Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips Recipe
One of the greatest joys of cooking is discovering easy ways to make certain staple grocery items at home.
Case in point: Homemade tortilla chips.
If you’ve never made homemade tortilla chips before, you’re missing out. I actually prefer them over most store-bought tortilla chips.
Although chips can be made with flour tortillas, I think the corn tortilla chips are tastier. They are super crisp, hold up to heavy dips – and best of all, they’re baked, not fried. You can add your own spices to these chips, or just sprinkle on a bit of sea salt or lime juice.
Next time you’re about to throw out old corn tortillas, consider making this cheap recipe. It couldn’t be easier. Serve them with guacamole, salsa or another dip.
What To Do With Your Tortilla Chips

Up For a Challenge?
Try making your own homemade tortilla shells at home.
- Corn tortilla shells
- Olive oil
- Fine grain sea salt
- Your favorite spice blend (I used The Pampered Chef's Chipotle Rub. Try a Mexican seasoning blend, garlic powder, or cayenne pepper.)
- Preheat oven to 400F. Brush both sides of desired number of corn tortillas lightly with olive oil. Once all tortilla shells are coated, cut into 10 evenly sized triangles. Lay on a large baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and other spices, if desired.
- Bake for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, or until tortilla chips are lightly browned and crisp.
