Tips for Making this Recipe
Start with fresh tortillas. Fresh tortillas will crisp up nicely when baked. If your tortillas are stale or too dry, the chips may end up too brittle or burned.
Cut the tortillas into even wedges. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut your tortillas into even wedges. This will ensure that they bake evenly.
Brush or spray the tortillas with oil. Lightly brush both sides of the tortilla wedges with oil to help them crisp up in the oven.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl, and then sprinkle the mixture over the tortilla wedges. Be sure to coat each wedge evenly.
Let them cool. Once the chips are out of the oven, let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before serving. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
Use butter instead of olive oil spray. I use olive oil spray because it is easier but you can also melt butter and spread the melted butter on both sides of the tortilla instead of the olive oil. If you are using butter be sure to use unsalted butter as the salt in salted butter will overpower the cinnamon and sugar flavor.
