How to use them

Use these homemade tortilla chips for;

  • dips – like guacamole, salsa, bean dip, etc.
  • nachos
  • snacking – they are so much better for you than potato chips
  • chilaquiles

Pro tips

  • To store chips, place in an air tight container. Store on counter, or closet.
  • Can be made a day before they are needed.
  • To reheat, place in warm oven and bake for about 5 minutes, or serve cold.
  • Use high quality, thick tortillas, for the best results. Cheaper varieties are not as good.

    I like the tip of using a spraying bottle for the oil! So much easier and less oil in the chips. I don’t have an air fryer but I’m making these in the oven!

    1. You can totally make them in the oven. They will take longer, obviously. I would also place them on a rack. Not directly on a cooking sheet. That way the heat will circulate better! Thanks Paula!
