CHIPS! I am a chip girl through and through. Well, not just any old chips, tortilla chips in particular. Those crunchy, salty, tasty little stinkers really make me long for carbs… So I made some.. low carb!

I’m a little surprised how well they turned out. And more surprised that I don’t see recipes for these everywhere? They should have infiltrated the low carb recipe sites with their awesomeness just like the Fathead Pizza Crust and 90 Second Keto Breads have!

Yup, that’s it!

How to make Low Carb Baked Tortilla Chips in 7 Minutes

Ahhhh it’s so easy, it’s a little crazy!

Preheat your oven to 350° and spray a baking sheet with olive oil or avocado oil.

On a cutting board place 3 low carb tortillas. Use a pastry brush to spread olive oil around to cover the whole tortilla. Cut each tortilla into 8 equal wedges and then sprinkle the entire surface evenly with sea salt.

Place on the cookie sheet, salt side up, so that there is no, or minimal, tortilla wedges covering other tortilla wedges. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Pull them out and check for doneness. They should be nice and firm with some possible browning around the edges.

Remove the chips that are fully baked and place the remaining back in the oven for an additional minute. They should be fully baked by now, depending on the thickness of your tortillas. Enjoy with your favourite dip or just by themselves!

Watch the whole thing go down:

Expert Tips

  • The tortillas I prefer are very thin. If yours are thick, just keep baking until they are crisp.
  • The chips crisp up very quickly, so do not bake for longer than 1 minute increments after the initial 5 minutes of baking time.
  • Make them your own by adding other spices or seasoning like vinegar, black pepper, chili or cheese powder!

Frequently asked questions

I’ve pulled together some frequently asked questions here. If you have any of your own questions, please feel free to ask them in the comment section below the recipe card!

Can you eat tortilla chips on keto?

Now you can! Store bought tortilla chips are unfortunately full of carbs, therefor on the very naughty list. Steer clear of store bought tortilla chips and make these 7 Minute Low Carb Baked Tortilla Chips for when the crave hits!

Are low carb tortillas Keto friendly?

Yes! There are a lot of low carb tortillas on the market these days you can buy from your local grocery store. I live in a small town so I have to order mine online, but I don’t mind; there is this great online low carb grocery store that has all kinds of goodies!

I like Mama Lupes Low Carb Tortillas. I buy mine from TheLowCarbGrocery.com but if you are lucky, you can find them in your local grocery store. They are only 3 g net carbs per tortilla, however, they aren’t on the strict keto list because of their ingredients.

If you are doing strict keto, I suggest you make your own keto friendly tortillas, unless there is a brand you know and love. Try making these from gnom gnom; they are keto friendly tortillas. They are a bit thicker than the Mama Lupes that I like to use, so you will have to bake them a bit longer than the 6 minutes.

How many carbs are in a low carb tortilla?

If you go with Mama Lupes, they only have 3 g net carbs per tortilla. Pretty great, right? Going to make your own? That recipe by GnomGnom makes tortillas with only 2 g net carbs!

Ingredients

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Heat oven to 350° and spray a baking sheet with oil.
  • Lay the tortillas on a cutting board and place ½ tsp olive oil in the center of each. Spread the oil around all three tortillas with the pastry brush so that the oil evenly distributed. Cut each tortilla into 8 equal wedges and then sprinkle evenly with the salt.
  • Place on the cookie sheet, salt side up, so that the wedges aren’t covering other wedges, but it’s fine if they are a little over crowded. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then pull them out and check for doneness. They should be nice and firm with some possible browning around the edges.
  • Remove the chips that are fully baked and place the remaining back in the oven for an additional minute. They should be fully baked by now, depending on the thickness of your tortillas. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes before diving into your favourite dip or enjoy them straight up!

    Can I make a boatload of these, ahead of time, for a party? I guess my question really is: How long does the finished product stay crispy? Thanks so much! ❤️

    • Hey Mary! I have always consumed these within a day of making them and they tasted great! I have never had any left to see if they stayed crispy longer than a day, so I am unsure of how long they last before becoming stale.
