Sprinkle the tortillas with salt, pepper, garlic and paprika, toss to coat.

Bake at 425 degrees for 6-8 minutes, flip chips and bake for another 2-3 minutes. I used a toaster oven so the oven temp and time may very, I wouldn’t go below 400 or above 450, and keep an eye on them, they will burn.

Let cool for a few minutes.

Enjoy the crunch!

    Will flour tortillas work as well, or do they need to be corn?
