Ready In:




  • With a pastry brush, paint a very light coating of oil on one side of each tortilla.
  • Stack the tortillas greased side up in an even pile.
  • With a sharp, heavy knife (or serrated knife) cut the stack in half, then into quarters, then into eighths.
  • Separate the pieces and arrange them greased side up on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  • Toast the chips in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until they are crisp and just beginning to brown lightly; watch them closely so they don't become over baked.

    I sprayed one side each of 2 flour tortillas with cooking spray, cut them into eighths and baked them on a baking sheet that was also sprayed with cooking spray. I baked for 10 minutes at 350 F, but I wasn't sure if they were done, so I let them sit in the warm oven for another 5 minutes. They turned out perfect! Thanks for this easy recipe!

    These are great! Like Anu, I used nonstick cooking spray on them. I also used some jalapeno-flavored seasoning I had on hand and dusted it over the top of the chips before I put them in the oven. They came out tasting like tequila-lime tortilla chips!! (I used flour tortillas, and cooked them till the browned.) We ate them with homemade salsa.

    These were good. I used corn tortillas that had been in the freezer way longer than they should have - just knocked the frost off, brushed with oil and baked - yummy. I served with tortilla soup.

    Great chips! I think I did not let them get crispy enough, since they were slightly soft they were sort of tough. Tip for all of us future chip bakers, let them brown a little...

    I used the 8" corn tortilla's and tossed them with salt as soon as they came out of the oven. They tasted restaurant-quality.

    Doesn't get any easier than this! I used olive oil cooking spray instead of oil and baked about 6 minutes longer since they weren't done at 10 minutes. For our tongues, they definitely need seasoning, so next time I'll add some kosher salt or something. Thanks, Ruth!
