I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Homemade Tortilla Chips

Ingredients

  • The key tho is to start with dry-ish corn tortillas. If you don’t have stale ones, you can:
  • -- Put em on a rack on a baking sheet and put them into the oven at 350 for 5-6 minutes.
  • -- Put em in a single layer on paper towels in the microwave about 30-45 seconds

Directions

For oil - Cut them into the shape you want - I mostly want triangles, so stack the tortillas and cut into 6 wedges - more just makes them too small.

  1. Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a large pan to 350 degrees, and slowly add the wedges, in a single layer.
  2. Fry them until beginning to get golden and crisp - about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove to papers towels, let dry a bit then season with kosher salt - repeat with remaining chips.
    In the oven
  1. Preheat oven to 350, brush both sides of tortillas with a small amount of neutral oil, cut into wedges, put on a rack on a baking sheet (in a single layer) and bake until golden and crispy about 12 to 15 minutes. But they can go from perfect to burnt quickly, so def keep an eye on them.
