The flavor is fabulous because it comes from my Homemade Taco Seasoning.

These chips have tacos’ cumin and pepper flavor with a little extra added cheesiness. (Nope! There isn’t any cheese. They only taste like it. They’re 100% dairy-free.)

Did I mention they are easy to make? Yeah! Your kids will be making these. They’re that simple. Crunchy, taco-y, cheesy goodness! What’s not to love?

Homemade Taco chips are one of our family’s favorite savory, crunchy snacks. But, if you love crunchy, and want to satisfy a sweet tooth, be sure to check out Jennifer’s Unicorn Popcorn over at a Magical Mess.

How to Make Homemade Taco Chips

Preheat your oven and arrange six corn tortillas on a baking sheet.

Use a pastry brush [affiliate link] to apply oil to the tops and bottoms of each tortilla. Trying to keep it uniform across the whole surface, all the way to the edges, will help your taco chips to bake up to their crispy best.

Sprinkle my Homemade Taco Seasoning over both sides of each tortilla.

Cut each tortilla into eight triangles. I use a pizza cutter for this, but you could use a sharp knife if that’s all you have. This recipe makes 48 taco chips. Use the multiplier in the recipe card if you need to double or triple the batch.

Bake, serve and enjoy!

What to Serve with Homemade Taco Chips

These Taco Chips are fabulous with my delicious 10 Minute Taco Dip.

Try them with any of these tasty dips and toppings, too.

We also love homemade taco chips for nachos, crumbled on salads and inserted into a Chicken Crunchwrap Supreme.

And if you’ve never tried my friend Chichi’s Mexican Tuna Salad, you must make some to enjoy with these crunchy taco chips. What a sensation!

Homemade Taco Chips are also perfect with my Jalapeno Popper Dip, for scooping up big bites of the Best Easy Chili Recipe and for adding to Charcuterie Cups for any occasion.

Homemade Taco Chips are a snack you can feel good about serving because you know exactly what’s in them. They’re baked instead of fried, yet they are perfectly crunchy and satisfying.  My homemade taco seasoning is the secret to their just-one-more flavor.  You’re gonna love them!


Units Scale
  • 6 (6″) white corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or your preferred oil)
  • 34 Tablespoons homemade taco seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Lay the tortillas out on a baking sheet.
  3. Use a pastry brush to brush both sides of each tortilla with oil.
  4. Sprinkle taco seasoning (1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon) onto each tortilla, carefully coating each one fully, by massaging the taco seasoning right out to the edges.
  5. Flip the tortillas over and repeat the same process, being sure the taco seasoning fully coats the entire tortilla.
  6. Use a pizza wheel to cut each tortilla into 8 equal triangles.
  7. Bake the chips in your preheated oven for about 10 minutes.  They will be lightly browned and crisp when done.
