Chips may be a misnomer for this recipe. This is an easy way to crisp your corn tortillas and you get better results than in a conventional oven. Crispy tortillas are desirable for tostadas or chips.


  1. Leave tortillas whole, cut in half or quarter.
  2. Place in a single layer on a microwave safe dish; microwave for 1 minute.
  3. Turn tortillas over (will be moist on the underside) and microwave 1 minute more (they should be brown and crispy).
  4. If not, turn over and microwave in 30 second; repeat as needed until done.
  5. Let them sit for a minute and they become more crispy.
