Today’s super easy recipe is one that my kids were able to do almost entirely on their own. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we made homemade rainbow shamrock chips! They’re crunchy, a little bit salty, and very fun to make! Whether you make these for St. Patrick’s Day or a rainbow-themed party, they are so fun!

I am such a sucker for pretty rainbow treats! Whether it’s St. Patrick’s Day or a rainbow-themed event, there is just something fun about decorating with the colors of the rainbow, don’t you think? You will need a shamrock cookie cutter LIKE THIS ONE, uncooked tortillas LIKE THESE, and rainbow food color (I use THIS kind).

Shamrock Chips

Dip them in salsa, sour cream & onion dip, or whatever you love! You can even eat them plain (that’s how my kids do it). They are crunchy, fresh, and just a little bit salty…..just like homemade chips should be!

You Will Need

  • A shamrock cookie cutter LIKE THIS ONE

  • Water
  • Small, unused paint brushes LIKE THESE
  • Paper plates (or regular plates)

  1. Prepare a baking sheet lined in foil and non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  3. Combine 1 cup of water with a few dashes of salt.
  4. Evenly disperse the salt water into 6 small bowls.
  5. Put 1 drop of rainbow food coloring in each bowl and mix.
  6. Cut out shamrock shapes from the uncooked tortillas. Each tortilla makes about 3 shamrocks.
  7. Place the uncooked shamrocks on paper plates (one at a time) and paint the chips with the various colors of salted water.

  1. These are amazingly fun!! What a brilliant idea! I would love to invite you over to Totally Terrific Tuesday to join the party and share these! I am going to include them in a St.Patty’s day round up I am working on 🙂 whoop whoop!
    Have a great weekend!!

  2. I’m going to try doing them with cinnamon and sugar. Maybe wet the entire tortilla then spring with sugar and cinnamon, paint entire tortilla with a color then cut out? Not sure how they will look, but worth a yummy try!

  3. This is the coolest snack ever! Thanks so much for the tutorial!
