Here’s What You’ll Need

  • Flour tortillas (regular or whole wheat, depending on your preference)

  • Cooking spray or olive oil
  • Seasoning of your choice (sea salt, paprika, chili powder, or garlic powder work well)

How to Make Baked Halloween Tortilla Chips

1. Preheat Your Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. This will ensure your Halloween-shaped tortilla chips bake evenly and become delightfully crispy.

2. Prepare the Tortillas: Lay your tortillas flat on a clean surface. Use your Halloween-themed cookie cutters to cut out spooky shapes from the tortillas. Depending on the size of your cookie cutters and tortillas, you may be able to cut multiple shapes from a single tortilla.

3. Season the Chips: Place your Halloween-shaped tortilla chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat. Lightly coat them with cooking spray or brush them with a small amount of olive oil to help the seasoning stick. Sprinkle salt (or your other chosen seasoning) over the chips.

4. Bake to Perfection: Pop your baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for about 7-10 minutes or until the chips turn golden brown and crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-browning.

5. Cool and Enjoy: Once your homemade Halloween-shaped tortilla chips are out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes to achieve maximum crispiness. Then, serve them up with your favorite dip or enjoy them on their own.
