Homemade tortilla chips are very easy to make at home. Simply cut corn or flour tortillas, toss in a little oil and spread out on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 6-10 minutes until crispy and golden brown. While warm toss with salt. Alternatively you could fry your chips in oil or using the air fryer.

Tools I used for this warm green chili dip:

  • Can Opener – this is my go to can opener, it has stayed sharp for a while and doesn’t break the bank
  • Ceramic Bowls – perfect for serving this dip!
