Make Your Own Tortilla Chips

I always have flour tortillas in the house because I we have a tendency to make cheese quesadillas like they were grilled cheese sandwiches. 
They came in handy the other day when I needed chips for a dip I purchased and didn't want to head back to the store. 

I wasn't sure how to make my own but I had an idea, and it worked.

  • I grabbed a stack of about six or eight four tortillas
  • cut them in triangles
  • placed them in a single layer on a cookie sheet
  • sprayed them with olive oil spray
  • sprinkled a little salt on them
  • heated the oven to 350 degrees
  • and baked them for 15 minutes.
Wahlah! Just like that. I have the perfect chips to use in my spinach artichoke dip.

We had them all eat in no time and I had to make another batch.
They had a taste equivalent to a pita chip or cracker but the way they disappeared, you would think I made chocolate chip cookies.

You can enjoy them with dip or for a sweeter side, while they are still warm, roll in a cinnamon/ sugar mixture and drizzle with honey to make a Mexican dessert known as Sopapillas.

Personally, I think I will continue doing chips like this. They are a lot cheaper and healthier...Ok, maybe they are not any healthier but I can keep thinking that.


  1. You are good. I would never have thought of making tortillas chips.==== They do look like the 'real thing', Okay, I guess they are the real thing and youdone good. Spinach dip sounds good!

  2. I think most Mexican dishes we commonly know started with little twists like that.

  3. gosh girl...this isn't the same profile pic of yesterday is it,? i like this one, too..:)

    I love both flour and corn tortillas made into chips. Another way for Sopapillas, you can cut your large flour tortilla into 4's...drop one at a time into hot oil and hold (with a fork) it under the oil until it puffs up nice and high...these are to die for with honey butter.

  4. I love tortilla chips!
    ...a dip and a good movie and ???...
