My Awesome Homemade Chips (using only ingredients from the Dollar Tree!)

Finished Product ~ Homemade Pepper & Parmesan Tortilla Chips!

I made these chips on a whim today, because I had some flour tortillas that were about to expire.

These tortillas come about 20-25 a pack and are available at The Dollar Tree for (you guessed it!) one dollar! These are also useful for wraps, burritos and soft tacos on Taco night.
Everything used in this recipe can be obtained at your local Dollar Tree:

The Olive Oil (and the bottle it is in), Black Pepper Grinder and Seasoning Salt, and even the pizza cutter (and the cookie sheet i used to cook them on!)...all of it! Dollar Store finds.

Now for the Recipe:

6-8 Tortillas

Cut with pizza cutter into half, then half again, then one more time. Then cut the pieces into chip sized pieces.

In a bowl or square tupperware container, drizzle Olive oil on the bottom

Grind some Pepper, and a couple of dashes of seasoning salt.

begin to lay your tortilla pieces flat. When that layer is finished, drizzle more olive oil, more pepper, more seasoning salt. Repeat until all tortilla pieces are done.

Take a fork and stir it all together, ensuring that all pieces are well coated.

Lay the pieces on a cookie sheet in a single layer.

put in oven at 400-425

if the tortillas fall apart, this is even better because you will end up with chips of varying sizes and thicknesses.

Cook until golden brown, approx. 8 minutes.

Remove from cookie sheet and put on plate to cool. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Serve and Enjoy!


  1. You can also make these sweet by topping with cinnamon and sugar instead of the pepper and salt.
    We use the Can't believe its not butter as the oil, baking time varies depending on how crisp you like your chips.

  2. ooh that sounds like a good idea! Will try it next time! :)
