Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Stack the tortillas on top of each other, then cut into six equal sized wedges.
Place the cut tortillas in a large bowl and drizzle the oil over top. Gently toss the tortilla pieces in the oil until they're all lightly coated. Other herbs and spices can be added at this time, if desired.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread the tortilla pieces out over the surface so that they're in a single layer and overlapping as little as possible. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
Bake the chips for ten minutes, then gently stir and flip the chips. Return the chips to the oven and bake until golden brown (3-5 minutes more). Season with salt once more.
Allow the chips to cool before serving. They will crisp even further as they cool down.
NOTE: Every oven is a little different, as are brands of tortillas. Watch the chips closely for color change and adjust cooking time as needed.
