Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 8" Corn Tortilla Wraps
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt, or to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180c (365f). 
  • Combine oil & salt, then brush each side or your tortillas. Stack them, then slice into 8.
  • Evenly spread out on a large oven tray & bake in the oven for 5-6mins, or until they begin to brown around the edges. Take out, flip and pop back in the oven for another 4-8mins or until golden. Be very vigilant with these, they go from perfect to burnt in no time. In my experience different brands of tortillas result in slightly different cooking times.
  • Take out the oven and rest on a wire rack to cool. As they cool, they will begin to crisp a little more.

Notes

a) Flour Tortillas - You can use flour tortillas, they'll still come out great BUT just ever-so-slightly less crispy and you'll miss out on that classic corn chip taste.
b) Cooking Times - These chips will go from perfect to burnt in a very short space of time, just be vigilant to ensure they don't overcook. With the same token, do cook longer than instructed if you need to, just don't turn up the heat.
c) Space them out - It's important to space them out so they don't steam. Use 2 or more trays if you have to.
d) Air Bubbles - If you notice air bubbles forming in the chips as they bake, stab once with a knife (and then stab the remaining ones before they go in the oven). This is largely dependent on the type of tortilla, but it's just air trying to escape the chips.
e) Cooling - Leaving them to cool is important. They'll come out the oven more on the softer side but as they cool they become beautifully crunchy.
f) Calories - Based on sharing between 8 people.
