Perfect Baked Tortilla Chips
Crispy, crunchy, oh-so-good with all the dips, and made guilt-free. What’s not to love about baked tortilla chips?
If you’ve never made homemade baked tortilla chips, this is your sign to try it!
If you have, welcome to another tasty excuse to do so!
Today, I’m sharing an unbelievably easy and delicious oven baked recipe for tortilla chips—that you can make with corn tortillas, flour tortillas, or even whole wheat tortillas. Let’s go!
Baked Tortilla Chips Ingredients
Crispy edges, crunchy centers, and lightly buttery flavor with just the right amount of salt—these homemade tortilla chips are deliciously made with just 3 ingredients!
- Tortillas: For this recipe, I used flour tortillas, but I’ve used whole wheat in the past. You can also try corn tortillas for baked corn tortilla chips!
- Salt: I like freshly ground salt for the tasty, uneven bits (larger bits of salt are always a surprise yummy treat lol).
- Oil: my favorite oil to use in this recipe is extra virgin olive oil, but you can use avocado oil, canola oil, etc.
How to Bake Tortilla Chips
Learn how to make baked tortilla chips the easy way! Remember, my exact ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card further down this post.
Here is my step-by-step photo tutorial. Enjoy!
First, preheat the oven to 350°F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly greased foil.
Second, grab your tortillas of choice and stack them neatly on a cutting board.
While keeping the stack intact, slice downward, making chip-shaped pieces.
I like to have a bit of fun here and make unique shapes, but you can do triangles for classic baked tortilla chips.
Next, begin spreading the unbaked tortilla chips in a single layer across the baking sheet.
Be sure to leave just a bit of breathing room for each chip, as they’ll need air to crisp up.
Dip a silicone cooking brush into oil, then scrape off excess on the oil bowl.
Next, brush oil evenly across each chip, in a thin layer.
Sprinkle with salt.
Next, flip all of the chips and brush the uncoated side evenly. Add more salt if desired.
Then, bake for about 10 minutes, flip the chips over, and bake again for 4 more minutes.
Once fully baked, remove baking sheet from oven and add more salt if needed.
Then, allow to cool and enjoy the best baked tortilla chips!

Fancy a Drink, Anyone?
These baked tortilla chips are super easy to store! Simply cool tortilla chips completely, then store in an airtight container.
Remember to keep the container away from heat sources or direct sunlight, which could spoil the chips.
