Ingredients for Your Tortilla Chips

Tortillas – plain flour Mission brand is what we’ve used in this recipe

Olive oil – only a tiny bit will go a long way to make these tortilla chips crunchy.

Salt – love a little salt to make these babies even more moorish.

Preparing your Tortilla Chips

Stack your tortillas in a piles of around 3 and then cut them into halves. Now cut the halves into triangles so you get 3 x 9 triangles.  Then do the same for the other half.

If you rather you can use kitchen scissors too.

Making the Best Tortilla Chips

For the mega crispiest ever tortilla chips try not to stack too many chips into the air fryer basket at the one time.

Cook for 3 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius then flip and cook another 3 minutes.

Just after cooking you can either spray with an olive oil spray after cooking or drizzle with olive oil from a bottle then sprinkle with salt.

The main thing to remember is that you only need a tiny amount of oil to create lovely crispy tortilla chips. (video below)
