OVEN INSTRUCTIONS:

  8. Put the tortilla chip pieces onto the lined baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
  9. About half way through you’ll want to shake the tray and spray with some cooking oil spray if they seem dry.

  11. Once the chips have finished baking and have cooled, arrange them on a plate.

  6. Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the tortilla into 6 pieces. 
  7. Transfer your small parchment paper sheet with the flour tortilla chip pieces into your air fryer and cook for 8 minutes. If using 2 tortillas just make sure to spread them out and do not overcrowd the bin. You will need to shake the air fryer tray about halfway through and possibly spray with the cooking spray to make them extra crisp while air frying.

Notes

  • Use the cooking spray to spray the tortilla after the butter has been applied to use in the air fryer to make sure they crisp up
