These quick & easy Crunchy Garlic Tortilla Strips make for the perfect garnish or pre-dinner snack (I can’t be the only one who gets hangry after a long day of work). I got this idea from my mom, who always makes little tortilla strips to garnish her amazing White Chicken Chili.
They only take 10 minutes in the oven and are the perfect garnish for a hot bowl of chili, posole, and tortilla soup. I even like them dipped in a little ranch, although they are delightful on their own!
Crunchy Garlic Tortilla Strips
8 corn tortillas
2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the corn tortillas into thirds, then cut each third width-wise into 1/4-inch strips. In a mixing bowl, toss the tortilla strips with vegetable oil, garlic powder, and salt to taste until evenly coated.
Place the tortilla strips on a baking sheet and spread out the strips so they are even distributed and not in a pile. Place the sheet in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-7 minutes.
