Oh my goodness! These homemade Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips are one of my favorite snacks and sides. I mostly eat these as a scoop for the Green Goddess Salad, Super Easy Salsa, Guacamole, Garlic Hummus, and Refried Beans. But I'll also add them as a topping for 7-Minute Black Bean Soup. These corn tortilla chips are yummy, provide a nice crunchy texture, and are super easy to make in the oven. This Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips recipe is a much healthier and fresher alternative to the store-bought chips loaded with salt and oil.

How to Make Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips
If using Ezekiel brand, be sure to thaw the corn tortillas in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours before you're ready to bake them. You can thaw them on the counter, but they might curl up on you.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (or 175°C).
- Stack and cut refrigerated or room temperature corn tortillas in half. Continue to cut into triangles so it yields either 4 or 6 chips per tortilla.
- Spread the tortillas onto a shallow baking sheet.
- Pop in the oven at 350°F (or 175°C) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until crispy. Be sure to check on them about 7 minutes in to see if they need to come out sooner or stay in longer.
- When chips are done, remove from the oven and allow them to sit out for at least five minutes before serving.
Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, they will burn if you leave them in too long or if the temperature is too high. So, be sure to set a timer, make sure the oven is set at the correct temperature, and check them around 7 minutes in.
