Make your own Tortilla Chips!

Home made tortilla chips are some of the easiest things to make! I try to keep frozen corn tortillas on had so encase of unexpected dinner parties or company! These are always a huge hit for guests and gives them something to snack on along with the salsa I can every year.

First take Corn or Flour Tortillas of any size. For this recipe I used smaller white corn tortillas. You will then need to cut the tortillas into the size of chips you would like. for the 6″ round tortillas it is easy just to cut them into fours as shown above.

For the frying part I use my deep fryer. I heat oil to about 350 degrees.

Next you will place the tortillas into the Hot Oil. Please be careful when doing this!!

I like to place the tortillas one at a time but you do not have to do it that way. Just watch to make sure none of them are stuck together as this will prevent your chips from getting crispy.

Fry tortillas for 5-7 minutes or until desired crispness. I like mine extra crispy  😉

After chips are fried use a fry safe kitchen utensil to remove chips from fryer. Drain on a plate covered in paper towels and quickly season with salt…I like to use Red Robin seasoning.

That is it! Let cool and enjoy!!
