  • 6 flour tortillas
  • ¼ cup oil vegetable or canola
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp milk


  • Pour oil into a medium size skillet and heat over medium high heat.
  • Prepare the tortillas by cutting into triangles, if using corn tortillas you can cut into 6 triangles, if using 6 inch flour tortillas they’re typically a bit bigger and can get about 8.
  • Prepare the cinnamon sugar by combining the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir to mix.
  • Add the cut tortillas to the heated oil in batches. Fry each side for about 30 seconds until starting to brown and crispy. Then turn and fry the other side.
  • When done, transfer to a plate or baking tray lined with paper towels. Once out of the oil immediately sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Let cool.
  • Meanwhile, continue frying the remaining tortilla until all tortilla chips are fried.
  • Serve warm or room temperature.

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • Combine all ingredients together and stir until smooth and creamy.
