What To Serve With This Dish 

There are so many different ways to serve these tortilla chips. I like to turn them into dessert nachos by topping them with this Fresh Fruit Salsa.  These cinnamon sugar chips also taste great when dipped into sweet dips such as Cherry Chocolate Chip DipSugar-Free Chocolate Chip Dip, or drizzled with chocolate sauce. 

Substitutions and Additions

  • Instead of using sugar, you can also use your favorite granulated sugar-free sweetener like monk fruit. 
  • Coat the tortillas with a light coating on the butter. You want just enough butter to help the cinnamon-sugar mix stick to the tortilla.
  • If you prefer, you can use your favorite neutral tasting cooking spray instead of butter.
  • Use any type of tortillas that your family enjoys, I’ve used whole wheat tortillas, low-carb tortillas, flour tortillas, and corn tortillas. They all turn out great. Flour tortillas are my personal favorite. 
  • For a little extra sweetness try using light brown sugar for granulated sugar for the cinnamon sugar mixture.

How To Store

Sandra’s Pro Tips

​Here are a few tips that you can use to help you ensure that this great snack turns out perfectly for you when you make it. 

  • I’ve found that the best way to cut the tortillas is to use a pizza cutter, or you can also large knife if you don’t have a pizza cutter on hand. Be sure to cut the tortillas into triangles before baking.
  • For the best flavor make sure that you coat both sides of the chips with the oil and cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Check the firmness of the tortilla chips at the half way point. Flip the chips if the underside is not firming up.
  • For easy clean-up line your baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
