Baked Corn Tortilla Chips


This weekend it was freezing cold here, couldn’t go out anywhere. For the chill temperature felt like having some crispy snack. When I was thinking what to do, many recipes came to my mind like Baked Pakoda, baked bonda, baked bread roll, baked bread Tikki but all those recipes demanded some work, lazy me was thinking of some quick snack without much work. Hubby suggested Microwave potato chips but I was out of potatoes, immediately Corn tortilla  in kitchen pulled my attention. Got them for Quesadilla, had some 9 tortilla left, so decided to do tortilla chip. These chips is great way to finish your leftover tortilla


Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

Preparation time : 4 mins | Baking time : 15 mins


Corn Tortilla – 9

Oil  – 1 tbsp

Salt – as needed

Basil – 1/4 tsp (Optional)



  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  • Stack tortillas one on top of the other and cut them into 2,4,8

tortilla chips

  • Put them in a mixing bowl add oil, salt and basil; gently toss them well  some traingles lost their shape, oh nooooo, but who cares as long as it tastes good 🙂


  • Bake for 14 – 18 mins, turning them in between (after 7/8 minutes) or until chips are starting to get crispy and slightly golden brown at the edges (check every 1-2 minutes after 14 mins)
  • Remove from oven and let it cool for 5 -10 mins before serving, in order to let them fully crisp. Serve it with Guacamole/ Salsa/ cheese dip (We just finished it with an yummy dip)



My Notes:

  • Instead of mixing them in bowl, can arrange in baking tray brush them with oil and sprinkle salt
  • Can add spices of your choice like chilli powder, cumin powder,coriander powder, chat masala, onion powder, garlic powder , cayenne pepper, paprika, etc
  • Can add grated cheese like mozerralla cheese, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese on the top of tortilla

    Never made my own tortilla chips, hated the idea of frying them. Now I know I can bake them and they are much more healthful. Love it!

    I have a small doubt.. when you bake these chips, will there be enough oil? Does it taste similar to the deep fried traditional ones?
