Homemade tortilla chips can be made with either flour tortilla or corn tortilla. You might find us in the UK calling it crisps. Yeah, cos crisps sound better like chips right! These chips are so easy to make, and you can pair them with any dip or salsa of choice. I have paired mine with one of UK’s favourite dips, sour cream and chive dip

This recipe is a great way to make use of any leftover flour tortilla. With a family of four, it means we are usually left with either 4 or 2 flour tortilla after having over favourite chicken wraps or chicken shawarma. Also, when we do this, we reduce food waste. I try as much as possible to avoid food waste.  Often time, you’ll find me making some smoothie or having fruits frozen because my eldest daughter likes watching fruits sit in the fruit bowl but not eating them. lol

Back to my healthy homemade flour tortilla chips, they can be baked or fried. Use any seasoning blend of choice for different flavours or keep it simple with salt and pepper. My chips are seasoned with salt and minced garlic

How to make baked flour tortilla chips from scratch

Preheat the oven at 180⁰C/375F  

Line a baking tray with a parchment paper

Add vegetable oil, minced garlic and salt into a small bowl and mix to combine

Using a pastry brush, brush both sides of the tortilla with the garlic oil mixture. Then stack them on top of one another as you’ve oiled both sides.

With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the flour tortilla into equal wedges or triangles. Arrange tortilla wedges on the lined baking tray in a single layer.

Bake the chips for 10 to 12 minutes or until crispy and golden. I used 2 baking trays for the portion of chips I made rotating them once in-between baking for even cooking. If you are unable to do this, repeat the process of baking the chips in portions until all flour tortilla wedges are exhausted.

Leave the chips to cool before serving.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I would be surprise if they last that long though
