Ingredients for Air Fryer Tortilla Chips
4-6 Tortillas- I use 5.5 inch round corn tortillas, like Mission Tortillas, and they are the perfect size for air frying chips
Olive Oil- or olive oil spray
Salt-I use a light sprinkle, but you can add more or none at all, to taste preference
How to make Homemade Tortilla Chips in Air Fryer
Brush tortillas with olive oil or spray with olive oil cooking spray, until each piece is coated. If you have a pastry brush, you can also use that to brush the oil onto the tortillas.
Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife and cut the tortillas into triangles.(You can cut the tortillas before or after brushing with oil)
Place tortilla wedges into the air fryer basket, laying them in a single layer, without overlap. Sprinkle tortilla pieces with salt or other seasonings you may wish to use.
Working in batches, air fry at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-9 minutes, turning the chips halfway through cooking time. Chips will be golden brown and crispy when done.
The first time I made flour tortilla chips in the air fryer, they weren't the crispiest chips, and need less time cooking or they burn. Corn tortillas make much better crunchy chips.
Keep the cooked chips stored in a sealed bag or airtight container at room temperature. They should be fresh for a few days. If they lose their crispness, you can reheat them in the air fryer for additional 2-3 minutes cook time until they are crispy again.
Corn tortilla chips are a lower calorie and healthier option. Two 5-inch tortillas is only 3 points on WW blue.
Use low-carb tortillas so they are keto friendly. If using tortillas low in carbohydrates, read the nutritional information on the package. Carbs per tortilla will vary based on brand and size of tortillas you use. To make variations of tortilla chips, follow the same instructions, but you may need to adjust cook times.
You can add these chips to a soup or salad, or dip into your favorite fresh salsa, guacamole, or nacho cheese dip. These chips also make delicious nachos. For additional protein, add shredded chicken to your nacho toppings.
I make these in my Cosori Air Fryer. If you have a different air fryer, cooking times may need to be adjusted by 1-2 minutes.
