Homemade Tortilla Chips

Share this Recipe!

We love making our own tortilla chips and the best part is there are so many different ways to make them. You can use different seasonings, different flavor combinations and wind up with a different chip each time.

My teens love them because they are super easy, fun to dip and make a great snack anytime.

Homemade Tortilla Chips

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes


  • 10 Flour Tortillas, or Homemade Flour Tortillas
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 2 Tbs. melted butter or some olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic salt and ground cumin.
  2. Brush butter or olive oil on one side of each flour tortilla.
  3. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over each flour tortilla. If you desire more flavoring per tortilla double the seasoning ahead of time.
  4. Cut each flour tortilla into 8 wedges (like you’re cutting a pizza).
  5. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet or pan and place in the oven at 400 degrees for at 6-8 minutes. Six minutes usually makes a softer, chewier chip. Eight minutes makes a crispy chip (but be careful because they burn easily).
  6. Remove from the oven and dump in a bowl. Serve with sour cream, salsa or guacamole.

But WAIT!!

We have a different batch in the oven right now.

We did the butter on the flour tortilla and then sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon and sugar over the chips. HEAVEN!! (and my house smells great!)

So think about it – you can sprinkle any sort of seasoning you want. You could make them more like Dorito’s brand chips by sprinkling some Taco seasoning on them. The possibilities are endless.

Hello, I am happy to find your site and follow your post on facebook. I also blog but I blog about savings, coupons and on and on. I have been on my new site for less than two months but have been blogging for a year this august. In thaat time I have tried to post a recipe a week since I love to cook and have done the cooking at my house for nearly 20 years. But to the point, do ypu are would you be intressted in providing recipes as guest post on my site which would save me the time of finding recipes to post. I have looked over a couple of your post and I like the personal touch you add to your recipes, as if you are on a cooking show and are carring on a conversation with the readers. My blog is a bit different than most in that I post what I am thinking reguardless of what some people mat think. Nothing bad,just my opinions. I try to seperate them by keeping then in the "thoughts" catagory so people understand what they are. Check me out at and let me know what you think. thanks
