Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chip Ingredients
This is the perfect snack for a busy day. Only 4 ingredients to whip up these tasty cinnamon sugar chips! My kids love to snack on them. And honestly, anything that doesn’t require a grocery trip is a winner to me! Looking for measurements? You can find them in the recipe card below.
- Flour Tortillas: I always use flour tortillas because it’s what I have around the house. They bake perfectly, too! You can also use soft corn tortillas as a substitute. But keep in mind, corn tortillas are more delicate and will cook faster. If that’s what you choose to use, take off a few minutes of baking time.
- Butter: Melted butter is added to the cinnamon sugar mixture to make it smooth and rich. I always use unsalted butter here to keep things sweet.
- Sugar: Granulated sugar is a key player here. You can adjust the ratios to make it sweeter or less sweet as desired! I, personally, love these chips on the sweeter side!
- Cinnamon: Cinnamon adds the perfect warm spice! I love any cinnamon desserts. They’re so tasty!

Tips for Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
Whether you want to enhance your tortilla chips, or don’t know what to serve them with, I’ve got you covered! These sweet and tasty chips are sure to be a favorite at your house!
- Don’t Overcrowd Chips: If you’re making a double batch of these chips, either bake each batch separately or use 2 baking sheets. Overcrowding your chips in a pan will keep them from cooking thoroughly. Air flow is necessary fo the perfect crunch!
- Other Flavors: For a perfect fall treat, you can add a little homemade pumpkin spice to your cinnamon sugar mix! I’ve loved this variation. You can also dip these in melted chocolate for a decadent twist!
- Dips and Serving Suggestions: I usually serve my cinnamon sugar tortilla chips alongside a sweet dip. S’mores dip, melted caramel, fudge, and cheesecake dip all taste absolutely divine paired with these chips. Caramel pumpkin cheesecake dip is also delicious! Perfect for a fall party.
Storing Leftover Chips
Here’s how to store your cinnamon sugar tortilla chips and enjoy them later! You’re going to love having these around. They’re perfect for munching on!
- At Room Temperature: Store your leftover chips in an airtight container. They will stay good for 3-5 days. If you want to extend the shelf life a little, use less butter when baking them. Oils make them more perishable over time.
