I love making homemade tortilla chips — it reminds me of the authentic Mexican Restaurants I love to frequent. And they are really simple and quick to make. They go wonderfully with Guacamole or salsa or just to be eaten plain all by themselves.
Homemade Fried Tortilla Chips
- Olive oil, for frying
- 10 fresh corn tortillas
- Salt, to taste
Heat 1-inch of oil in a large frying pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. If your oil is smoking you have the heat up too high.
Arrange the tortillas in a stack and cut into 4 equal wedges. Fry a batch of chips at a time, not to crowd pan, turning occasionally with tongs, until crisp and lightly browned, about 1 minute or less. Drain chips on a paper towel-lined plate; sprinkle lightly with salt and store in an airtight container.
