Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

A few weeks ago I made some fresh pineapple salsa that I planned to use for a taco recipe. I promise that recipe is still coming! But at the time all I really wanted to do was eat that salsa with some really good tortilla chips. So, I made some. I love a bag of tortilla chips, but nothing compares to warm, crunchy, salty chips from the oven. It takes practically zero effort to make your own homemade baked tortilla chips and I’m going to show you how.

You can use a knife or kitchen shears to cut your tortillas into triangles. I stacked my tortillas in groups of three or four and cut through them easily with a pizza cutter. Don’t get too caught up in making perfect shapes. They’re going to taste great no matter what.

The key to perfectly crisp baked tortilla chips is to evenly, yet lightly, coat each triangle in oil. I found it most efficient to oil a baking sheet, then add the tortillas and flip/massage each piece. You’ll want to arrange the triangles in a single layer so each one has full contact with the hot sheet pan. Sprinkle the tortillas with as much salt as you’d like and pop them in the oven to crisp up.

Flip your chips halfway through baking and sprinkle with more salt. Keep an eye on the chips in the last few minutes of baking to make sure they don’t burn. They should be golden brown and crisp after 15 to 17 minutes total. Let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before enjoying with your favorite salsa. They’re also super tasty crumbled on taco salad or over vegan chili

Ingredients

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

This easy recipe for Baked Loaded Potato Wedges will blow you away with the delicious combo of crispy baked potatoes,  tofu bacon bits, and a creamy vegan cashew cheese sauce.

While you could eat these loaded potato wedges as a meal or side dish, I love serving these as a shared appetizer or a Game Day snack. Having a few is delicious, but having a whole sheet pan on your own is quite gluttonous so you might want to share. If you’re hosting a party, a movie night or a game day get-together, make sure to put these delicious loaded potato wedges on the menu and you will be everyone’s favorite!

These Vegan Cheesy Potato Wedges are perfect for when you’re craving something cheesy and comforting. The potatoes are baked not fried.  They are baked on the same sheet pan as the tofu bacon which makes for easy clean-up. While the potato wedges are baking, we whip up my favorite vegan cashew cheese sauce. It only takes minutes and you’ll love the creamy rich texture. I like to make some extra and serve pasta with vegan cheese sauce and bacon the next day. You can also slice the potatoes into halves to make loaded baked potatoes!
