A batch of tortilla chips is always my go-to easy appetizer for literally any occasion. Friends of mine know when they come over, before they even get to say hello there will be a ridiculously large bowl of chips shoved in their face, without fail. Maybe some guac as well if they’re lucky.
Besides how freaking delicious they are, homemade baked tortilla chips are perfect to serve because they’re so easy to make. Like seriously easy. And above all of that, because they are baked and not fried, it means you can eat about 5x as much as you usually would!
Or something along those lines.
So back to the 3 ingredient claim I threw into the works earlier. Yep, standing by my guns here. Just tortilla wraps, oil and seasoning is all you need.
I usually start with the seasoning. Here I’ve used rosemary, garlic powder and salt (you know, just to contradict the 3 ingredient claim I just made).
If you’re after a one hit wonder though salt, chicken salt and smoked paprika all stand their ground pretty well! If you are using something like rosemary though it’s best to crush it up into a powder so it sticks to the chip better.
How to make Homemade Tortilla Chips
1. For so long I used to coat the wraps in oil then add the seasoning. It was only until the other that I thought ‘why do I always make life difficult for myself?’and figured it was easiest to combine the two. You know, work smarter not harder and all that.
2. After that it’s just a job of lightly coating the wraps (both sides) and slicing them into 8.
3. I pop mine on a wire rack as I’ve found it bakes the chip more evenly, that or just make sure you flip them halfway through. Bake at 180c (356f) for approx 5-7 minutes or until golden.
Then it really is just a matter of trying to not faceplant the entire bowl, which is easier said than done.
And really what chips are ever served without a dip? Here’s some of my personal favs
Tortila Chip Dips
The perfect thing about these is they’re so crispy, yet sturdy enough to hold the kilo of dip I like with every bite.
All in all these homemade baked tortilla chips are incredibly delicious, easy to make and perfect for guests. The same delicious taste and texture as your favourite store bought chips, at a fraction of the calories and price.
