If you’ve ever wondered what churro chips would taste like, you need to make this super quick and easy 4-ingredient cinnamon tortilla chips recipe. Crunchy tortilla slices are coated in a delicious combination of cinnamon and sugar. Just try and stop at one bite!
Y’all made me make these! Every time I’ve mentioned something about making Tex Mex someone would talk about these and ask if I’d made them before and every time someone mentioned it I’d think, “Wow, that DOES sound good!”.
So I finally got around to making a batch of cinnamon tortilla chips and now I see what all the fuss is about. These are DELICIOUS. I love how crispy and cinnamony they are. The kids had cow fits over them, and I ended up having to make two more batches! Some folks have told me that they serve them with honey, some with a fruit salsa of sorts, and many just eat them as is, which is what we have started doing. Either way, you can’t go wrong!
I also love how easy it is to make these churro chips. All you have to do is mix the cinnamon and sugar together (name a better combo), brush tortillas in butter, sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar, and bake! In less than 10 minutes they’ll be ready to devour. Which is a good thing because I don’t think my kids would wait any longer!
So tonight is going to be taco night at our house. One of everyone’s favorite meals and easy peasy to make. Here are some of my favorite taco recipes: Greek chicken tacos, instant pot beef barbacoa tacos, and sweet potato and black bean tacos. I think a serving of cinnamon tortilla chips will be the perfect dessert afterward, don’t you think?
Ooh, let’s make some of these to go with our tacos now, okay? Sit down and get comfy, I’ll have them ready in a jif!
- Flour tortillas
- Granulated white sugar
- Unsalted butter or margarine
- Ground cinnamon
How to Make Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
Place your sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Stir that up a bit.
Melt your butter or margarine and brush it on one side of each flour tortilla.
Sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, then repeat with the other side.
I used a pizza cutter to just slice it into wedges.
Place this in the oven at 350, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown on each side.
Chips will crisp up as they cool.
Serve these cinnamon tortilla chips however you like. While they make the perfect snack on their own, they’re also a grand addition to your taco night!
Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. I recommend quickly crisping them up again in the oven or air fryer.
- Feel free to follow these steps and bake your cinnamon tortilla chips in the air fryer instead. They should cook quicker and only need 5 minutes on each side.
- To make these vegan homemade tortilla chips, substitute the butter for olive oil or vegan butter.
- For something different, substitute the cinnamon sugar for pumpkin pie spice.
- For perfectly cooked chips, don’t overcrowd the baking sheet.
How do you serve baked cinnamon sugar tortilla chips?
There are so many ways to serve cinnamon tortilla chips! Serve them plain or drizzle them in honey, maple syrup, or even peanut butter for a seriously scrumptious snack. Another option is to serve them with homemade fresh fruit salsa, some finely diced strawberries, or make dessert nachos. Place a single layer of chips on a platter and top with softened ice cream, strawberry slices, and hot fudge or chocolate sauce. A smaller but just as delicious dessert includes serving the baked cinnamon chips with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
Can I fry my tortilla chips instead of baking them?
Yes, if you like you can pan fry your cinnamon sugar tortilla chips in a layer of vegetable oil until crisp and golden.
Can I use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas?
Yes, you can use corn tortillas to make cinnamon sugar chips. However, as they’re more delicate they’ll need less cooking time.

These are also great with this Apple Pie Dip
1 1/3 cups peeled, cored, and diced apple
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons apricot preserves
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all the dip ingredients in a bowl, then cover and refrigerate the mixture until chilled.
I bet these are good! I make these a little differently. I cut the tortillias in strips, deep fry them in vegetable oil, drain and then shake them is a paper bag containing the cinnimon and sugar. They are crispy like chips but oh so good.
This is sounding like “what’s for dessert” tonigt…. thanks for sharing!
Yum…wonder if this would work with pita bread! I bet it will!
My mother used to do a Mexican strawberry shortcake using these with frozen strawberries and cool whip on top instead of pound cake or angel food cake. Trick is to let it sit a bit before you eat so that some of the tortillas soften up a bit while other parts stay nice and crisp. DELISH!
I wonder if Corn tortillas would change the taste drastically…. allergic to the darn flour…
Will be trying these soon!
