Air Fryer Tortilla Chips Low-Calorie

 

My air fryer is one of the best investments I’ve made for my kitchen. Many foods that are typically deep fried can be air fried instead, and doing this significantly cuts back on calories. I wasn’t big on deep frying initially, but the air fryer gives me more reason to make these foods in a healthier way.

 

If you are unfamiliar with how the air fryer works, it basically works by circulating hot air around the food to produce a crunchy, crispy exterior. Deep-fried foods are generally higher in fat, but using an air fryer can cut the fat content of fried foods by up to 75%. Air fryers do a fantastic job cooking up anything that’s meant to taste deep-fried. Above all, it’s a great option.

Earlier this week, I made these air fryer tortilla chips to go along with my easy salsa recipe. The process is very simple. I bought street taco sized corn tortillas, and cut each tortilla in to 4 triangles. They make the perfect sized chips. I sprayed my tortillas with a zero-calorie olive oil spray, but you can brush on real olive oil instead if you’d like.

 

Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, the chips may take some time to cook. It’s best to place them in a single layer. Too much stacking of the tortillas will prevent them from cooking evenly. Some parts of the tortilla won’t crisp up properly if they are too crowded in the basket. The air fryer makes the perfect homemade tortilla chips, and is worth the wait.

Ingredients

  • 3 Mission yellow corn street taco tortillas
  • zero calorie olive oil spray
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  • Cut each tortilla into 4 triangles. Lay flat on baking sheet.
  • Spray the tortillas lightly with the olive oil spray and sprinkle with salt, to taste. Much of the salt will fall off during cooking.
  • Place the tortilla triangles into the air fryer basket. Make sure to spread out into a single layer so triangles aren't overlapping much.
  • Cook at 360°, flipping the triangles over half way through cooking. Check on triangles 5 minutes after cooking to ensure they don't get too brown. They get brown very quickly towards the end of cooking time.
  • Enjoy!
