Fried Tortilla Chips

Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • 12 large corn tortillas (recipe below), or use storebought, cut into 6 wedges each
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
  • Pour the oil into a large pot, to a depth of 2 to 3 inches, and heat to 375 degrees. Test by dropping in a piece of tortilla. If it bubbles immediately and rises to the surface, the oil is ready.

  • Fry the wedges a handful at a time, stirring to separate, until very lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove with a strainer or slotted spoon, shaking off excess oil, and transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with salt while still warm, and continue frying in batches.
