My tortilla chips are quick and easy to make from everyday packet wraps. Crispy, tasty and so much healthier than the packet version, they are vegan-friendly and perfect with your favourite dips.
Homemade Tortilla Chips
I’m a dipaphile. We love them as an informal first course for a cosy supper at home. I often rustle up a bowlful of guacamole, hummus, salsa, or a bean-based dip and serve it with something suitable to scoop it up. There are many choices: vegetable crudités, a packet of crisps, Melba toast – or these homemade tortilla chips, which are easy to make from bought wraps.
When it’s just us, I admit that we have been known to commit the ultimate dipping crime: a (gasp!) double dip. In our defence, we do flip our chip end for end, and dip the unbitten end. I’m sure purists would still be still horrified.
This recipe is very easy to make and perfect with a spicy guacamole or hearty hummus. Homemade tortilla chips (or tortilla crisps) are much healthier than the packet ones, as they are baked rather than fried.
Additionally, you can control the amount of salt, and even the greatest salt fiend is unlikely to douse them in the quantity found in the shop-bought variety. In short, they are better for your blood pressure, better for serving to children and all-round nicer.
How to Make Tortilla Chips
Step 1 – Place a pizza stone or baking tray in the oven. Preheat to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7.
Step 2 – Brush the wrap with olive oil. Cut it into strips.
Step 3 – Cut the strips into triangles.
Step 4 – Arrange on a pizza stone, or baking tray
Step 5 – Bake for about 10 minutes until golden and crisp. Keep a close eye on them, as they can become overcooked quite quickly.
Step 6 – Once they’re done, remove from the oven, allow to cool and serve with your favourite dip.
Hints, Tips & Variations for Homemade Tortilla Chips
- The one thing you do have to be careful about with these homemade tortilla chips is timing. The difference between underdone and overdone is tight. When testing this recipe, we burnt a couple of batches by not being sufficiently attentive to the oven. Don’t turn your back, even for a second. If you do, they’re sure to burn! Experiment to find out exactly how long they take in your oven, and keep a close eye on them after about eight minutes.
- For the spices, I’ve tried cumin, chilli, harissa or celery salt but I don’t really have a favourite, going with how I’m feeling at the time, and what works best for the dip I’m serving. I’m sure there are plenty of others that would work just as well. Experiment!

Homemade tortilla chips are the best! One tortilla would NOT be enough for me, hehe.
Great idea – thanks for that. I too love my dips.

There are times when I would kill for a good dip and something nice and crispy to dip into it! These look amazing
I tried these made with corn oil and creole seasoning. They were amazing! I’ll definitely be making them again, such a good way to use up tortillas. They cook surprisingly quickly though.
This is such a great idea! I’ve never thought to make chips from tortilla wrap! I need to try this at home!
So much better than the packet ones.
This looks yummy!! Homemade is o much better than store bought!!

Hee hee, I am a double dipper, but only at home. These look great; we love making our own chips like this.
Only double dip when you cannot be seen!

Have not heard of Flip & Dip before but it looks like a great dinner for idea on hot summer evenings with some flatbread!
And a cheeky glass of wine!
These look yummy! Ive made my own tortilla chips before actually, when I didn’t have enough money to get by. They make a great snack!

So much better for you to make your own.

I love chips and dips!
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
I saw these in the supermarket the other day and I meant to pick one up. I love Philadelphia, so I know I would love this too.
They are delicious. Lovely texture of the whipped Philly.
I love making my own dips but these look great if you’re in a rush.
I either make my dips or my dippers – rarely both!
Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs
I love making tortilla chips this way!!! And OMG…I’ve seen these flip and dips advertised EVERYWHERE. You’ve convinced me to give them a try!
We love the Flip and Dips – so good with our homemade chips.
didn’t realise it was that easy to make them, they look yummy!
So quick and easy to make them, no excuse to buy them ever again really.
This is awesome. I did not know how to make tortilla chips and sweet chilli philly is my favourite flavour too!
so easy to make! Love those flip and dips.
I sometimes double dip, but not very often, and ALWAYS at home. These homemade tortilla chip look delicious too :)
So good to know there are other double dippers out there! The chips are great, so tasty and so easy to make.
This is a super idea, far healthier than the packet version. Better chips means more dips right?
I’m not a fan of corn tortilla chips, but I think these would be great for hummus dipping.
I’m a real fiend when it comes to chips and dips. Far too easy to finish an entire packet off. These would be a lot safer for my diet.
I drive my wife nuts with my dipping habits. She is the opposite to me, very particular. I am all in there, mixing them up, dipping after biting. Like the look of these flip and dips, will have to give them a try.
I love homemade tortilla chips, so so much nicer than shop bought. I usually have them with a bit of herb salt on. Delicious.
Such a good idea for a dipping chip. Nice and simple and so easy to make.
This worked really well! I used extra virgin olive oil and added smoked paprika and salt. Perfect with tzatziki
