If you’re prepping for a party, these are great to make in advance. You can cut the shapes out and bake them just before they’re needed or bake them in advance and serve them cold – they’re delicious warm or cold.

Using a spider-shaped cookie cutter, cut as many spider shapes as you can from the tortilla wraps.

Pop the tortilla spiders on the baking tray and brush or spray them with oil.

Sprinkle the tortilla spiders with poppy seeds. For a really thick coating, pour the poppy seeds into a shallow bowl and dip the oiled side of a tortilla spider into them, then return to the tray and repeat with the remaining spiders.

Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes until crispy and starting to brown round the edges. Make sure you keep a sharp eye on your tortilla chips as they cook as they can burn very easily.
