We’re a little nacho crazy here (remember our Super Bowl nacho showdown?) so we’re celebrating National Tortilla Chip day with a few fresh tortilla chip-making recipes and tips from our favorite FN chefs. Because the ultimate nachos are even better with the ultimate homemade tortilla chip!

Fry them up with Paula: Did you expect less from the queen of the fryer, y’all? Fried Tortilla Chips (made with peanut oil) are one of Paula’s family favorites. See how she fries them up and makes a quick salsa.
