Cheesy Baked Tortilla Chips
Posted By Savita
This recipe surpass the expectation of homemade baked tortilla chips!! Forget regular chips, serve your guests, cheese-stuffed baked chips for big game day!!
Sounds fun? Isn't it?
No matter, big party or small, there is always room for chips and salsa! Don't you think? I'm obsessed with serving chips and salsa in all get-togethers. It is so easy to make a big batch and chit-chat continues while chips last in bowl.
Often, I serve simple seasoned chips and go fancy with dips such as 7 Layer Black Bean Dip, Fiesta Cheese Dip or Garlic Guacamole! However, for special game-day like Super Bowl, I have decided to go little fancy. I stuffed-up plain chips with a layer of fiesta cheese blend and some seasonings. It is like seasonings the chips from with-in! As if chips too are getting ready to watch the games! ;)
You won't believe, a simple 4 ingredient recipe can change the chemistry of party! Everyone will be loving the idea while munching on crispy cheesy baked chips and will be sure thinking - I should bake these for my next party ;-)
Good part is, you know what they thinking! Knowing what's going on in your guest's mind!! Can it go better than that? Just saying! ;-))
So, let's dig in!
Simple Baked Tortilla Chips:
First of all, if you are here looking for simple baked tortilla chips recipe. Don't get disappointed. I can tell you that same instructions work for baking simple salted tortilla chips as well. In-fact this is my go-to recipes to bake chips whenever. Simply brush/spray the wheat tortillas with some cooking oil and sprinkle some salt. Then bake in preheated oven until tops are slightly brown and getting crispier. Works like charm every time and there is no greasy mess in the house.
Cheesy Baked Tortilla Chips:
Now, this is recipe, with cheese stuffing, can only be baked not fried. If fried, cheese will melt and ooze out... So baking work perfectly. Only thing to make sure is not to over-stuff tortillas with cheese or you will have cheese-crisps to serve on side of tortillas. ;)
Like I went little crazy with filling few of the tortillas and I had cheese crisp hanging-out of a few chips...
...So, fill little less cheese and try to stay in middle line of tortilla where you fold. Cheese will spread while baking and will have a nice layer by the time chips bake.
Hands down these baked chips have become my favorite things to serve in parties. If you planning to host a game-day party, bake a batch of these tortilla chips. Trust me, you will be so happy you did. :)
Have a wonderful day!
Make these delicious party-dips to serve on side!

Cheesy Baked Tortilla Chips
- 6-8 Tortillas (medium, wheat tortillas )
- 1 Cup Four Cheese Blend
- 1-2 tbsp Taco Seasoning
- Oil Spray
- Salsa (for serving)
1. Preheat oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Spray parchment with oil spray. Line 5-6 tortillas. Place 2-3 tbsp cheese in middle each tortilla, sprinkle 1-2 generous pinch of seasoning, and fold in half.
Additional NotesMake sure to not spread cheese and place cheese only in middle so that it does not ooze out when baked.
3. Spray top with oil spray. Sprinkle some salt. Bake in preheated oven for 7-10 minutes or until top are light brown. (After first 3 minutes, take out tray and press all tortillas with back of a wide spatula, then return to finish baking.)
4. Once baked, take out, let rest for a minute. Then, use pizza cutter to cut into chips-style wedges. Serve immediately with salsa. Enjoy!
