Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

A Sweet Crunch in Every Bite!



Preparation Phase & Tools To Use

Tools Needed:

  • Baking sheets
  • Parchment paper or silicone baking mats (for non-stick baking)
  • Brush (for applying butter)
  • Mixing bowl (for cinnamon-sugar mixture)
  • Knife or pizza cutter (for cutting tortillas)
  • Oven

Ingredients & Their Roles

  • 10 (6-inch) flour tortillas: The base of your chips, providing structure.
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted: Adds richness and helps the cinnamon sugar adhere to the tortillas.
  • 1/2 cup white sugar: Provides sweetness to the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon: Gives the chips their characteristic warm, spicy flavor.

Step-By-Step Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line your baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats for easy cleanup.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl until well combined.
  3. Cut the tortillas into wedges. Stack the tortillas and use a knife or pizza cutter to cut them into 8 equal wedges, making chip-sized pieces.
  4. Brush both sides of the tortilla wedges with melted butter. This not only adds flavor but also helps the cinnamon sugar mixture stick.
  5. Coat the tortilla wedges in the cinnamon sugar mixture. You can do this by sprinkling the mixture over the wedges or by dipping them into the bowl. Ensure an even coating for the best flavor and crunch.
  6. Arrange the coated wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. They should not touch to ensure even cooking and crispiness.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the chips are lightly browned and crispy. The time may vary depending on your oven, so keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  8. Let the chips cool before serving to allow them to crisp up further.

Nutritional Information & Health Benefits

Cinnamon tortilla chips offer a sweet treat with the warm, comforting flavor of cinnamon. Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties and can help regulate blood sugar levels. However, these chips should be enjoyed in moderation due to their sugar and butter content.

Common Mistakes To Avoid & How to Perfect the Recipe

  • Overlapping the chips: Ensure they are in a single layer on the baking sheet for even crisping.
  • Applying too much butter: Use just enough to coat the tortillas lightly; excess butter can make the chips soggy.
  • Overbaking: Keep a close eye on the chips, as they can quickly go from perfectly crispy to burnt.
  • Skipping the cooling time: Allow the chips to cool for a few minutes after baking. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
