Air Fried Corn Tortilla Chips - No Oil

  • Cut corn tortillas into 8ths and place on the air fryer rack. Place in a cold Breville Smart Oven Air fryer.
  • Set temperature to 375 degrees and set timer for 9 minutes.
  • Different air fryers may require a different temperature and or time. Also different brands of corn tortillas take different times - depends on how thick they are are and how wet they are. Keep a close on them as they can go from lightly brown to burnt quickly!
  • If you don't own an air fryer you can still make good chips in your oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place cut corn tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat mat or parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Time will vary depending on your oven the brand of tortillas used.
