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!

Recipe Notes

  • 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.

Recipe FAQs

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.

  4. Christy,

    I’ve made these for years! When we have left over tortillas, I always make these to get rid of the extras. Last year for a reunion, I made these with a fruit dip. They both went over really well. Although, my hubby likes me to deep fry them before I put the cinnamon and sugar on them. I’d rather bake them.

    Thanks Christy. Think I’ll make these tonight!

  5. These definitely are fabulouse! My co-leader and I had our Girl Scout troop make these at one of out meetings to work on a “Sweet Treats” badge. They were a big hit…….the girls LOVED them! They were good just by themselves and dipped in various sweet dip treats (chocolate sauce was the favorite of the day!)
