Time to go the extra quarter mile guys, make your own tortilla chips. There is really no comparison to store bought chips and it is really easy. Cut a stack of corn tortillas into six wedges.


Fry in small batches at 350 for about two minutes until the bubbles slow way down.


Plop out onto paper towels and season with salt immediately. I use popcorn salt but any fine salt will work.


I put them into a paper bag to cool and soak up any excess oil before putting into a ziplock bag. -RP

    "She" tries to keep me healthy. She usually buys the whole grain, baked ones unless I can slip some others 'under the radar'. :whistle: :laugh: :laugh:

    In all seriousness, will have to give the home-made ones a try.

    Thanks, Randy.
  • I've done this a few times. The best part is that you can also add your own spices and "rubs" to add flavor.

    Bought a food processor after reading last week's salsa post. Now I may have to dig out the chicken fryer sized iron skillet and make some homemade tortilla chips!
