Fried Tortilla Chips
Even though the supermarket provides a bewildering array of choices when it comes to tortilla chips, these are worth the effort. You can make these chips from fresh corn tortillas.
- Arrange the tortillas in a stack and cut into 4 equal wedges. Pour about an inch of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat to 350°F on a deep-fat frying thermometer.
- Fry just a few at a time, because if you overfill the skillet some chips end up soggy. Turn occasionally, until crisp and lightly browned (about 1 minute or less).
- Drain on paper towels; sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired. Store in an airtight container.
- Makes 32 chips.
