Who doesn’t like Nachos Chips? I think people of all ages enjoy this snack. Now let’s try my oven baked nachos chips recipe. The best thing about this snack is that you just have to change the dip and it is an all-new recipe. Pretty versatile!
Also known as Tortilla chips, these are primarily used in Mexican cuisine and are often served with cheese dip or salsa.
It is a simple and easy snack recipe made with healthy ingredients. I have used the combination of Maize flour and whole wheat flour to make these baked Mexican Nachos chips.
Apart from the ingredients, I have opted for the healthiest way to make these Nachos Chips. Instead of deep-frying, I have baked these Nachos.

Alright, do not compare the taste of baked nachos chips with market bought fried nachos chips. You cannot compare them. That’s what I feel.
So initially you or your family might feel the difference in the taste of these homemade healthy Baked Nachos. But as soon as you adapt the taste of it, you will love eating them as these baked nachos chips are absolutely guilt-free.

PS: It took 4 nachos chips within which my son shouted, Mom, these actually taste great and I am sure you will not ask me to stop eating them as they are baked not fried.
So without wasting time, let’s get to the recipe!

Baked Nachos Chips Recipe
In a saucepan, boil the water. It should be really hot while mixing with flour.
In another mixing bowl, add maize flour, whole wheat flour, salt. Black pepper and baking soda. Mix all the ingredients and start adding hot water. Mix everything using a spatula and be careful while mixing as water will be hot.
Add oil and make a stiff but smooth dough. As every flour has a different absorption capacity, so if you feel the dough is dry, add water accordingly.
Keep oven for preheating at 180 °C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into two portions and roll each portion into a thin sheet using two layers of parchment paper. While rolling, make sure it’s of even thickness else baking will not be even.
Now using a knife cut the rolled sheet into small triangles and prick it well.
So pricking here is important, else your baked nachos chips will puff up.
Place all the shaped nachos on a lined baking tray and bake it in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 20 minutes.
Every oven behaves differently so you know your oven better. Based upon your oven the baking time can differ. So bake the nachos until these become crispy.
Once baked, take out the tray from the oven and serve freshly baked Nachos Chips with your choice of dip. My family loves to have these with cheese dip or tandoori mayonnaise.

Hi Sonia. Thank you for the recipe. Did you mean 1/2 tsp of baking soda or 1.2 tsp in the recipe? I tried it with 1tsp and it tastes of excess soda. Was wondering if 1/2 tsp would be enough.
It is 1/2 tsp. sorry for the typo error. However I have rectified it.
Thank you so much for notifying.
I tried this recipe, turned out awesome…. My kids loved it.,
Glad your kids liked it.
What should be the oven heating
I mean bottom only or top only or both on??
Use only the bottom coil.
Lovly recipe.Thank you so much for sharing.
Thanks a bunch for your kind words.
how can we bake if we don’t have an oven and we are using a cooker? Also, please suggest if we can use corn flour instead of Maize flour ??
Corn flour and maize flour are different.
This recipe is just perfect. The nachos came out super crispy and perfect
Thanks much for the feedback.
The quantity of ingredients isn’t given…or am I missing it?
Please scroll down and you will find the list of the ingredients in the recipe card.
I tried the recipe in exact same amounts (using measuring cups & spoons) as mentioned. The taste of baking soda over powered the chips and tasted bad. This has happened with me before. Baking soda in amounts, even in cakes ruins the taste of the food.
Then use different brands of baking soda and try. Hope it works.
Do we need to flip them and bake both sides in microwave convection mode?
Yes, you should flip these for even baking.
mam tried the bake they were great but just asking if I fry them would it make a difference for a change i mean
Fried ones are not going to be dry as the baked ones, but you will end up eating oil in large quantities. the purpose of baking is to avoid the unnecessary oil entering into the body.
Tried this recipe and loved it. But the nachos became soft on storing what could be the reason?
Maybe the nachos were thick and not completely baked or you didn’t store these in an airtight container.
hello sonia can nachos be named as nachos when there is no corn in it?
Who said there is no Corn? Please check the ingredients list.
I tried it but I don’t know they stocked on the paper only
Use good quality parchment paper.
It was awesome mam
Thanks a lot, Poonam.

Thank u for sharing this recipe
Hi I dnt have rolled sheet ? Can I put it in the tray without the sheet.
Use aluminum foil in that case.
Hi Sonia, now in this situation not able to find-maize flour. Can I use all purpose flour instead?
Thanks in advance 😊
Shwetha, nachos are made with maize flour only. So APF will not give you that taste and texture.
Sonia…lemme be honest. You are a boon for a beginner like me. Thnq so much for all the lovely recipes.
Thank you so much for your kind gesture Aparna.
Thank u Soniya mam
Can i try this recipe in microwave? What should be the time, temperature and other settings? Outcome will be same?
Nidhi, If MW means MW convection then everything about that is already mentioned in the recipe. Just follow that.
It’s too good
Sonia ma’am, i have one question, while baking these should we need both rods on in OTG or only bottom rod will be on?
Use both the coils, Kusum.
Hi Sonia, I tried your baked nachos. Came out superb but there’s a very bitter after taste. Not little, its too much. Can u please tell me where did i go wrong .
Thanks a lot 🙂
It’s very difficult to actually suggest what went wrong as I never faced such problem.
flour is sweet if it is fresh but becomes bitter after few days .need to keep it in summers in fridge.
i have faced the same problem with maize flour.
well, I haven’t experienced this thing as I always use fresh flour.
Hey, if maize flour is very old or kept for long, it tastes bitter.
Baked nachos came out very well. Thank u
Happy to know you liked the recipe.
Hello…. Mam pls.add your fb recipes in your blog

Blog and FB bake along are two different things and works differently. So for recipes of fb bake along series, please check units in group.
This is such a beautiful recipe Sonia. We have locally grown and milled cormeal . Now I know how to use it 🙂 And definitely, homemade is the best. Your pictorials are so helpful in baking these.
There is no comparison to homemade and when it is made with locally grown ingredients, it becomes more healthy. I seriously want to visit your town as it looks like heaven from your pictures.
This oven baked nacho chips looks delicious nothing can beat a homemade crackers.
True, homemade is best and that is why i prefer to bake most of my stuff at home.
These sound awesome!!! I love that they are baked! Pinned!
I always appreciate your baking skills and now I am eagerly waiting to see your version of it.
Beautiful color! They look quite perfect and very tempting.
Thank you Kelly.
In Texas – or at least the part that has the local grocery store H-E-B, we call what you made, mitad y mitad which means half and half. Half corn and half wheat. They are my absolute favorite tortillas. I look forward to trying your baked chips, Sonia!
Thank you so much for sharing the information with me. Today I learnt something new.
Thanks for the tips and the recipe . I am surely going to bake some nachos today
Once you make, do share the pictures with us on our Instagram and Facebook.
