  • Air fryer



  • Remove tortillas from package. Stack them on top of each other.
  • Cut tortillas in half, in half again, and in half again to create triangles.
  • Spray tortilla triangles with oil, then sprinkle with salt.
  • Place tortilla triangles into air fryer basket or tray. They can be stacked.
  • Air fry at 250F/176C for 6-7 minutes. Shake mid way through cook time.
  • Enjoy with salsa or your favorite dip.



  • If you are gluten free, be sure to verify that the corn tortillas are indeed gluten free. Sometimes you will get a flour and corn mixture. 
  • You can stack the tortilla triangles on each other, they shouldn’t stick.
  • We did not have any trouble with the tortillas flying around but you could always put a trivet on top of them to ensure they are secured.
  • The cooking time may vary depending on the brand of your air fryer and the brand and thickness of the tortillas.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
