About Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

Followers of this little food blog know how much I love dessert dips. And when you have that many options to choose from, it only makes sense to have a few recipes to serve with them.

Like, say, homemade cinnamon sugar tortilla chips.

And believe me, these chips are a perfect compliment to any dessert dip because, like the dips themselves, they’re so easy to make.

How to make cinnamon and sugar tortilla chips.

These chips have a “churro” quality to them, so when I made my first batch, I whipped up some fudge sauce to use for dipping.

In retrospect, it seems like an odd combination, but at the time, it made for a perfect afternoon snack. Kinda like a melted candy bar without the messy wrapper to deal with.

And trust me, after the day I had, it made for an awesome treat. Cinnamon, sugar, and chocolate have a way of making any day better.

How to make baked tortilla chips with cinnamon sugar

Step 1 – Start off with a package of corn tortilla chips. Depending on the size of chips you want, you can use anything between the 4.5-inch to the 8-inch tortillas. Then, take a very sharp knife (or pizza cutter) and cut the tortilla into fourths, as shown above.

Step 2 – This step you can get creative with, because it has to do with flavoring. To give the chips a bit of flavor, you want to spray or brush them with something before baking, whether it be a bit of butter, cooking spray, olive oil, etc etc. Since you’re going for a sweet flavor, I’d recommend using butter. Next, toss each chip in cinnamon sugar, coating both sides.

Step 3 – Arrange the chips on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake until crispy.

Step 4 – Let chips cool, then enjoy!

How long do cinnamon tortilla chips last?

In general, these oven baked chips will last anywhere from one to two weeks if stored in an air-tight container. The duration will vary a little depending on how much butter you use (more used = less longevity) or other heavy flavorings (excess cinnamon sugar, etc).

Ingredients 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Finally, add melted butter to another small, shallow bowl. Place all three items nearby.
  • Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, make two cuts across the tortillas so that each tortilla is cut into even halves (as pictured above).
  • Dip the cut tortilla in the butter, then toss in the sugar cinnamon mix. Shake off any excess and place the chip on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat this step until all chips have been coated and are ready to bake.
  • Bake tortillas for 8-10 minutes or until the edges just begin to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle tops with remaining cinnamon sugar, if desired. Allow chips to cool at least 5 minutes before eating.

    Recommend dipping in butter and shake off excess and then bake until crispy. Toss in cinnamon sugar after baking. Baking with sugar on creates a caramelization.

    You didn’t bake them long enough

    This recipe is not good. The “chips” turned out to be a chewy, gooey mess.

    • Teresa

    How many chips are considered a serving for your approx nutritional info? It says yields 40 chips just wasn’t sure if that was the amount you figured nutritional values for. Can’t wait to try this! Thanks!

    I thought these would be crisp. They were still chewy after baking.

      Mine were chewy also. It takes a lot of effort to eat these.

    • Patricia @ Grab a Plate

    Easy, peasy, and delicious! Love the “little bit of churro quality!” Who can say no to that?!

    • Julie @ Texan New Yorker

    I am drooling!! I love cinnamon tortilla chips! One time I made them and crumbled them over boozy chocolate ice cream. Heaven!

    • LOVE that idea Julie! Will have to throw that together the next time I make these chips 😀
