How to Make Homemade Tortilla Chips

You only need four ingredients, a few simple steps, and about half an hour in order to make these crispy cheesy flavored chips!

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 425°F and spray your baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Cut tortillas into wedges, and then place them on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle the tortillas with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
  4. Bake for about 10-15 minutes (until crispy). You can broil for a couple of minutes if you want them EXTRA crispy.

Tips for making Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

  • We love BAKED Tortilla Chips using flour tortillas, but you can also fry your homemade tortilla chips.
  • You can use corn or flour tortillas, although we wrote this recipe with flour tortillas
  • QUICK TIP: Using Corn Tortillas can make this a Gluten Free Recipe!
  • If frying, you can sprinkle on your seasoning after removing from the oil, before the hot chips have dried.
  • If baking, we recommend spraying all the tortilla triangles with nonstick olive oil spray, sprinkling with your seasonings (in this case garlic salt and shredded parmesan) and then baking until crisp.

These Baked Tortilla Chips are SO EASY and use only 4 INGREDIENTS. This is a fool-proof way to have the ultimate tailgate party or Cinco de Mayo celebration!

Are Homemade Tortilla Chips good for you?

Typically, fried tortilla chips are pretty high in fat…because you’re frying in oil. These Baked Tortilla Chips have under 100 calories per serving and are still crispy and delicious! I’m a big fan and I hope you love them too.

How do you make Nachos in the oven?

I LOVE to bake nachos! You can start with this Homemade Tortilla Chip Recipe and then make Baked Nachos super easily. They’re the BEST! We love these Baked Chicken Nachos on a Sheet Pan and also these Baked Foil Packet Nachos! Both are awesome and easy recipes.
