Make Your Own Tortilla Chips

Making your own tortilla chips to your own can easily be done and may save you a bit of money in the long run. Whether you bake or fry the chips is left up to you and your taste buds. To make you will need about 1 cup of oil, more or less depending on the amount of chips you want to make. You will also need some corn tortillas, no need to go super fancy here. Each tortilla will make up to 6 chips so a pack of 12 tortillas will make up about 72 chips. Sounds like a great snack for a couple of snackers and an easy way to make them up 

To start with have your tortillas dry out a bit by leaving them on the counter for a few hours. You will find this will make it easier for them to be worked with. This can also be done by baking the tortillas in the oven on baking sheet at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or 200 degrees for 10 minutes or by microwaving them in a single layer on paper towel for 30 - 60 seconds However be careful to crisp not to dry out

Cut tortillas in 6 pieces 

Pour 1/8 to 1/4 inch oil into a skillet. Heat oil on medium 350 degrees. The oil should be hot but not smoke Have a large platter lined with paper towel Place chips in single layer into skillet Chips should not touch and all sides should be coated with oil. Fry for 2 minutes or til chips start to change color and are firm

Remove chips from oil using a slotted spoon or tongs. Drain on paper towel lined plate. Season with your choice of seasoning Cover with towel to keep warm
