Skip the unhealthy high-fat corn chips from the store and learn how to make chips out of tortillas in the air fryer in this super easy homemade chip hack! No last-minute rush to the store when you realise you’re out of chips when you can make your own air fryer tortilla chips in under 10 minutes! Serve them with your favourite dips or load them up like nachos.

There is nothing worse than when you have a craving for guacamole and corn chips, only to realise you don’t have any corn chips!

But that's okay because you can make your own tortilla chips using flour tortillas or corn tortillas in the air fryer!

This simple chip hack takes no time at all to create your own healthier alternative to corn chips at home. Not only are they perfectly crunchy for serving with dip. You can also season them any way you please too!

All you need is tortilla wraps. Plain flour tortilla wraps work fine and this is what I usually use to make our air fryer tortilla chips.

However, you can also use corn tortillas, whole grain tortillas or any flavoured wraps as well. They would be great with spinach wraps for something different.

Or if you like to make your own homemade tortillas, you can do this from scratch too. But if you’re short on time or want to keep it super easy, pre-made flour tortillas is all you need!T

Tip: I use kitchen scissors to cut my flour tortillas into shape because it is easier than cutting them with a knife and literally takes 30 seconds!

Seasoning For Tortilla Chips

We typically don’t add seasoning to our tortilla chips if we are serving with dip, however, if you want a little extra flavour, it’s simple to do. Especially if you want to add a little spice to your flour tortilla chips.

Some great options for seasoning tortilla chips are:

  • Paprika
  • Chilli flakes
  • Salt
  • Cummin
  • Garlic powder

You can add seasoning to your homemade corn tortilla chips after they are baked.

Or for an extra-strong flavour punch, mix up your seasoning in a bowl with a little olive oil and brush on both sides of your tortillas before you cut them into chips.

Tortilla Chip Serving Ideas

Making corn tortilla chips means you can enjoy them in all the same ways you would typically enjoy corn chips. Dip them into salsa or serve with a variety of dips. Guacamole is my favourite, but the options are endless!

Turn them into healthier nachos, loaded with ground meat, salsa, sour cream, cheese and guacamole. Place your tray under the grill to melt the cheese on top before serving.

Or simple switch out your usual favourite chips from the store with your own air-fried chips and your choice of seasoning as a lower calorie alternative to your go-to savoury snack!
