Home-Baked Tortilla Chips

This little discovery will change the way you eat nachos forevermore! Honestly, these are incredible! And, best of all, they are much much healthier than the corn ones you buy at the supermarket. Size, shape, flavouring and levels of oil are totally customisable – the world is your gherkin!

You will need: 

Plain or seeded flour tortillas 


A mixture of spices, I like chilli powder, paprika and cumin 

Olive oil

1. Cut up the tortillas with a pair of clean scissors, ideally into triangular shapes as far as possible. 

2. Toss the cut pieces in your chosen mixture of spices and salt.

3. Toss in olive oil and place on baking trays, ideally overlapping as little as possible. 

4. Put in the oven at about 170C for around 10 minutes, but keep checking on them as they get overdone quickly – and that isn’t good!

Serve however you want, but they’re great layered with cheese, melted in the oven, and served with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

  1. We love to make these at home. A pizza cutter works particularily well too – if you wanted an additional option. You can also cut them into tiny strips and they make a great alternative to a crouton top top a salad and are amazing on soups.

    1. I actually made these ones for a salad as a healthier alternative for my chicken Caesar! I’d never thought about using them for soup though that’s a great idea – thanks! I did think about the pizza cutter but I’m not very accurate and would probably double back and make a mess!
