I’m a tortilla lover in all its forms, and of course tortilla chips. In Mexico we call them totopos. The best thing about tortilla chips is that they can be either wheat or corn! For these spooky scary baked tortilla chips I used both. Ghosts are made of wheat tortillas and moons are made of corn tortillas. You only need 3 ingredients, and you can pair them with whatever your favorite salsa, or with guacamole. Yum!
Here’s what you’ll need:
– tortillas (wheat or corn)
– cooking oil
– Halloween cookie cutters
Preheat oven to 380° F. Start by placing a tortilla on a cutting board. Use the cookie cutter of your choice and start cutting the tortillas, one at a time. I used both wheat and corn tortillas. Go with corn tortillas if you want your spooky chips to be gluten free!
Place the tortillas on a baking tray. I lined mine with parchment paper. Lightly spray or brush the tortillas with oil. If you don’t have oil in spray, lightly brush the tortillas with oil of your choice. I used olive oil in spray. If you prefer a more neutral tasting oil, you can use avocado oil. Sprinkle the tortillas with salt.
Place the tray in the oven. Wheat tortilla chips will be done and crispy in 10 minutes. Corn tortilla chips will be ready and crispy in 20 minutes.
At our home, chips are always a hit. I had to be super fast to take these photos, because they were flying! My son Robbie loves guacamole with tortilla chips. Spooky tortilla chips were definitely even more wanted!
Now you know how to make tortilla chips! You can make them any shape, and maybe go with heart shaped tortilla chips for Valentine’s Day! Remember, you can use either wheat or corn tortillas, but pay attention to the cooking times.
Do not worry about waste, because there really isn’t. You can cut the leftovers in strips and bake them as well! Use the same process, add oil & salt, and into the oven. Use them to top your favorite soup or just to munch!
I hope you prepare them!
