Homemade Tortilla Chips

These quick-to bake tortilla chips are so crispy and tasty that you will not miss the oil or the extra calories found in most store-bought varieties.


Yield: 4 servings

Occasion: ,


  • 2 whole-grain tortillas (see notes)
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt, plus more as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with unbleached
  2. parchment paper.
  3. Cut tortillas into “chip”-size portions. Put the cut tortillas, chili powder, and salt in a large bowl. Toss to coat.
  4. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on the prepared sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or just until crisp and edges are slightly browned. Sprinkle with more salt, if desired.


For a gluten-free option, use brown rice tortillas instead of whole-grain tortillas. Flavored tortillas, like spinach or chipotle, work well in this recipe.
