I am back again with another TikTok trend: HOMEMADE TORTILLA CHIPS. And OMG you guys I am so addicted, I want to make this every night. I literally could not believe how good these were. Tortilla chips are my ultimate weakness and I so glad to have a low point, portion controlled way to enjoy them. I served them with my zero-point ranch, but I want to explore some other options too!
Now, obviously, you could just buy some tortilla chips. Tortilla chips are not that high in points and easy to find. But try trusting me with a whole bag of tortilla chips in the house… you can’t! Plus, you know I love making my own food, that’s how I got here, so I really enjoy doing this. The act of going through the entire process to make the chips and dip is really relieving to me. Instead of just sitting down with a bag of chips, I can spend some time cooking my own chips.
Here Is What You Need:
Not too many ingredients are required for this dish. We usually have the tortillas in the freezer and everything else readily available.
- Mission Street Tacos corn tortillas
- Cooking spray
- Plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- Ranch seasonings
Now you can certainly use any tortilla of your choice. I just really love Mission’s Street Tacos corn tortillas and that is what I used. They are three points for 3 tortillas, which makes 18 chips. If you have another tortilla that you prefer, or that is lower points, go ahead and use that and adjust the cooking time if necessary.
Butter flavored cooking spray is always highly recommended here on Allie Carte Dishes. I just love the flavor of the butter added to any dish. Adds so much flavor to the dish!
For the salt, I used coarse sea salt. Any will do if you do not have that.
I have made this a few times and I have always used Ranch seasonings. We have a large plastic bottle of it. I really want to try it out with some other flavors. Maybe a French onion or queso? What do you think??
You absolutely need an air fryer for this dish. Sorry, non-negotiable. But really, I have only made it in the air fryer and I have no plans on testing out other methods. It works out perfectly in the air fryer and I don’t think it would work out this well in another cooking method.
I have a two drawer air fryer that I absolutely love. You can order that here if you are interested. It is such a game changer, I can cook two different things with two different times and cooking methods. It is 6-in-1 so there are 6 different ways to cook in it.
Here Is What You Need To Do:
First thing is to cut up the tortillas into tortilla chip shaped triangles. The easiest way to do this is to stack the three tortillas up and slice them in half with a sharp knife. You can grab my knife set here. It is amazing.
Once the tortillas are cut in half, you will need to cut each half into three equal pieces. I keep the three stacked and slice those, then slice the other half of them.
You will end up with 18 triangles that look like this.
Next, I place about half of them in the bottom of my air fryer. I try not to let them overlap because then they don’t get completely covered in salt and I love salt. (Don’t tell my mom, she’s a heart doctor)
Once you get a good layer, spray all the chips with cooking spray. Sprinkle them with salt, to taste.
Add the remaining tortillas on top of these. Repeat the same steps by spraying them with cooking spray and sprinkling with salt.
Place these in the airy fryer at 375 degrees. You can completely control how well done you want them. I did about 7 minutes, but I liked them slightly underdone. If you want them super crispy, add more time.
Halfway through cooking, I just flipped the chips over carefully.
While those are cooking, I make my sauce. I think that my healthy homemade ranch tastes better stored in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavor to for together, but no one has time for that and I am way too impatient.
I just combine the yogurt and ranch in a small container and place it in the fridge. It will only get about 5 minutes in there but, hey, better than nothing.
Once the chips are done, you’ll have a fun snack to enjoy!
I made these, step by step, on my TikTok. You can check that out below and see my reaction when I tried them for the first time!
