Baked Cinnamon Chips

CATEGORIES: Latin, Other

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!

baked chips recipe


Light and crisp cinnamon-sugar chips are a fun snack!  Try them drizzled in chocolate or caramel or with fruit salsa.


  • 12 6-inch flour tortillas (though you can use any size)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon


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

Lightly brush one side of each tortilla with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar to taste (you may not need all of the sugar mixture).  Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly brown and crisp.  Cool on a cooling rack and serve.

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!

Try them with our Sweet Fruit Salsa, or in Strawberry Chocolate Nachos!


  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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).

  5. 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!
