Homemade oven baked tortilla chips are an easy and healthy snack. Their prep only takes minutes and so does the baking. They go so well with all sorts of dips!
How to make oven baked tortilla chips
Stack the tortillas on top of each other. Cut them into quarters and each quarter into thirds. This way, you will end up with 48 chips which should be enough for about 6-8 people.
Place them onto a large baking tray lined with baking parchment. Try to spread them around so that they are not stack on top of each other much. Then, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Bake them in a preheated oven until they turn nice golden brown on the edges or until they look to your liking.
Just note that they go very quickly from done to burnt. They can be ready in 6-10 minutes so keep an eye on them.
They can also be deep-fried, if that’s what you prefer. I tried it once but found them way too oily to our liking. Also, if you decide to fry them, make sure not to burn them as the same as these oven baked tortilla chips, they go very quickly from being done to being burnt.
