This weekend I made my own Fritos.
These are so, so easy to make. And you can customize the shape, size, flavor, etc.
My seasoning came out a little dark because I sprinkled it on before baking. It’s not as pretty, but it is tasty. And if you want something more attractive you can add the seasoning at the end.
I took a shortcut by using pre-made corn tortillas from the grocery store, but I was still able to customize them with whatever flavors I wanted. They are ready in about 15 minutes.
I couldn’t wait to dig in and I love how crunchy they are even though they are baked.
I used a BBQ spice rub on these, but you can use whatever seasoning you want.
If you don’t use up all of your tortillas you can make them to make my beer battered fish tacos.

Do It Yourself BBQ Fritos
- 6 small corn torilla rounds
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3-4 tbsp seasoning of your choice
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice off ends of corn tortilla rounds. Then slice tortilla into strips, 1/2 inch wide. Slice the long strips in half, so each tortilla strip is approximately 1/2 inch by 2 inches. Place cut strips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Brush strips with oil. Flip over and brush the other side. Sprinkle half the seasoning on one side of the chips and half the seasoning on the other side. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the strips are crunchy. Please note, that the seasoning will darken during baking. You can also sprinkle seasoning on after they are baked, but you'll have to brush additional oil on first to make the seasoning stick. I didn't want my chips to be too oily so I sprinkled the seasoning on before baking.
