Baked Cinnamon Chips

Quick and easy Baked Cinnamon Chips are made by brushing flour tortillas with melted butter, sprinkling with cinnamon-sugar, and baking until light and crisp. They make a delicious snack on their own, or try topping them with some vanilla ice cream and buttermilk caramel sauce or hot fudge. They are also delicious dipped in fruit dip or straight into whipped cream. Two of our favorite uses are to build a plate of decadent Strawberry-Chocolate Nachos or dip in Fruit Salsa!

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil.

How to Make Baked Cinnamon Chips:

Simply lay out your tortillas and brush each one with melted butter and sprinkle with a little cinnamon-sugar and then cut into wedges.  I’ve provided measurements and quantities in the recipe, but you can absolutely eyeball literally everything here. I never measure anything when I make these.  Simply brush and sprinkle!

Lay them on a baking sheet (I line mine with parchment or foil for easy clean up) and then bake them in the oven.  Different brands and sizes of tortillas might take varying amounts of time but it’s usually about 10 minutes or so.  Just keep an eye on them and take them out when they turn golden on the edges.

When they’re done and cooled completely they’ll be light and crisp and oh so delicious. These are yummy, addicting little things. You can use them for all kinds of things- try making nachos by topping them with some vanilla ice cream and buttermilk caramel sauce or hot fudge. Or dip them in fruit dip or straight into whipped cream. Or just snack on them plain- they make a great after school snack. My toddler loves making these with me!

Questions & Reviews

  1. I make these all the time, but instead of brushing with butter, I just brush with water. Makes super low-fat chips that I serve with strawberry salsa in the summer.

  2. I made these last night to go along with ice cream. I was trying to replicate an old favorite bluebell ice cream, it turned out to be perfect! So simple, yet so delicious, also gives me a way to use up old tortillas. thanks! 🙂

  3. Sara,
    You are wonderful. Thank you for responding so quickly & leaving a cute post on my blog! I tried the chips with store bought Wilson tortillas. Huge success! Today, I had a couple of raw Costco ones in the fridge with some left-over butter from last night. I gave it a try. I first cooked them as they suggest on the package. I then, let it cool, and forgot to cut it before putting the butter & sugar on it. So, when I took it out of the oven, I cut it up and thought, hey, I have more butter & sugar, so I turned turned them over, buttered, & sugared, and put 'em back into the oven for a couple more minutes. They are super yummy! Seriously though, who could go wrong with more butter & sugar? Thank you!

  4. I made these with multi-grain tortillas, and they were still good! Next time I’m buying the good old white kind, because I’m sure they’ll taste even better! My bils were also impressed with these.

  5. Jodi, I’ve often wondered the same thing, but I’ve yet to try it with the raw tortillas. I’m not sure if they will bake up the same, but ya I’d probably cook them as normal and then bake. Next time I use those I will experiment- let me know if you try anything too!

  6. Have you made these with the Costco uncooked tortillas? How would I use them? Cook them first. Cool. Then butter, sugar, slice, bake….???? Any suggestions? Happy Belated Birthday!

  7. haha, you’re lame bro! If you tasted these you’d totally approve of the tiny ingredient list 🙂

  8. Happy Birthday Sara! Hope it was a wonderful one – it sounded delicious! I am Provo right now for my son’s college graduation and we will be celebrating at Tucano’s – his favorite! I of course will be making a stop at either Cafe Rio or Costa Vida sometime during the weekend!!

  9. Happy Birthday!!

    Ok, this and the fruit salsa recipe are going to my file-to make!

  10. Happy Birthday! Hurray for the big 30–we’re the same age for the next month! What’s a birthday anyway if you can’t indulge in all your favorite foods?

  11. I was going to look up a recipe to make this to go along with a fruit salsa recipe that I love. Thanks, you saved me the trouble.

  12. Oh good one! I make these for the kids sometimes. The other fun thing to do like this is pie crust. I bake it with some butter spread on it and cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on it. So yummy and makes the house smell amazing. Then we just break it up and fight over it!

    Try it… your little one will love it.

  13. We are birthday buddies! In age even! I feel you on the birthday food coma. Mine was doughnuts at work followed by homemade caramels and dinner at Goodwood. I’ve been following your blog for a while and love your recipes.

  14. Happy Birthday! I am all with you in going all out and eating whatever you want on your birthday, especially the big 30! 🙂

  15. You know what would be REALLY good to drizzle over these? Sweetened Condensed Milk!! YUM!

  16. I love to make these and eat them with some frozen mixed berries that have been slightly defrosted (so they’re not mushy and gross yet) mixed w/ a little bit of brown sugar. Yummy!

  17. This recipe actually has 4 ingredients, if you count the cinnamon and sugar seperately. See? You’re just fine.

    I just made them, and the kids gobbled them up. Yum! We do taco bars for family gatherings, and I’m thinking this would be a good dessert to do with that.

  18. yey for tucanos!! i think my hubby’s taking me there tonight for my b-day . . . i think we might have to reservations though because of graduation or end-of-finals celebrations . . .
    PS – the cinnammon chips look awesome Ü

  19. Happy belated Birthday! Sounds like you had a great day! The cinnamon chips look fantastic. I always have tortillas…

  20. MMMMM Tucano’s! we used to go there all the time when we lived in Provo! It was our favorite place to take our visitors from TX. Now that we’re back in TX, we miss being able to go there at lunch time (when it’s cheaper).

  21. These look delicious! Growing up, we used to heat a tortilla over the stove flame, slather it with butter and sugar, fold it up and eat it like a Mexican crepe! The crunch on yours beats mine any day!
